Bulgaria is the oldest country in Europe that hasn’t changed its name since it was first established. This happened in 681 AD. Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, was founded 7000 years ago. This makes it the second oldest city in Europe. The gold treasure discovered in the Varna Necropolis is the oldest one in the world. It dates back to 5000 BC.

Bulgaria comes third in the list of countries with most valuable archaeological sites discovered on their territories, preceded only by Greece and Italy. Over 15 000 Thracian tombs have been discovered on the territory of Bulgaria. The bulk of them are yet to be explored. There is solid historical evidence that wine has been produced on the territory of what is now modern-day Bulgaria ever since the Stone Age. Today the country has earned the reputation of a world-class wine producer.
