Today Bulgaria corresponds by territory – apart from some marginal reductions – to “Greater Bulgaria”, a powerful kingdom formed in medieval times and which since then, despite the subsequent five centuries of Turkish domination, has preserved its own autonomous cultural, linguistic and religious context as well as a precise territorial location in the Balkan area. Geographical heart of the country are the Balkan mountains, which occupy the central-southern portion; to the N the Danube has always marked the dividing line with Romania, to the S the Pirin and Rodopi mountains delimit the borders with the Hellenic area. This precise cultural and territorial identity was translated in the decades following the Second World War in an estrangement from the rest of the region: loyal and grateful to the Soviet Union for the aid received after 1947 – to the point of seriously negotiating entry into the USSR as the Sixteenth Federated Republic – the leadership Communist in Sofia has kept the country in a state of isolation and hostility towards all its neighbors, from which ancient and never dormant territorial rivalries as well as new political barriers divided it. The shock of 1989 was therefore all the stronger, when at the same time Bulgarian citizens saw all the traditional constants and constraints of their existence disappear, in the economic, political and social fields, suddenly finding themselves part of a continent from which they were largely excluded. Thus the new democratic Bulgaria got off to a very difficult start, with a profound general crisis that brought very serious consequences: first of all, the unpunished spread of corruption and crime at all levels of society. Luckily, the crisis has not produced clashes and conflicts – as has happened elsewhere in Eastern societies – and the country has managed to maintain a climate of peace and relative tranquility thanks to which the economy has also started up again; It was also possible to keep Bulgaria linked to Europe, until the decisive step of the signing of the Accession Treaty EU. According to COUNTRYAAH, Bulgaria is a nation in Eastern Europe, the capital city of which is Sofia. The latest population of Bulgaria is 6,948,456.

Given their course, the Balkan mountains play a notable role in determining the climate: to the S and N of the chain there are significantly different conditions, since the influences of the continental air masses predominate on the N and on the S of the Mediterranean ones. Temperatures testify to this climatic contrast. In the Danube region there are strong temperature variations annual temperatures, with winter temperatures down to –25 ºC and summer temperatures up to 40 ºC (in Ruse the average in January is below –1 ºC, that in July reaches 25 ºC), while in southern Bulgaria, although the high summer temperatures persist, there are more moderate winter values ​​ (0.3 ºC on average in January in Plovdiv). Slightly mitigated the thermal averages on the Black Sea (in Varna January and July record 1.2 ºC and 22 ºC), which also has a limited influence. Special conditions exist on the surveys; already at the Sofia altitude (555 m) winters are harsh, with January averages of –3 ºC. The different conditioning of the climate to the continental and Mediterranean air masses means that winters in the N are basically stable, as they are subject to the anticyclone Siberian, while the southern section of the country participates in the winter conditions of Mediterranean bad weather. The rainiest season is spring, from May to June; but rainfall is generally scarce, with average rainfall of 500-600 mm per year. The maximums are recorded on the reliefs, especially in the Rhodopes and Pirin, affected by the summer “orogenic” rains promoted by the humid currents of the Aegean Sea, and on which there is abundant snowfall. The driest part of the country is the south-eastern one and in general the whole Marica valley (values ​​never exceeding 500 mm); scarce rains also occur on the Pontic coast.
