Hidden Treasures of Bulgaria (2006) | By Albena Shkodrova and Anthony Georgieff

Do you know what landmark can be found in Gumoshtnik? Or Svilengrad?

If you never suspected the existence of the former, and think there are no landmarks at all in the latter, Hidden Treasures of Bulgaria will prove you wrong.

Readable and informative, in both Bulgarian and English, the book introduces 15 natural, cultural and historical landmarks that, for some reason, have either remained outside the popular interest or have merits of which the average Bulgarian or foriegn tourist is unaware.

The reader is taken on a tour – from the border areas of the Strandzha Mountain and the Rezovo River through Karlovo and Pravets to the Radetzky at Kozloduy and the cliffs of Belogradchik and Yaylata. Hidden Treasures of Bulgaria is a book for the traveller who is not afraid to go beyond the established tourist clichés and prefers to stay off the beaten tracks - even if he is headed to more popular destinations, such as the Rila Monastery, Balchik, Mount Shipka, Rozhen or Rupite.
