The Founding Fathers of Bulgaria is a huge monument that commemorates the first Bulgarian Empire, an ever present reminder of the proud past.
Below me was Buzludzha, the ex-communist headquarters in Bulgaria. As in 70 metres below. I was risking life & limb to take the ultimate selfie.
This is what it’s like hiking to the Rila Monastery, one of the holiest places in Bulgaria and home to over 1,000 years of history.
