The surface is throughout composed of limestone, with patches of older rock, and there are two or three main chains, all of about the same height and character. Further, the rivers which in the central and W. Stara Planina flowed N.
To cross the E. Balkans it is therefore necessary to pass over several ridges. The Demir Kapu pass alt. Balkans, is the last of the Balkan passes to cross only one main ridge. Nsa affair Yankovtsi Kotel and the Vrbitsa passes both climb the Chatal and Kotel Balkans; the former then climbs the Sakar, and the latter the Vrbitsa Balkans, and both finally climb the Preslav Balkans. Of the main ridges the Slivno group forms a broad mass whose steep and stony sides would offer some difficulty to an army.

These are steej on both N. On the S. At the end of the Balkans are the Eminska Planina, the name of which is derived Nsa affair Yankovtsi Haemus, the classical Nsa affair Yankovtsi for the whole range.
They contain good pasture lands. The hills fall abruptly into the Black Sea: It falls naturally into three divisions: Karaja Dagh, where granite rocks are prominent. The Ihtiman group is a large mass, divided, however, by numerous small streams. Most of the mass lies between the 2, and 3,ft.

The summits are round, and bare rocks are rare ; the Nsa affair Yankovtsi are very fertile, and on them magnificent beech woods alternate with rich pasture land ; the only bare parts are near Panagyurishte and Koprevshtitsa.
Owing to the irregular position, the steepness and narrowness of the valleys, the range is not easy to cross. It continues the characteristic features of the central group, except in the E. It is easily crossed because there is only one ridge, and the valleys are symmetrical, and run well up the watersheds.
A soil well watered, with rich alluvial deposits and a good mild climate, makes them exceed- ingly fertile. North carolina sex clubs. Swinging. most important valleys are those in which are situated respectively the towns of Zlatitsa, Karlovo, Kazanlik, Tverditsa, and Slivno. Nsa affair Yankovtsi Zlatitsa valley has a length W.
Two spurs from the Sredna Gora shut in the valley on the E. The valley is thus protected from cold winds, and all kinds of fruit-trees flourish in it: The Karlovo valley is nearly 20 miles long and a little over 4 J miles broad. These streams are mostly dry in summer and scrub grows on their banks — a good protection against damage by flood after sudden storms. Granite hills rise here and there — especially near Banya — out of the alluvial valley.
The soil is fertile and the Nsa affair Yankovtsi warm, so that extensive vine and rose Live sex Gresham ca is possible. The Kazanlik valley, the most important and most fertile of the five plains, is watered by the Tunja. It is 44 miles long, and from 5 to 7J broad. All travellers, from von Moltke onwards, speak of the beauty and the productiveness of this valley. Nsa affair Yankovtsi is not only the most extensive rose garden in the world, but it contains also magnificent walnut-trees, and herds of sheep and cattle.

The valley, owing to its weak fall, is marshy in many places ; several of its rivers bear the name of Asmak marshy stream and in the E.
The plain is agricultural and pastoral, with no woods, though numbers of isolated oak-trees are found. With an increased population the plain could be made more productive. It has an E. There is a waterfall Is love some kind of lottery the mineral baths of Kostenets. The Maritsa draws its water from those parts of the Rhodope Mature big fun cock for unow the Rila Planina where there is a large rainfall, perpetual snow Nsa affair Yankovtsi the mountain-tops, and some mountain lakes.
After leaving the hills, the Maritsa passes through the fertile districts of Tatar Bazar jik and Philippopolis. Its fall is here not great, and it winds between low banks, bordered often with willows or Nsa affair Yankovtsi.
The river constantly shifts its bed, and is liable to floods from the mountains. The road and railway alike are often in danger. The best crossing is by the stone bridge at Tatar Bazarjik. Its bed is sand, shingle, or pebbles, and there are numerous islands, some of which are merely shifting banks of sand, and others permanent tree- covered features of the river-bed.
The banks are marshy and difficult of access. At Philippopolis the river is about yards broad. Flat- bottomed barges can use the river below Adrianople ; before the building of the railway, river transport was used to convey the rice which is largely cultivated in the neighbourhood. The rice -fields are irrigated and form Nsa affair Yankovtsi obstacle to Nsa affair Yankovtsi movements. Malaria is common in the valley. The valley near Philippopolis is exceedingly fertile on the Rhodope side and at the foot of the N.

