Good evening, my dear friend,
Good evening, comrade
Welcome to our town,
Welcome to Bulgaria.
In 1968, the incredible Pasha Hristova sang for a first time this wonderful song, which only for a few days became a hit. And not only – this song became one of the symbols of Bulgaria, a reflection of Bulgarian soul, of the huge hospitable and open to the world heart of Bulgarian people.
We would also like to say “Welcome to Bulgaria” to all of you, born outside its boundaries, to you, who have chosen our country for a vacation, to live here or to develop your business.
You have probably needed only two or three days to understand that you have come to the most magnificent place in the world, in a spot with heavenly nature, where wonderful people live. You can find everything here – wonderful sea, endless plains and fields, incredibly beautiful mountains, rivers and lakes, centuries-old forests. There is no such other place in the world where nature has been so generous. Here, guests are always welcome with a smile and wide opened heart. Bulgarians are hospitable, warm-hearted, benevolent, sincere, intelligent people. You will find it out even during your first meeting with them. No matter if you are in the big city or in some lost in the mountain village – you will never feel alone or alien.
And if you want to be not only guests but a part of this wonderful country – learn BULGARIAN FOR FOREIGNERS. It’s true, our language is not easy, but is beautiful, rich and melodious. Through this language, you will also touch Bulgarian spirit, Bulgarian history and culture. Because Bulgaria is not only Stoichkov and yoghurt. Bulgaria – it is the splendid poetry of Botev, Vazov, Yavorov, Valeri Petrov, Damyan Damyanov; it is the novels and stories of Elin Pelin, Yovkov, Dimitar Talev, Nikolay Haytov and Yordan Radichkov. Bulgarian are the lovely voices of Boris Hristov, Nikolay Gyaurov, Rayna Kabaivanska and Gena Dimitrova. Bulgarian are the maidens from the lit by the sun canvases of Vladimir Dimitrov-Maystora, landscapes of Tsanko Lavrenov and scenes of everyday life of Stoyan Venev, Dechko Uzunov and Zlatyu Boyadzhiev.
You can reach this all through our language – one of the oldest languages in Europe, preserved despite all the vicissitudes of our historical destiny.
We are offering to do this with a very good system Bulgarian for foreigners: which combines understandably and interestingly the uneasy Bulgarian grammar with variegated and rich lexis. And after that, when they meet you somewhere with the sincere Bulgarian “Добре дошли” /Welcome!/
