A Hidden Treasure - The Old Mosque (Eski Djamia) in Stara Zagora

Normally as hidden treasures we understand something small, that was buried and hidden from invaders, thieves etc. In this case, the architectural and artistic treasure of the 600-year old mosque is hidden because of political reasons: the place is not “politically correct”.…

The Story of the Mezek Thracian Tomb Boar

In 1902 , when Svilengrad and the village of Mezek were still under the domination of the Turkish Empire, Angel Chobana, a local treasure hunter, was digging next to the Mezek Thracian Tomb (then still an mound looking like from outside as a small hill) with the purpose of searching gold treasures. The only object he found was a life-size bronze figure of a boar. He believed that the boar was hallow and was hiding a lot of gold – so heavy was… Continue

Image of Russia abroad - how to fight the stereotypes?

A question by Elena Ustimova was posted in a group about country branding:

How can the image of Russia abroad be improved?

Dear colleagues,

It is widely known that foreign tourists are sometimes afraid of visiting Russia. I think it is all because of the image that the mass media have created about the Russian Federation.

It is so offensive sometimes to hear such questions as:

1. Is it really so cold in Russia? (no, it's not, Russia… Continue

Country branding - an answer to a thread

In general, you should be right about the similarity between country and, as you say, car branding. This is correct for the most known destinations of car brands. Meaning the consumer or the tourist already has a brand “emotion” imbedded in his mind. The brand was created years, even centuries ago and now can be only a question of money and time to make the purchase or enjoy it. That is valid for France (a culture brand), Mexico (cheap beaches, Indian culture), etc., as it is valid for Mercedes… Continue

A lot of the pictures on, from where they come to this network are Stevan's photos during our trips in Bulgaria, Macedonia, Turkey. So, go flickr and enjoy even more beautiful pix. Of course, this network is not a family oriented one - so I don't post pix of Violeta or any other private pix. I poste a pix for Steve, who can use it his profile, but this is because he says that he doesn't have a photo to put on his page:(.

You can also check my first blogpost at and comment on that . Or on any cultural tourism post. As a matter of fact, what bigger cultural discovery than to travel for baby adoption:)

Hi Sis, Thank you. Wonderful pictures! I have tons of Greta pictures. But, no pictures that I want to publish on this web site. If you want, I could send a couple via email.
