Our Top 5 most liked Instagram posts @bulgariainyourpocket

14 Jul 2021
Before we go any further – let's be clear – our instagram stats (in terms of followers and likes) are not staggering by any stretch of the imagination, in fact they are quite the opposite which is disappointing based on all the effort we have put in over the years. We started with original photos to compliment our print publications and then switched to reposting the best photos of Bulgaria we could find. For now, with just one exception we have refrained from featuring scantilly clad women. Most popular these days are the drone images which give an added perspective to the beauty of Bulgaria.
So here, just for the hell of it, are our most liked posts over the most recent months – probably not much of a surprise  that they also cover some of Bulgaria's best attractions.

1) Belogradchik Rocks 
These incredible rock formations in the Northwest of Bulgaria are a natural wonder in Bulgaria and a regional tourist attraction. Some of the rocks are up to 200 metres high and were incorporated into the defence of the Belogradchik Fortress as seen on this great drone shot taken by a Swedish travel Photographer.

2) Rila Monastery
Bulgaria's most famous monastery, with its stunning setting nestled in the Rila Mountains is the top must see attraction in Bulgaria. The photographer in this case happens to be a very talented young Scottish videographer whose heart definitely is in Bulgaria.

3) Sofia
As with any rapidly growing city, beautiful old villas are often the casualty of property developers. The House with the Strawberries  in the Doctor's Garden Area (ul.San Stefano 6) thankfully has protected from this fate - it has been listed as a monument of culture and is a classic example of the Secessionist style from the turn of the last century by architect Georgi Kunev.

4) Melnik
This picturesque small town in southwestern Bulgaria, at the foothills of the Pirin mountains, is an architectural reserve with 96 listed buildings. The dramatic earth pyramids (hoodoos) add drama to every picture. Melnik is also home to some excellent red wine production, dating back to as early as the14th century. The photographer Michelle is a Bulgarian musician (viola) who loves the mountains.

5) Sinemorets
This small village and seaside resort to the south of the Black Sea Coast, in the Strandzha Nature Park close to the border with Turkey, has only been open to the public since 1989 after the end of Communism. Nowadays it is a popular summer destination for those still looking for the simple life close to the beautiful beaches in beautiful nature. Let's hope it can keep it's charm! The photographer is a Bulgarian professional, Jivko Iordanov.
