I was really impressed by the houses architecture very common in the area which I haven't seen in other places in Bulgaria. I find these houses extremely beautiful and I am sorry that I am not so determined to settle down (despite my age) and to buy myself such a house.
When you are at a restaurant, expect that the waiter does confuse (this is not the right word, since in Bulgarian culture it is just like that) the body-language between saying yes and saying no. So, when you want to order the waiter gives you a sign that looks as if he sais NO, but means Yes, I am coming. And for tips, dont give them, for they are not appreciated (a very good additude, since I have never understand the idea of giving tips to waiters but not to people sitting at the cash-machine at a supermarket)