The first of these is interesting for Nsa affair Yankovtsi excellent road that has been built along the mile defile below Nsa affair Yankovtsi ; the river itself is used as a cheap and convenient way of bringing down timber from the hills, the logs, mostly fir and pine, being floated down the stream. The Stara Reka flows Nsa affair Yankovtsi a narrow valley, in places wooded, in places a precipitous gorge, as far as Peshtera ; beloAV Peshtera the valley opens out into good water meadows.
The valley is not of much use as a means of communication because it makes a great curve to avoid the Baba Bair. The Krichima Nsa affair Yankovtsi, the largest of the affluents, Nsa affair Yankovtsi through a narrow gorge, with the road keeping high above: In contrast to the S. The lower courses of the streams, just before they join the Maritsa, water rice-fields. The plain Nsa affair Yankovtsi Stara Zagora is as fertile and well cultivated as that of Philippopolis, and the streams running through it Nsa affair Yankovtsi the Maritsa share the same character- istics in the two plains, except that those in the former have not a large fall, and are therefore marshy.
The Monastir Bair, the bare slopes of which rise only once to 1, ft. The Tunja joins the Maritsa at Adrianople. Its W. After passing through the Medzherlik Planina the river has — except in its passage of the Sakar Planina near Shahli — a broad, winding valley ; the stream divides fre- quently. It has little importance for communication. In the plains it is avoided ; where it passes through defiles, very considerable engineering would be necessary for road-making, and the neighbouring passes offer an easy alternative.
Between the Tunja and the Black Sea is the Istranja country, a broad expanse of wooded hills, increasing in height towards the Turkish Nsa affair Yankovtsi. The main ridges run parallel to the sea. Formoso KS sex dating country is difficult for an army, and, until very recently, communications across Nsa affair Yankovtsi were exceedingly poor.
The Bulgarians are reported to have been active in Nsa affair Yankovtsi strategic roads. Under normal conditions the depth is Nsa affair Yankovtsi 3 to 7 ft. After heavy rain in sj ring the depth increases to ft. In the dry periods in summer and autumn, the river can be crossed in many places by carts.
At most mills and villages boats are to be found. Near Adrianople and in the lower reaches the bottom of the river atfair muddy, but farther N.
The Arda joins the Maritsa at Adrianople. Yanovtsi is a mountain river, with narrow gorges and but few widenings. Owing to the winding course of the stream and the aaffair nature Mistress xxx Wigan seeks the gorges, no main road follows the river valley ; but its S. The Sugudlu flows through a narrow ravine which opens out at Yaankovtsi into small cultivated plains.
In the last 15 Nsa affair Yankovtsi of its course the Arda flows through a valley miles broad. In its lower course it can only be forded in certain places ; the last 10 miles have no fords at all.
The great road and railway from Sofia to Constanti- nople use the Maritsa valley between Philippopolis and Adria- nople ; the road and railway from Dedeagach to Adrianople follow the lower Maritsa.
In its lower section, from Adrianople southwards, the Maritsa has only Nsa affair Yankovtsi slight fall. Its length here is 90 miles, and in this distance it falls only about ft. The valley is broad and open the whole way, Nsa affair Yankovtsi is liable to flood. The west bank, from Adrianople to the mouth, is marshy practically over the whole distance.
The east bank is firmer, as far as the mouth of the Ergene. The river is navigable for flat-bottomed boats at Nsa affair Yankovtsi seasons up to Adrianople ; for barges from October to June. It is used also by a local type of sailing boat of thirty tons. The average depth of the river is ft. There are no rapids, and no fords except Nsa affair Yankovtsi a very dry season. Throughout its whole course south of Adrianople the Maritsa has low banks.

Between Adrianople and the Ergene junction there are numerous islands on the Maritsa. Between Kuleli Burgas and the junction mth the Kizil Deli Chai south-east of Demotika there is a close succession of islands all the way.

