Bulgarian National Anthem

The Bulgarian national anthem was written in 1885 by Tsvetan Radoslavov, a Bulgarian student who was just about to leave for the Serbo - Bulgarian war. The Bulgarian national anthem is called Mila Rodino which translates as Dear Motherland.

Below is the Bulgarian national anthem translated into English

Stately old mountain,
next to it the Danube blue,
shining upon Trakiya,
the sun burns over Pirin. (area of the Rhodope mountains)

Dear motherland,
you are paradise on earth,
your beauty and your charm,
ah, they have no bounds.

Countless fighters gave their lives for our beloved people.
Mother, give us manly strength to carry on their course.
