Well-informed and richly illustrated, this book is the third volume of the popular Hidden Treasures of Bulgaria series. It takes the reader to lesser or completely unknown places in Bulgaria that fully live up to the promise of being "hidden treasures." Often located off (or off-off) the beaten track, they are an integral part of what makes today's Bulgaria such a fascinating travel destination. Many of the forts, urbex sites, waterfalls and traditional villages are not to be found in any guidebook, and neither are some of the events and festivals described and photographed in detail here.

This book provides both descriptions and backgrounds. It is the result of many years of travel and research through all parts and history epochs of Bulgaria, from the enigmatic drawings at Magurata Cave and the Roman mosaic heritage of Philippopolis, to Bulgaria's only narrow gauge line, its sea in wintertime and its modern industrial ruins.

Hidden Treasures of Bulgaria is an indispensable source of information for everything that travellers are likely to want to know about this country – and more. It is a tableau vivant of where Bulgaria stands at the beginning of the 21st century: with one foot entrenched in its sometimes controversial past but with the other making determined strides towards its European future.
