About 5,600 tons of sand is used to make the perishable figures. Again, you can admire the renowned Einstein’s most famous genius photo with a tongue of exultation. To feel the true love, independent of the appearance you have to take a look at the sculpture of Beauty and the Beast.

I love history, to walk through old cobblestone streets, to smell the air of the past times and to feel the legends in the air. And I'm lucky to have been born in a country with a glorious past and a lot of stories to tell. Bulgaria was founded more than 1,300 years ago and has never changed its name. But the life of people, their everyday habits, their traditions, their music and their art have changed over the centuries. I invite you to take a walk through the different ages of Bulgaria and to get to know it better.
