When venturing out to the Balkan nation of Bulgaria, you’ll likely be visiting Devil’s Bridge and taking a selfie in front of the Bulgarian State Monument. But as for the things you shouldn’t do, you might be a bit clueless. Just like any travel destination, there’s a list of things you should do and a list of things you should avoid. Here are a few things you should avoid that will make your stay in this cultural melting pot more enjoyable.
1. Don’t Crack Jokes
We’re not saying you should completely leave your humor at home before you visit, but be mindful of the kind of jokes you crack in the presence of a Bulgarian. By nature, they love making self-deprecatory jokes, but when the tables are turned, they don’t appreciate being the butt of a foreigner’s jokes. To be sure you don’t cross the line and come off as insensitive or downright rude, go easy on the humor.
