by Bozidar Dimitrov. Published in 2000. It has 112 soft cover pages. Text in English. The contemporary state of Bulgaria covers Europe"s south-east corner. Its territory is 111 000 square kilometers and population about 9 million people. Bulgaria is on 12- 13th place among the fifty European states concerning territory and population, but is quite unknown to the European world. It is hardly the right place here to look for the reasons for this fact. However, the main reason may lie in the circumstance that Bulgaria and the Bulgarians have not "produced" for the last fifty years "bad" news, which would put the country and its citizens on to the top of news agencies" and media"s prime-time. In Bulgaria, during the period of communist rule (1944-1989) Czech, Hungarian or Polish events did not happen (which, according to some people is not so good). The transition to democracy and market economy has also been peaceful and calm without bloodshed that turned in red the transition in Romania and Russia. Bulgaria has avoided the civil war too, which is still shaking neighboring Yugoslavia. In Bulgaria, there are no ethnic and religious problems, despite the fact that considerable percent of its citizens belong to different ethnic minorities and several religions are professed (Orthodoxy, Catholicism, Islam and Judaism). The specialists in this area even start talking about Bulgarian ethnic model, ensuring peace, understanding and co-operation between ethnic and religious communities.
