In Bulgaria it’s traditional to give an even number of flowers at a funeral.  It’s therefore considered inauspicious to give an even number on a happy occasion, so, always make sure you give somebody an odd number when presenting them with a bouquet (or give them a single flower)


When Bulgarians nod it means “no”.  Fortunately most of them realise that we British mean “yes” when we nod – could get very confusing otherwise!


If you’re considering travelling to Bulgaria, make sure you have at least 6 months left on your passport
