Weekend Break in Istanbul

Weekend Break in IstanbulThe grand city of Istanbul is steeped in history with a unique georgraphical positioning that places it half in Asia and half in Europe. It is one of the world's largest cities and is at the centre of Turkey's finance and rich culture.

It’s one of the easiest cities to access from Bulgaria, but relations between the two countries haven’t always been as easy. For almost 500 years Bulgaria was held under Ottoman rule, in which Turkish forces attempted to force the religion of Islam onto the stoically Christian Orthodox nationals. Bulgaria eventually freed itself from the rule and reclaimed much of the land seized by the Ottomans.

Ooh la la, short break in Paris from Bulgaria

short break from bulgaria to parisWe love our Bulgarian home and our life here but there is simply nothing like a short break in France to restore the soul, create romance, feed our imagination and indulge us foodaholics: particularly a trip to Paris.
