The Undiscovered Treasure on the Balkans | Tours By Locals & Guided Tours of Bulgaria

The Locals and Their Stories

These are the real people that we’ve met on our journey through Bulgaria. People that we want to meet again and we share their passion for living. These are the people that we want YOU to meet and one thing we promise, they will bring tears to your eyes.


Velika from Chiprovtsi

Let us start with her name – Velika. In Bulgarian, Velika means The Great Being. What really makes her unique is not actually her name, but is what she does with her hands. You might have read about the tradition of carpet-making in Chiprovtsi, but if you did not, then you should not miss her on your trip through Bulgaria.


Maya from Prevala

Do you remember Maya the busy bee?! Well this story is for the hard work and purity in life. For home-made jams and jellies, still boiled on a wood-fired oven. She grew up in a lively village, in an endless green heaven, in the middle of gorgeous mountains, with fresh air and traditions that are still alive.


Susanna and Ivan from Brestovo.

By nationality Susanna is Portuguese. After finishing her education she went to work in Switzerland. After a while she realized that something was missing in her life – silence. She decided to explore a bit more of Europe and fell in love with the countryside of Bulgaria.
