Bulgaria

Description

E5, Kom-Emine - by Henk Nouws Bulgaria is a lovely country for long distance hikers. Most famous are Rila, Pirin and Rhodope mountain ranges. The Balkan mountains (Stara Planina) are perhaps less spectacularly high, but no less interesting in terms of flora and fauna. The European long distance trail E3, of which the Bulgarian section is known as "Kom-Emine", runs right across the Stara Planina from western border with Serbia to the Black Sea in the east. This magnificent waymarked trail, through old forests of beech and oak, passing remote huts and open grassy ridges with herds of horses running free,  will leave a lasting impression on any long distance hiker. A second European long distance trail, E4, leads across the Bulgarian Vitosha mountains south of Sofia, and there are several other well-marked long distance trails and lots of mountain huts in Bulgaria. Bringing camping gear can be handy though.

Inland Bulgaria has a temperate continental climate, with a more maritime, almost mediterranean climate along the Black Sea coast. In the mountains, July, August and September are warm and mostly dry. Nevertheless, be prepared for sudden weather changes and drops in temperature at all times, and fierce thunderstorms in particular.

    Hello, Getting a fake and a real (genuine) passport, ID or driving
    license or any other document is simple. we can make you both real and
    fake documents.
    However, the real documents are more expensive than the fake because
    it takes time, skill and contacts to get it done. Note that, the fake
    is going to be 100% unique and in very good quality. The difference is
    based on the registration of the numbers. The real Document will be
    registered with the country's database so you can use it to travel to
    any country of your choice or in the country, mean while the fake will
    not be registered but can be used as well.
