Bulgaria ?

Welcome to Miss Parpulova from Bulgaria. She has come to us via London, England, but shared with us some Bulgarian language learning and some interesting facts about her culture.

Can anyone recall some of the information she shared with us? How about the last name differences?

Some more background info:

"Five centuries of struggle against Ottoman rule taught Bulgarians to value life and freedom above all else. Nevertheless, they have succeeded in keeping their natural tolerance of those who are different; even in the very centre of Sofia you can see a church, a mosque, and a synagogue right next to each other. The entire Bulgarian culture is governed by these principles of freedom and tolerance."

Next year Bulgaria will host a round of the W.R.C.. Who is into that?

If rallying is not your thing, is there a motorsport you do enjoy?

Remember, the coloured words are links to further information.
For example, if you don't know about the Ottoman Empire, you can click on the link to find out more.
Happy learning and remember to comment here to start discussions about what you have learnt.

Speaking of Bulgaria - I recently had a view on my blog from Bulgaria. They arrived on my blog by searching for 'cat and boy very funny' and Bulgarian Google.
