Duo has been going to many places lately. He’s been all over the globe, from Russia to China, to Arabia to Ethiopia. But the one place he always wanted to visit was Bulgaria! So he flapped his wings and flew into one of the oldest countries in Europe.

He began his trip in Pirin National Park (Bulgarian: Национален парк "Пирин") one of the most beautiful national parks in the world. Streching across the south west of the country which is home to over 118 glacial lakes. Duo learned pretty quickly that swimming in the lakes was not a good idea! He especially loved climbing “Baikushev's pine” (BG: Байкушева мура), the oldest tree in Bulgaria!

Then he flew off to Bulgaria’s capital, Sofia! He loved exploring this ancient city which is over 9000 years old! His favourite site was St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral (BG: Александър Невски). This Bulgarian Orthodox church is located near the parliament building in the heart of the city. He loved the way the golden dome contemplated the sky!

Duo was very tired from the hustle and bustle of Sofia after a few days so he travelled to the Rila Monastery (BG: Рилски манастир), one of the most iconic tourist destinations in the country and also a UNESCO world heritage site attracting over half a million visitors a year! He loved exploring the courtyards and appreciating the many frescos. His favourite part was practicing his Bulgarian with Bukhal, his tour guide!

When Duo came back to his nest, he began a Bulgarian course on Duolingo so everyone could learn this beautiful language!

Please add Bulgarian to Duolingo! I've already applied and working on a Memrise. You can see a preview here

Ah huge thank you to Zzzzz... for making the pictures!!!

Love this! I now want to learn Bulgarian. I've always wanted to go to Sofia, now I really want to! Байкушева мура is incredible! One more thing, where is Duo's sopping wet picture? (after swimming in the glacial lake :D)

I hope Bulgarian will be added. I have learnt a bit Bulgarian because I work with one Bulgarian person, he often comes to Poland and I've gone once to Sofia but only for one week. I will probably go there more times. I also like this song:

And other songs by Mariya Neykova.
