the 40-page "contexts" section is the best part. gives a concise review of the history of the area from minus infinity to present. not so long that you won't finish it, but not so short that there aren't enough details. wish all guidebooks had something like this for the nerdy academic inside me.

otherwise, this guide was comparable to most others i have used. detailed and accurate. i have no complaints.

I just returned from an 8 day Trek in the Mountain areas of Bulgaria, Rila mnts., Pirin and Rhodopi ranges. Although we had a wonderful local guide, I found the Rough Guide to have sufficient information about all the places and sites we visited, in addition to a very good backround of each area, village and city. The book is devided conveniently and written amicably , making it an interesting and easy read while on the roads. Thank you Rough Guide

Has a lot of useful information, but I found the writing in some sections rather slapdash. For example, the section on Bulgarian history has a lot of of dates, names, and places, but was frequently hard to follow. The book rightly highlights the diversity of birds to be found in Bulgaria, which is one of the highest in Europe, but twice boasts of Bulgaria's having "seventy species of heron." I do not believe there are 70 species of heron in the entire world. Even if you include bitterns and egrets, only 10 species of heron are on the official Bulgarian list of birds recorded in Bulgaria.
