I really liked the idea of a self-guided tour. It bothered me a bit that I would have to travel independently to an unfamiliar place, but after Larisa’s instructions and a very detailed map, everything became clear and simple. The audio accompaniment of the tour is thought out to the smallest detail. I am fond of the history of Bulgaria and was able to learn a lot from the tour a lot of new and interesting. Many thanks! Recomend for everybody!