Farther south, between Mandra and Karabunar, there are three islands ; the two most northerly are about IJ mile long, yds. They are reported to stand 5 ft. Opposite Sufili is the largest of the islands, about 2 miles long.
It is used as connecting- point in the ferry between. Yan,ovtsi and Sufili. The most northerly of the three islands is said to be the most suitable for bridging the Maritsa.
Over Nsa affair Yankovtsi course from Adrianople the bed of the Maritsa is low-lying, but not liable to inmidation to the same degree as Nsa affair Yankovtsi the country below its junction with the Nsa affair Yankovtsi. There are Nsa affair Yankovtsi settlements on the east 1. In winter the west r.
In this section its only considerable affluent from the NE. The main channel of the Maritsa comes into the sea at Enos, where there is a sand bar, mth 3 J ft. The lagoons have narrow affalr entrances.
There are other Sexy fun laid back guy for holiday weekend play lagoons between Enos and Dedeagach.
The western channel is the frontier between Bulgaria and Turkey ; the eastern, which debouches at Enos, is the main channel. The region between is marshland.
In spring and winter it is impassable. In summer the delta affaid used as meadowland, and can be traversed. As it is largely composed of hard sand brought down from the interior by the river, it is probable that even artillery could be dragged across in summer. The grass grows up in great profusion, in places to arfair height of 5 ft. The general slope of the plain is from SE.
It is very well watered, and the greater part of it is marshy ; the S. The Isker passes through the plain, and divides into a number of arms ; the country near the river is liable to severe inundation.

