Berkay Hilmi Zengin, Turkey Bulgaria is beautiful and interesting country with scenic nature, attractive sisghts, rich culture and history. I am happy, because I have made the best choice for me to study in University of Ruse. I don’t have any problems being an international student, because people around me make feel at home. Lecturers and staff from the International Students Directorate are very hospitable and pleasant and I can always count on their support and cooperation. I am happy that they give me the opportunity to develop myself firstly as a person and individuality and secondly – to build international friendships, which I hope will last lifelong. Thanks to the annual Festival of the international students we have the possibility to learn about the Bulgarian culture and traditions, as well as those of the other countries. At the same time I can present my own country’s traditions trough singing and dancing. Once again I would like to thank to my lecturers, International Students Directorate and all Bulgarian people.
