Bulgaria

I know this will be surprising to many, but for me, postcard wise, Bulgaria is a rare country (esp. for written and stamped cards) even though its so close to here...but there, i have more Brazilian cards in my collection, than Bulgarian....ironic....


and i got this one thanks to the Slavic RR.....probably my favourite RR ever...
The only place i have been to from the places shown on the card is actually Sofia...and even that was time time ago (i cant count my visit in 2006 regarding the DM concert coz then i didnt see a single thing from Sofia except the Locomotiv stadium where the concert was held)
I was wondering...if Bulgaria hadnt imposed the visa issue, would i have been visiting it more often or would it have been the same as now...ive never been there on a summer holiday even though its a huge trend among Macedonians...id like to see the *new* Bulgaria though...or the one that developed after entering the EU...
Well, since there is also the Rila Monastery on these pictures, ill label this under UNESCO as well..even though its just a small image and not a single view card....i still have my doubts about this issue, and whether i should label such multiview cards as UNESCO...but for now i still stick to it.....the other day i tried to update my UNESCO list with the sites im having but its a bit tough, as counting my postcards is as well...and btw, im also sick and have an annoying cold and just feel f***** up in general coz of it with total lack of energy and desire to do anything...plus there are some other things in question which add up to it, but more about it some other time...



the huge stamp was issued in May this year and comes from a set of 4 stamps representing Fauna and Night Birds of Prey...Owls in particular, and here the Strix Uralensis is shown.
the other smaller stamp comes from a set of 6 definitives issued in 1999 representing Historical sites, fountains...