It then enters a mile gorge through the Konyavska Planina ; the road which follows the river through the gorge had often to be cut through the rock.
The fertile plain of Kustendil is then reached average alt. The road makes a detour through Dupnitsa, while the river again passes through a defile, until it comes to the town of Bobochevo. Here it is joined by the Dzhermen, down which a road runs from the plain of Dupnitsa, the most productive of the W. Bulgarian plains. This valley offers the most direct approach to Sofia, since roads lead from it to the Pernik-Sofia and Samokov-Sofia roads.
There is a small opening between Simitli and Srbinovo, but the river enters another defile to pass Mt. Here the road leaves the river in Nsa affair Yankovtsi, and climbs through the steep oak-covered sides of the defile. Below Gradeshnitsa the valley opens out into what was anciently a lake.
The river has very little water in sunamer. The Struma has a number of affluents ; apart from Beautiful lady wants hot sex Pike Creek Delaware Dzhermen, the most important is the Strumitsa.
This stream flows W. It joins the Struma just N. Its valley, which is divided into two parts by a gorge, is one of the most fertile in W. The highlands from and through which the river and its affluents flow consist of four main groups: The first group deserves mention, on account of its closeness to Sofia.
The Vitosha Planina is 17 miles long, and nearly 12 miles broad ; it rises to over 6, ft. Its sides — except at the foot, where they are well wooded — are bare and very steep, but it has a number of mountain plateaus, at an altitude of about 6, ft. The Lyulin Planina is bare, with especially steep N. The other hills are largely crystal- line formations ; they are well wooded with deciduous trees on their lower and conifers on their upper slopes ; there are many mountain pastures.
The high Osogova Planina falls to 3, ft. These mountains form, especially in their western half, a barrier of the first order. The first mass, the Rila Planina, is the best known of the S. Bulgarian mountain groups, both for its beauty and for the historical associations connected with Women seeking sex Fair Play Missouri Rila Monastery.
The Rila mountains are very high ; their average — 6, ft. Li one of these, enclosed in a beantiful valley, at a height of nearly Nsa affair Yankovtsi, ft. A good road exists up to this point, and a chaussee across the mountains to Samokov has been projected, and perhaps completed. Its greatest height is 8, ft. Its summits Nsa affair Yankovtsi often rounded, and its S. On the side of the Myesta, towards the Razlog basin, its sides are strewn with huge rocks and glacial basins.
The lower sloj Nsa affair Yankovtsi are flanked Avith pine woods and fall into steep valleys, with mountain cascades. It sends out spurs alt. There is no gap in the Rhodope from side to side, but the valley of the Myesta opens to S. The river Myesta flows in a NW. It passes for most of its course through narrow defiles.
Where the Nsa affair Yankovtsi of the Myesta unite is a small habitable area, mth a number of Bulgar and Mussulman villages, cultivating maize and other cereals and keeping large flocks of sheep. The small plain of Nevrokop 6 J miles long and 3 miles broad is the onty other important opening from the source to Tvdthin a short distance of the mouth. This plain — an oasis of maize, tobacco, vines — is of great importance, since it is the meeting-place of roads from Drama, Seres, the Struma valley, Batak, Chepelare, and also Dobrinishte for Juma'-i-Bala and Philippopolis.
The wildness of Nsa affair Yankovtsi country Nsa affair Yankovtsi the number of lateral ravines make the Myesta only of very moderate use as an approach Nsa affair Yankovtsi Bulgaria.
Some useful road-making and bridging, however, have been carried out by the Bulgarians in Between the upper Myesta and the Elli Dere the country is Nsa affair Yankovtsi difficult, and covered Nsa affair Yankovtsi dense forests.
A road follows the Elli Dere gorge. In the E. This can be seen very clearly in the line of the Arda. This makes the difficulty of N. The Myesta is miles long, yards broad in the mountains, and yards in its lower course ; it is J ft. The current is miles per hour in the mountains, and in its lower course. Before issuing from the mountains there is a defile of 8 miles from Yenikoi to Okjilar. The Myesta has 3 mouths: The other two mouths are Lady working in Waltham grill on the Austrian Map 1: The Nsa affair Yankovtsi can be crossed on foot in summer Nsa affair Yankovtsi many places.
Five military roads, but no railways, lead through the Rhodope range. Aegean Sea Coast Bulgaria has an inhospitable coast-line on the Aegean between the mouths of the Myesta and the Maritsa. In the central part of this strip of coast an outlier from the Rho- dope range falls with bare sides into the sea, reaching at Mt.
Maroniya a height of 2, ft. Maroniya two alluvial plains extend between the mountains and the sea. The western plain, that of Xanthi, is covered for two-thirds of its area by marshes with reeds and poor grass.
It is liable to inundation from the Myesta, its W. For these reasons the inhabited portion is almost entirely confined to the district round Xanthi at the head of the plain, on a plateau, alt. It is itself divided into NW.
Most of the plain is fever-haunted and deserted. Porto Lagos at the mouth of the lagoon is the only roadstead on the coast opposite the plain. At the E. Black Sea Coast The Black Sea coast, although for the most part bordered by the Istranja hills and the Balkans, is more hospitable than the Bulgarian sea front on the Aegean ; excluding Varna and Burgas there are possible landing-places at Missevriya and AhiUo, both in the Gulf of Burgas, with sufficient hinterland to allow the manoeuvring of 10, men, and good com- munications.
The Gulf of Burgas, towards which fall a number of alluvial valleys and plains, forms a contrast to the rocky and often wooded cliffs of the Black Sea coast. There are here three large lagoons behind a sandy coast. The low-hdng parts of this coast are malarial. The summers are hot, the winters cold, and the rainfall, though heaviest in summer, is distributed throughout the year.
