My name is Larisa, I was born and lived in Russia. But in 2015, fate brought me to Bulgaria. I fell in love with this beautiful country - in its color, traditions and nature. That's when I decided to stay here to live. I began to write useful articles about Bulgaria and acquaint tourists with interesting places. Gradually, I created several routes and opened a travel company Audio Guide Bulgaria. I put my ideas into author's guided tours with an audio guide. They are recorded in 8 languages - Russian, German, Bulgarian, English, Spanish, Italian, French, Greek and Turkish! These are fascinating and little-known facts of the history of Bulgaria with legends and stories. The most interesting and little-known objects of history are marked in my tourist maps, as well as the streets where you can take beautiful memory and photos.

And entering the schoolyard you will see the old Armenian church.
