Few years ago i was in staying in Plovdiv. Nice city, quite different from Sofija. Bulgarians ok people, accessible, little bit “rowdy”, like most South Slavs.
But what i noticed, there are a lot of swastika graffiti all around, and lot of Gypsies.
My group went out in Plovdiv and Sofija, we had a quite nice time. Bulgarian girls also very talkative Night clubs are great, countryside is beautiful, infrastructure mostly socialist era.
To it is very nice country.
