An envelope with 3 beautiful Bulgarian sites arrived today. I also love the great stamps on the envelope...

Views of the Vitosha mountain,one of the tourists symbols of Sofia and the closest site for hiking, alpinism and skiing.The Boyana Waterfall and St.Al. Nevski Memorial Church,a magnificent neo-Byzantine cathedral-sized church, topped by copper and golden domes.

The Rhodopes, the greenest and most picturesque mountains are spread over 14,737 km2, of which 12,233 km2 are on Bulgarian territory. The mountains are about 220 km long and about 100-120 km wide, with an average altitude of 785 m. 15 reserves have been established in the region, some of which under UNESCO protection

It is the largest Thracian temple tomb found in Southeastern Europe. It dates back to the 5 century and most probably is of Stalk, a Thracian ruler of the Odris Kingdom. On the postcard: A Southwest view from the Temple on the Chetinyova Mound- A detail from the decoration in the spherical chamber - The frontage of the Temple - A part of the Krepida.
