A LAND RICH IN DIVERSITY
Bulgaria is located in Southeast Europe on the Balkan Peninsula. Bordered by the Black Sea to the east and the Danube to the north, Bulgaria shares borders with Turkey, Greece, Macedonia, Serbia and Romania. Bulgaria is one of the most geographically diverse countries in Europe, and you can travel from the seaside to ski slopes in a single day. With many hiking trails, protected sites of historic interest, spas, wine trails and opportunities for eco-tourism and adventure sports, Bulgaria is one of Europe’s most exciting, hospitable (and affordable) destinations. The country boasts delicious and fresh cuisine, offering a variety of savory dishes to please every taste.
“The Rough Guide to Bulgaria” named Blagoevgrad the “coolest place in southwest Bulgaria,” and with good reason. It’s a small, vibrant university town within an hour’s reach of the capital Sofia. Here you’ll be spoiled with 2.5 km of leafy park alleys for strolling, nightclubs, an opera house, restaurants and a theater. Bulgaria’s most stunning natural attractions are within an hour’s drive: two world-class ski resorts, the spa town of Sandanski, the Seven Rila Lakes, not to mention the off-road biking and rafting adventures nearby, and the breathtaking hiking trails a short walk from the campus! Enjoy clean air and lovely nature both inside and around town.
