Ideas for a Bulgarian Themed Party
Situated on the edge of the Black Sea, Bulgaria has over the years been influenced by neighbours such as Hungary, Turkey and Russia.
Many festivities in Bulgaria are tied to religious celebrations, such as Christmas and St Nicholas's Day. It is traditional on the latter to eat fish, while on Christmas Eve, vegetarian stuffed peppers are the traditional meal.
On the sporting front, football has been played in Bulgaria since the end of the 19th century, when (originally called "kickball") it was introduced by Swiss sports teachers. Bulgaria's greatest international success to date was in 1994 when, inspired by Hristo Stoichkov, they finished fourth in the World Cup.

Drink for a Bulgaria Themed PartyBulgaria's warm climate is ideal for growing grapes, and Bulgarian wine (both red and white) is therefore generally of a good quality. Wine and beer are both very popular, although the latter has a surprisingly short history of local production. While wine production in Bulgaria dates back thousands of years, the first commercial brewery appeared less than 150 years ago. Search for Bulagran wine at DrinkSupermarket.com. Popular Bulgarian beer brands include Kamenitza, Zagorka and Shumensko, although finding any of these outside their native country may not be easy.
Rakia is a strong brandy-like drink distilled from different types of fruit; apricot, grapes and plum are the most common varieties, although rakia made from mixed fruit is also very common. It is traditional in Bulgaria to have a glass of rakia with some pickles and shopska salad as the first course of a meal.
