The
darkness grew thicker and thicker. Unbroken chains of lights glowed along the
thoroughfares. One belfry after another awoke and great bells began to peal.

Not
far from me a church with yawning doors was engulfing the multitude. The
disappearance of the antlike creatures into this gigantic mouth assumed in my
eyes a disquieting significance. Had not my poor companion been carried along
by the crowd and thrust willy-nilly into this depth of the unknown, out of
which arose a ponderous gnashing and crunching of bronze upon bell-metal?

I
must have uttered a cry, because an old man who some time since had stopped on
the other side of the street to look at me, and who seemed to be seeking an
excuse to address me, said something unintel-ligible and then went away,
looking back reproachfully, enigmatically.

Our old-fashioned suite

I
was fairly twitching with anxiety. Our old-fashioned suite was many-cornered,

Emile Verhaeren (1855-1920)

Emile
Verhaeren was one of the most widely read poets of modern Belgium. Influenced
at first by the French Parnassiens and Natura-lists, he ultimately developed a
style and a philosophy of his own. He began work in the eighties. A large part
of his writings are poems, but in his plays and short stories, clearly the work
of a poet, he achieves effects of striking power.

One
Night is translated by Keene Wallis, and appears in the vol-ume, Five Tales by
Emile Verhaeren, Albert and Charles Boni, New York, 1924, by whose permission
it is here used.

sound of his retreating footsteps. Left

Bulgaria Vacations

Khans, Tzars, Orpheus, Spartacus, Thracians, Levski, Botev … All of them start with capital ‘B’ for Bulgaria. These are also the places that you can see on your Bulgaria vacations.

Bulgaria is the Thracians – great warriors and horsemen that were feared and outsiders respected them. It is also the country of accomplished artists and farmers who grew wealthy from trading jewelry, copper and gold. Their fierce weaponry is in archaeological museums around the country. Anyone who likes to see it, can do it there. Many tombs, discovered mainly in central Bulgaria – the region of Kazanlak and Shipka, reveal the Thracians’ rituals, their beliefs. A gold mask and a bronze head of a Thracian King have been found there.

Bulgaria trips

Since antiquity different tribes and peoples have inhabited the territory of Bulgaria. The country’s many ancient settlements and burial mounds are a proof of that. Present-day Bulgaria was also a cradle of some of the earliest civilizations in Europe. Evidence of that is the oldest gold ornament people have ever discovered. It was unearthed in the Chalcolithic necropolis near Varna. Certainly these are all also available to be visit in your Bulgaria trips.

From the age of Ancient Thrace we have inherited valuable cultural monuments, including tombs such as the Kazanlak tomb, the Aleksandrovska tomb, and the Sveshtarska tomb. We have also inherited treasures (the Panagyursko, Rogozensko, and Valchitransko treasures, among others). Last but not least are the sanctuaries and temples that remind us of times long gone. The holy places at Perperikon, Starosel, Kozi Gramadi, Begliktash, and elsewhere.

Coastal Bulgaria holidays

Working is part of man’s nature. Relaxing is as well. Some love the silence, peacefulness of the mountain while others are absolute lovers of the water, and noisy places with many people. They love the scent of the sea, the sound of the waves. They also love the endlessness of the water, the always hungry seagulls… To them we recommend coastal Bulgaria holidays.

Not until the 1960’s was the Black Sea coastline of Bulgaria developed for mass tourism. At first, mainly the officials of the Communist party benefitted from the few resorts. Soon after that new and sophisticated resorts began to appear quickly attracting tourists from all over the world.
