Bulgaria: Culture and Arts
A Country of Superb Variations
Bulgaria has a long and rich artistic heritage, and with several UNESCO listed World Heritage Sites, visitors interested in culture, arts and history will be truly spoilt for choice. Major cities like Sofia, Plovdiv and Varna all have a vibrant cultural and artistic scene, including some excellent museums and art galleries, as well as well-patronised theatres and concert halls and there are frequent music and arts festivals in towns all over Bulgaria throughout the year, so whenever you visit, you’re bound to catch one of them. If you want to explore the country in depth, you can visit Thracian burial mounds, Roman ruins, medieval fortresses, splendidly decorated Orthodox churches and monasteries and wonderfully preserved villages full of timber-framed houses.
