Journey Overview

Present day Bulgaria was a cradle of early civilization, with a unified ethnicity that dates back to the 7th century, and is one of the oldest Christian states in Europe. In Romania unique historical and architectural treasures nestle within an unspoiled and romantic landscape. Brooding mountains and dense forests cover a quarter of the land mass, adding atmosphere to the romantic and spine-tingling legends that abound. Both countries have benefitted and suffered due to their location at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, their cultures greatly enriched by the East and their independence trampled by invaders.
