Here are some Bulgarian stamps from my collection. Stamps are a great way of learning about a country's history, customs, nature, arts, etc. Most of the stamps I have are from letters from penpals, friends, family, bills, etc. If you have some old envelopes with stamps you want to throw away, I'll be happy to have them:)
Here's a stamp with Black Sea animals.

That's the first Bulgarian austronaut, Guergui Ivanov. 25 years since he first flew in space (2004).

First row:
Bulgarian-American John Atanasoff, the inventor of the computer.
Antoaneta Stefanova, the latest Chess World Champion for women. (The Men's chess champion for men, Vesselin Topalov, is also Bulgarian!)
Second row:
an old gun
When Bulgaria joins the EU, the cyrillic alphabet, written by Bulgarian saints Cyril and Methodius, will become part of the alphabets of EU members.

An old gospel from the 13th century, kept in the National Library

Various 'historic' stamps

'Communistic' stamps: Karl Marx, Guergui Dimitrov, Pionners, 60 years anniversary of USSR (1982)

A 'Bulgarian' king, imposed to by the great powers in the beginning of 20 century. All the rulers from that time didn't have a single drop of Bulgarian blood, and had to learn the language. They made political blunders and got us into war...
