While Bulgaria may not be Europe’s most obvious tourist destination, it does warrant some attention. Since the collapse of communism and the establishment of a democratic government in 1990, Bulgarians have worked hard at rebuilding their war-torn nation. For those travellers in search of a summer getaway, Bulgaria’s Black Sea coastline is rapidly becoming a popular destination.
