On Our Travels With Darcy's Postcard Challenge - Bulgaria

My postcard and book page are digital at the moment, created in Serif's Craft Artist and I will turn them into paper copies for my journal when I get back. Knew nothing about Bulgaria until I started this week's challenge. I was fascinated by the ruins and artifacts that are found all over Bulgaria from the Thracian peoples. They were Indo-Europians who lived in South Eastern Europe and much of the area where they lived is now in Bulgaria. They appear  in Greek mythology and soldiers from there served with Hannibal. I liked this fresco uncovered in Kazanlak which is shown on my postcard.
My page shows the Alexander - Nevsky Cathedral in Sofia and the pocket the Bachkovo monastory.
Hope to get round to see all yours.
