Bulgarian transliteration

1) Common English names where they exist as this is an English language website.

2) Other place names use the Bulgarian institute for standardization transliteration of the Bulgarian, but we like 'â' for 'ъ' to avoid mispronunciation.

3) For many specific terms the usual form is the UN system transliteration.

About this website:

In time we hope to expand our website on Bulgaria to complement our website on Romania. Again we have was based this first version on an earlier booklet we produced for the ISTD to accompany their Bulgarian dance syllabus.

This site is permanently under construction and expands as time allows.

Our rewards are the contacts and interesting responses.

Bulgarian traditional costumes (ethnic dress, national dress)

Bulgarian folk costume in Bulgaria is the garments that were worn in Bulgarian villages until the beginning of the 20th century. These garments were hand made in the villages using materials that were produced locally. The basic structure of the clothing worn by men and women for workdays and holidays remained the same for many hundreds of years, until urban influenced fashion and factory produced clothes became available. more >>>

Bulgarian traditional dance

Bulgaria is a relatively small country but within its modern boundaries a wide diversity of folk dance styles can be found. This is probably the main reason why Bulgarian dances prove so popular among international folk dancers. more >>>
