WHERE IN BULGARIA? © Anthony Georgieff

During the Second World War Bulgaria never declared war against the Soviet Union. However, in the period 1941-1944 the Soviet Union did conduct undeclared warfare against Bulgaria, especially along the Black Sea coast where Soviet submarines torpedoed Bulgarian ships and engaged in other less-than-friendly activities.

This, of course, belongs to history – or does it? Stalinist monstrosities glorifying the Red Army still dot the Bulgarian Black Sea coast – as they in fact do every chunk of Bulgaria, making it the only former Warsaw Pact country not to scrap them or put them in a museum.

Where in Bulgaria are you?
