Topic: WHY ARE BULGARIAN RAILWAY PLATFORMS SO LOW?

I would think that the 'low-platform'', ''high-train'' would have neen the norm pretty well throughout the world, in earlier days of train travel. Simply ask yourself: which is easier and cheaper: to bolt a couple of steps below the doors, or to build up or dig down, in order to make the bottom of t...

Obviously people came to Bulgaria for a variety of reasons: for most, like us, money played a part in making the decision - we believed that our limited resources might give us a better standard of living here than we could ever hope to look forward to in UK. There is, however, another element which...

Why are people STAYING in Bulgaria?

We fell in love with Bulgaria on the first day we arrived, and since then, our love of the country and it's people have only increased. Even then it felt as if we had, 'come home'. After 5 years, we are still regularly surprised and even amazed, not only by the beauty of the land and it's wildlife,...

Don't know if this link, sent to me by a Bulgarian friend living in Solon, will work, but it's well worth watching, and has English sub-titles. _________________________________________________________________ 1 part: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vsmnx7jXhv0 2 part: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

OK; lets say that there are people, relatively few in number, who are leaving, and for a variety of reasons. It's time to end discussing semantics, and jumping on poor old Tim for his, possibly injudicious use of the word, 'failure', and move to a thread about the reasons why those of us who are sta...

I am usually in agreement with you, Hippy Boy, but in this instance, I find myself at odds with some of your comments. If we were to believe the posts made by many contributors here, then they must be prophets, and able to see into the future. How can those who have been forced to return to the UK, ...

Dimitar Nikolov? Mayor of Burgas? Is he the guy who, with a couple of mates, shot a deer in a wild-life reservation near Burgas? They were found, each armed with a shotgun, by the body of the, 'just shot' deer, but got off the charge by claiming they were looking for mushrooms. I guess there must be...
