Dobrina village seems to have made the national news earlier this year as the location of an illegal fag factory! http://bg.time.mk/cluster/1fb489c8fc/razbiha-nelegalna-fabrika-za-cigari.html Ooh, there's even a picture of one of the expensive-looking machines in this article: http://varna.dir.bg/ne...

Religion was not "banned" in the People's Republic. There were many problems associated with practising though. Well, banned, shunned, forced underground, whatever, but apparently many protestants, including Hristo Kulichev (the man behind the newest Bible translation) were actually imprisoned, eve...

There have been problems in getting an accepted translation of the Bible into Modern Bulgarian (ie post-1945 Language Reform). When I was last in the Methodist Church they were still using the older versions of the translations. The Language used in the Orthodox Church Bible and services is Old Lit...
