The Bulgarian National Anthem, Mila rodino, or Dear Motherland, speaks of Bulgaria as an "Elysium on earth." But toponyms in this country referring to paradise are few and far between. In fact, you would be hard-pressed to find any.
References to the devil, hell and the less paradisal side of life, on the other hand, abound. Here you get rivers, bridges, fields, hills and so on and so forth called either dyavolski, or devilish, "of the devil"; or adski, "of hell." Some have been named after hell's Turkish equivalent, Dzhendem.
In the next issue of Vagabond we will bring you the full story of the discrepancy between the poetics of Bulgaria's National Anthem and the "hellish" reality of its proper names, but here we have the following question for you.
The hill in front of the young couple in the picture is called "Hell."
Where in Bulgaria are you?
