You might want to add that the region Macedonia in Bulgaria is definitely not to be confused with the region called Macedonia in Greece, or the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia which sits between the two.
The classical region known as Macedonia was split between the three after the Second Balkan War of 1912, with Greece and FYROM receiving most of that region. Incidentally, despite the FYROM's separation from Bulgaria since that time, many Bulgarians do not recognize the Macedonian ethnicity or language as separate from Bulgarian. This is despite the international community as a whole, and Macedonians themselves asserting them as being now separate.
This just goes to show that if possible one should avoid talking politics while in the Balkans, you never know who you will offend.
This leads to a somewhat awkward history and folk culture, with both Bulgarians and Macedonians insisting various historical figures, folk songs etc. belong to their culture.
Also it's worth adding, since we're summarising the cultural history of this lovely country, that Bulgarians are a Slavic people whose religious inclinations can be summarised as majority Christian Orthodox (they have their own Bulgarian Orthodox Church) and minority Muslim. There are also other minorities.
And yes, there are donkeys in Bulgaria, same as everywhere else, but we should be careful to avoid portraying Eastern Europe as some twee backwater where modern technology doesn't reach. The last 20 years or so have seen a huge effect on Balkan nations in terms of Westernisation.
