Diplomats, intellectuals, writers and the media attended the launch of A Shadow Journey: A Guide to Elizabeth Kostova's Bulgaria and Eastern Europe, the latest book published by the Free Speech International Foundation. The event took place on 13 June, in the Peroto Literary Club in the National Palace of Culture.

A Guide to Elizabeth Kostova's Bulgaria and Eastern Europe is the first Bulgarian book promoting literary travel through this country and the region. It was inspired by the real-life and the imaginary places in Bulgaria and the Balkans described in Kostova's bestselling novels The Historian (2005) and The Shadow Land (2017). The book takes the reader to places such as crumbling central Sofia, the subterranean world of Istanbul and the locations connected to Wallachian Prince Vlad III, aka Dracula. Significantly, it explains the contexts: from vampires in the Balkans to local food, Chalga music, driving on the Bulgarian road and the fake "traditional" architecture.

A Guide to Elizabeth Kostova's Bulgaria and Eastern Europe was published with the support of the America for Bulgaria Foundation.

It is available on amazon.co.uk, amazon.com and vagabond.bg/fsi. It is also in the good bookstores in Bulgaria.
