Bulgaria is Europe’s sixteenth-largest country bordered by Romania, Serbia, North Macedonia, Greece and Turkey with a population of 7 Mio. The Bulgars founded the First Bulgarian Empire in AD 681, which dominated most of the Balkans and significantly influenced Slavic cultures by developing the Cyrillic script. In 1396 it fell under Ottoman rule for nearly five centuries. In 1946 Bulgaria came under the Soviet-led Eastern Bloc and became a one-party socialist. In 1991 Bulgaria adopted a democratic constitution and became member of the European Union, NATO, the Council of Europe and the OSCE. Bulgaria is a developing country and currently ranks 52nd in the Human Development Index, the lowest development rank in the European Union.