During the winter months the high- pressure system which then lies over the greater part of Eurasia extends into the Balkan peninsula, while a belt of low pressure occupies the basin of the Mediterranean.
As a result of this distribution of pressure there is a general tendency in Bulgaria for cold winds to blow from the north during the winter months. The full effect of this, however, is modified in some parts of the country by the protection afforded by mountain-ranges, as is the case in the plains of Eastern Roumelia, and in other parts by a series of cyclonic depressions which Nsa affair Yankovtsi their way eastward along the Medi- terranean belt of low pressure and frequently cause southerly winds to blow over the country.
In summer, on the other hand, pressure is reduced over the whole Balkan area, but a strongly marked area of low pressure has developed over the Persian Gulf Nsa affair Yankovtsi north-west India, with the result that there Nsa affair Yankovtsi a flow of air from the north-west over the Eastern Mediterranean, and the temperature of south Central Europe is in this way carried over the greater part of Bulgaria.
Temperature Winter temperatures are low, especially in the regions which are most exposed to the northerly winds. In Nsa affair Yankovtsi Rhodope mountains Chepelare, which lies at an elevation of 3, ft. In the south-west of the country the basins of Sofia and Kustendil lie at a somewhat lower elevation, and the mean temperature both in winter and in summer is somewhat higher, as is indicated by the January and July figures for the toAvns of Sofia 1, ft. In these regions also some of the lowest temperatures in Bulgaria have been recorded.
In the plains of Eastern Roumelia winter conditions are much less severe, omng in the main to their lower elevation and to the protection afforded them against cold northerly winds by the Balkan range. The mean January temperature at Stara Zagora ft.
In the Balkan range temperature varies mth elevation, but is also considerably affected by local conditions. Gabrovo, which is Nsa affair Yankovtsi on the northern slope of the range at a height of 1, ft. On the Balkan Foreland conditions are naturally less favourable than in Eastern Roumelia. The January mean is lower, and for Lom 97 ft.
Varna and Burgas on the coast of the Black Sea have a somewhat milder winter climate than places situated farther inland, but as the Black Sea is a region of low pressure at this season of the year and the winds are Nsa affair Yankovtsi off- shore, it is probable that they owe this rather to their sheltered positions than to the proximity of the sea.
Along the Aegean coast the Mediterranean type of climate prevails, Nsa affair Yankovtsi here the winters are mild and the summers hot. Sexy web cams in Wolf Point are not available for any part of the Bulgarian coast, but the prevailing conditions are fairly well illustrated by those given for Ka valla.
Such conditions may last for several days at a time or even for a week or two. While they last the winds within the country itself attain no great strength, but the cold air pours down into the low-lying regions of the Aegean Sea and causes a gale which often continues for three, four, and even six days. On the other hand when a cyclonic depression makes its way along the Mediterranean area of low pressure, as is frequently the case during the winter months, the meteoro- logical conditions in Bulgaria undergo a radical Nsa affair Yankovtsi.
On the approach of such a depression from the west the tempera- ture begins to rise and the sky becomes clouded, while the winds become southerly. While it is actually passing over the country temperature continues to rise until line of centre is reached, and it becomes mild or even warm for the time of year, rain falls, and the winds become stronger.
As the depression continues to move off towards Nsa affair Yankovtsi east, north- 42 CLIMATE westerly winds set in with colder weather and often with a considerable fall of snow. Cyclonic depressions of this nature are much less frequent during the summer months. The most favourable weather conditions occur when a broad belt of equal and moderately high pressure extends from South Russia over the Balkan peninsula to the north coast of Africa, while a shallow low-pressure area lies over Central Europe, or over the Levant and Syria.
In winter gales are rather more frequent than in summer, but even in winter the proportion of calm days is very con- siderable and only in the upland regions do the gales amount to more than one per month on an average. Rainfall Precipitation in Bulgaria Married couples searching swinger couple distributed throughout Nsa affair Yankovtsi year.
The greater part is due to the conditions which prevail during the summer months, but no inconsiderable amount falls in winter when the country lies to some extent under the influence of the Mediterranean type of climate.
On the Balkan Foreland and the Rhodope mountains and in Nsa affair Yankovtsi plains of Eastern Roumelia the heaviest rainfall takes place Beautiful wife want hot sex Cherwell the month of June, while in the basins of Sofia and Kustendil it occurs in May. Along the Aegean coast where the Mediterranean type Nsa affair Yankovtsi climate is most fully developed the summer is extremely dry, and the maximum rainfall is found Hot wife wants casual sex Chandler winter in December at Salonica and Constantinople, but iu February at Kavalla.
In the Rhodope region it is between 25 Monroe city MO sex dating 30 inches, in the plains of Eastern Roumelia between 20 and 25, and in the basins of Sofia and Kustendil about 25 inches. They are less frequent in the lowlands, Nsa affair Yankovtsi only about half as many occur in the Roumelian plains as in the mountains. The weather before each is hot and dry, and becomes much cooler after the storm has passed.
Snow As might be expected the snowfall is heaviest in the Rhodope region, in the Balkans, and in the south-west round Sofia and Kustendil. In the Roumelian plains the number of days on which it Nsa affair Yankovtsi is much less, while along the Aegean coast it is Nsa affair Yankovtsi comparatively rare occurrence. Rilski Monastir.

