The first ever English-language guide to Jewish heritage in Bulgaria. Designed as a "journey through both time and territory." Contains introductory chapters on early Jewish history in the Balkans, life in the Ottoman Empire (1393-1878), Jewish going-ons in independent Bulgaria (1878-1944), Jewish decline under Communism (1944-1989), and Jewish life post-1989. A special section deals with the famous rescue of the Bulgarian Jews from the Holocaust "paid off" by Jews in Aegean Thrace, Vardar Macedonia and Pirot who were deported to Nazi-occupied Poland. Richly illustrated with superb photography, this book focuses on what remains of the Jewish presence in Bulgaria now: synagogues, old cemeteries, remnants of Jewish neighbourhoods in Sofia, Plovdiv, Vidin, Ruse, Varna, Burgas, Yambol, Samokov, Dupnitsa, Kyustendil, Gotse Delchev and elsewhere. With practical information how to reach even the lesser, off-the-beaten track sites, addresses, telephone numbers and contact details of Jewish communities. A must for anyone interested in Jewish heritage in Eastern Europe in general and Bulgaria in particular.

Review of Varna
...A visit to Varna was one of the highlights of my holiday in Bulgaria this summer. There's something for everyone. For the young there is a Dolphinarium, which, unfortuneately I didn't find time to visit. Between the Dolphinarium and the town centre are the Sea Gardens. These gardens contain a 'Monument to Fighters Against Fascism' (they lost), a long tree lined avenue with wide, well tended...
Advantages: very interesting show Disadvantages: the pool is small
...Varna - one of my favorites cities
I like to go in Varna because of the pleasant atmosphere. There is a big pedestrian zone with a lot of shops, restaurants and attractions. The children like the pop-corns and the ice cream.
There is a big and beautiful Sea Garden in Varna. There are small restaurants in the Garden near the Sea. You will have the pleasure to taste the fresh fish...
