Bulgaria

Roar… We have now left Romania and we had to cycle across a bridge called the ‘friendship bridge’ into Bulgaria.

We were sad when we got to Ruse as we had to leave the Danube River behind. It goes in a different direction to the way we need to cycle in. We cycled off and had to cycle up some hills. They hurt our paws. The weather also changed from sunshine to rain. We had to get our rain jackets out.

The capital city of Bulgaria is called Sofia. Can you find it on the map?

In Bulgaria, they use a different alphabet. It is called a Cyrillic alphabet. Some of the letters look similar and some look different. Can you write your name in Cyrillic? Use this site to help you…

Can you remember which other country we have visited that uses the Cyrillic alphabet?

The east part of Bulgaria borders a sea called ‘the Black Sea’. We were excited as it was the first time we had seen the sea since we left England.

It was too cold to play on the beach though.
This is the church in a town called Pomerie.

We had to cycle away from the flat River Danube and into the hills. It turned cold and wet when we got up in the hills…
