The European Commission wants a clear plan from Bulgaria to close its coal-fired power plants and ensure that European funding for the regions does not go only to the capital, Sofia. These are the two conditions set by Brussels for consideration of the Bulgarian Recovery Plan and the Partnership Agreement for the 2021-2027 period.
Bulgaria is a lovely country for both tourists and international students who want to further their education. Many people who've had the opportunity to study in Bulgaria often praise the country's amazing ski resorts, mountains, beaches, warm welcoming people, and cities. Bulgaria has a long and proud history that goes as far back as the year 681.
Bulgaria's national volleyball team under 19 lost the final of the World Cup in Tehran with 0:3 sets (-20, -19, - 19) against Poland and thus remained with the silver medals, which is also a huge success.
The Bulgarians offered almost no resistance to their opponent, as the fatigue from the two grueling matches against Italy and Russia, won after a tiebreak, clearly had its say.
Bulgaria has begun construction of the longest tunnel in the Balkans, as part of the railway between Sofia and the Bulgarian Black Sea city of Bourgas.
The tunnel is located about 30 kilometres from Sofia in a mountainous area and is 6.8 kilometres long, making it twice as long as Bulgaria's current longest tunnel, in Koznitsa.
