The Bulgarian National Anthem

This is the Bulgarian National Anthem written by Tzvetan Radoslavov. The text has been changed over the years as history has changed in Bulgaria. The current wording of the anthem is translated and reads as follows:

Stately Balkan Mountains,
next to it the Danube sparkles,
the sun shines over Thrace
and blazes over Pirin.

Dear Motherland,
you are heaven on earth,
your beauty, your loveliness,
ah, they are boundless.

I have picked this video version as it has some great pictures of Bulgaria to stir emotions. The Bulgarian people are very proud of their country and respect their anthem.