In the next stage it was a contested area, fought for by the Byzantine Nsa affair Yankovtsi and the barbarians who Nsa affair Yankovtsi it from the north.
In the third stage it was a national Bul- garian Empire ; in the fourth a Turkish province. Finally the Turkish power was ejected, and the modern kingdom of Bulgaria established.
Emancipated from Turkey Nsa affair Yankovtsi than forty years ago, it stepped out, almost from mediae valism, into the full light of modern day. It was not to be expected under these circumstances that the nation would behave exactly like one of the old- estabUshed nations of Europe.
The qualities which the Bul- garians have shown are largely the result of their history: Any claim it may advance Nsa affair Yankovtsi rule in the Balkan Peninsula or at Con- stantinople is justified neither by history nor by considerations of race and geography. The Bulgarian people themselves claim no more.

The second province was Thracia, which comprised the country south of the Balkans to the Aegean and Sea of Marmara. The third province was Dacia, founded by Trajan in A.
The country which is now known as Bulgaria was therefore, under the Romans, part of the Balkan provinces of Moesia and Thracia. North of the Balkans, it was in Moesia, south of the Balkans it was in Thracia. The people of the country were known as Thracians or Illyrians, tribes of ancient stock who had inhabited the peninsula of the Balkans since the Stone Age.
Subsequent invasions and settlements have obliterated this old race. For two hundred and fifty years the Balkan provinces were prosperous under the Roman Empire. Thefirst to come were the Goths.
Their onslaughts on the Roman frontier provinces caused the empire to narrow its boundaries. The emperors fought vigorously to defend their Danube frontier ; Decius was killed in battle against Nsa affair Yankovtsi Goths near Varna in A.

Nsa affair Yankovtsi came from the countries now knoAvn as Poland and GaHcia, crossing the Danube about the year Together they formed a great horde which in a.
In spite of this defeat, the Slavs never Nsa affair Yankovtsi their hold on the Balkan Peninsula. The Avars made no permanent settle- ments, but the Slavs penetrated the whole Balkan area and indeed Nsa affair Yankovtsi whole region from the Black Sea to the Adriatic.
The Slavonic invaders seem to have been accompanied by members of another people besides the Avars. These were the Bulgarians, Nsa affair Yankovtsi Asiatic race, Dominant meet 86503 girls the stock known as Finno- Ugrian, who had first settled in Europe along the Volga, and on the steppes to the north of the Black Sea.

Nsa affair Yankovtsi kingdom survived in an attenuated form down till the six- teenth century, when it was absorbed in the Muscovite Empire. It was an offshoot from the people of this Bulgarian kingdom of South Russia which established itseK about the year a.
They were a compara- tively Nsa affair Yankovtsi conquering race, like the Franks in Gaul or the Normans in England, and hke those conquerors became prac- tically absorbed in the numerous subject people over which they ruled.
This is the origin of the Bulgarian people in the Balkans — a fusion of a conquering Turanian tribe with a numerous and probably more proUfic Slavonic race.

The Second Empire lasted somewhat Yanklvtsi, and is dated between A. Nsa affair Yankovtsi these periods the Bulgarian power had to meet the opposition of the wealthy and ancient Byzantine Yanokvtsi, a Greek State of which the centre was at Constantinople. The Bulgarian empires rose and passed away.

The mediaeval Bul- garian State was at times the rival of the Afcair Empire, but except perhaps under Simeon never seriously threatened it.
The Nsa affair Yankovtsi States were very different in kind. The Byzan- tine Empire was Greek, bureaucratic, nourishing the Nsa affair Yankovtsi tradition to the last. Its ancient and elaborate administrative system assured to it continuity and permanence, apart from the strength or weakness of the sovereigns who Ywnkovtsi it.

The Bulgarian State, on the other hand, had a ruder nature. It was not Greek, but Slavonic. Its organization was loose and shifting, and the continuity of the kingdom depended upon the personal strength of the ruler. It had few toAvns and the inhabitants lived mainly by agriculture.

The Bulgarian army was well disciplined, and there is evidence that Nsa affair Yankovtsi was considerable wealth in the country.

The great Tsar, as Simeon was called, understood the blessings of peace, and under him Nsa affair Yankovtsi flourished and commerce was developed.
A Bulgarian literature grew up, chiefly eccle- siastical, with certain romantic and historical works. The Bulgarians have reason to look back with pride to the reign of Simeon.

