|Bulgaria, located on the Balkan
Peninsula in Sou-theast Europe, is arguably the most stable country
in the region. The country has been spared the tur-moil of unrest
that most of it's neighbouring coun-tries have went through on the
road to establishing democracies. The population of Bulgaria is appro-ximately
Bulgaria is a country blessed with a great deal of geographical diversification.
Three mountain ranges run through the country (Stara Planina-The Balkans,
The Pirin and the Rhodophi) offering skiing in the winter. The Black
Sea borders the country to the east, with 354 kilometres (218 miles)
of coast line. The climate on the coast is warm and dry in the summer,
making Bulgaria's Black Sea coast a favo-urite holiday destination
for many Eastern Europe-ans for the past 35 years. In the 1980's,
many We-stern Europeans began to discover the Bulgarian coast as a
holiday destination. The average tempe-rature of the Sea along the
south coast is 25 C (77 F) in July and August.
In 2010, a new government was elected by the people of Bulgaria,
GERB, which is headed by Boiko Borisov. Mr. Borisov previously held
the post as head of MVR overseeing the police force of Bulagria. GERB
ran on the platform of "stamping out corruption". Bulagria joined NATO
in 2004 and achieved membership in the European Union in 2007.

300 sunny days per year. The Black Sea Coast averages over 1,700 hour

companies offer charter flights directly to the coastal areas.

wars and civil unrest, Bulgaria has remained peaceful.

when the property market in Bulgaria was just being discovered on a larger scale.
