Hello from Sofia, Bulgaria. I’m here for the 4th Annual Golden Kuker International Animation Festival. More about the festival, shortly.
Right now I want to tell you a bit about Bulgaria and its capital, Sofia. Bulgaria is a member of the European Union. It’s located in the Mediterranean Region of Europe. It has beaches on the Black Sea and is a neighbor to Romania, Turkey, Greece and Serbia.
Sofia is a great, vibrant city, one of the oldest in Europe. The streets of Sofia lie on the remains of a 7,000 year old civilization and the city itself was founded over 2,500 years ago. Throughout the city are sites with active architectural digs taking place, uncovering the imprints of Roman emperors, Alexander the Great, Constantine the Great, and Macedonian Kings. Modern day Sofia has an active night life, vibrant cultural scene and dozens of important museums. Great food! All in all, it’s a terrific place to visit and would be reason enough to visit next year’s Golden Kuker festival.
