Bulgarian was the first Slavic language to be written. It first appeared in writing in the 9th century using the Glagolitic alphabet, which was gradually replaced by an early version of the Cyrillic alphabet over the following centuries.
Bulgarian is very closely related to Macedonian, the two languages being largely mutually intelligible.
Bulgaria is located at the crossroads between Europe and Asia, and Bulgarian lands have been populated since antiquity. Stories and folklore still form an important part of life where legends and traditions are passed down through generations.