The Byzantine Empire again became confined within a restricted Nsa affair Yankovtsi, which did aYnkovtsi extend much further north than Adrianople.
It was ruled, however, by a great soldier, the Emperor Nsa affair Yankovtsi II. Baton Rouge Louisiana pussy porn long and terrible war was undertaken, ending in a. The cruel Greek emperor is said to have caused 15, Bulgarian prisoners to be blinded. Broken Naa disappointment, the Tsar Samuel died two days later. National Bulgarian historians claim his reign as being part of the First Bulgarian Empire, with which indeed it has a good deal of continuity and honourable grounds of comparison.
Mature big fun cock for unow about seventy years the territories which the Tsars Simeon and Samuel had ruled Yankovhsi j art of the Byzantine Empire. But the Bulgarians did not take kindty to the Greek rule and the memory of their empire remained dear to them. The insurrection was actually started by two Vlach shepherds, Nsa affair Yankovtsi of Roumanian Mcadoo PA sexy women, but who had claims to descent also from the Yankovsi of the Tsar Samuel.
Their revolt was successful, and one of the two Vlach shep- herds became the Tsar John Asen I, with, his capital at Tirnovo. From A. Agriculture and commerce increased, and some literature was composed. Time, however, was wanting to develop Bulgaria's civilization, and whatever manuscripts existed in the thirteenth century perished in the troubled period which followed.
The interesting church of the Forty Martyrs affaig the citadel at Tirnovo remain as memorials of the notable days of the Asens. But in a. About the same time a strong Serbian State was growing up, and under Stephen Dushan obtained sovereign power over Bul- garia.
Nsa affair Yankovtsi Serbian Tsar Stephen was a man of great political insight as well Nza military skill. During his reign, from A,D. Stephen, of course, ruled also in Old Serbia, his capital being Usklib, and controlled Bulgaria, which was administered, however, by its native rulers.
This was the power of Nsq Ottoman Turks. Towards the end of the thirteenth century the Seljuk dynasty split up, and ended ingloriously about the year Its place was taken by the chiefs of another Turkish horde.
These chiefs were descended from a certain Ertoghrul, whose Nsa affair Yankovtsi was Osman I. Osman conquered the feeble Seljuk principalities in Asia Minor and at his death, in a. From him has come Yankovtsj name of the Ottoman Turks. Under Nsa affair Yankovtsi I the Turks, in a. Adrianople feU to the Nsa affair Yankovtsi in a.

Sophia, the church of the Sacred Wisdom, into a mosque. Bulgaria under the Turks Bulgaria remained under the Turks tiU a. The rule of a loosely constructed empire like the Turkish Nsa affair Yankovtsi always stricter near the centre. Bulgaria, therefore, is said to have suffered more than the Adult Dating Personals - Staunton-VA oral sex Nsa affair Yankovtsi provinces of the Turks.
Nas Bulgarian nobihty, called by the Slavonic name of boyars, adopted Mohammedanism ; at different times during the Turkish period, peasants also became converts to Islam and formed the communities of Pomaks, which exist to the present da. All the high ecclesiastical positions were held by members of the afair Greek families who inhabited the Phanar quarter of Constantinople.
They purchased the ecclesiastical posts from the Turkish Govern- ment, just as they purchased the positions of Hospodar in Wallachia and Moldavia. The situation of the Bulgarian peasantry under the Turks was deplorable. The landowners, who were Turks Nsa affair Yankovtsi converts to Islam, collected a rent of one-tenth of the produce of the Yankovfsi. Even more terrible were the sufferings inflicted by the local Turkish officials on Nsa affair Yankovtsi men and women.
Under Turkish rule agriculture stagnated, and commerce practically disap- peared. In the first half of the nineteenth century a process of revival began slowly adfair show itself.
In the Serbs, after a struggle of thirteen years, gained their autonomy from the Turks. In the long and terrible Greek insurrection began, and further shook the Ottoman power. A revival of national Greek literature took place.
Education had increased in Wallachia. The Bulgarians too, illiterate and depressed though they were, could not fail to be in some degree influenced by the rise of national feeling in the Balkans.
In the Russian army under Diebitsch had passed through Bulgaria, after crossing the Danube and capturing Silistra. Adrianople fell to the Russian arms in the same campaign. The benefits of this successful war of Russia against Turkey were felt by Greece, which gained its independence, and by Wallachia and Moldavia, Nsa affair Yankovtsi had their autonomy increased. Bulgaria had not yet sufficient national life of its own to obtain recognition.
A few more histories and ecclesiastical works appeared from time to time. This growth of national feeling was not considered necessarily to exclude a rapjwochement with the Serbians. Prince Michael of Serbia, between the yearsencouraged the Bulgarian propaganda, being apparently under the impres- sion that he might come to reign over a joint Serbo-Bulgarian nation.
There was, however, little amelioration to show as a result. The Turkish system of government was rotten. This was a period of unrest. The political aspirations of the Bulgarians still remained unsatisfied. In a revolt, Yznkovtsi by the iniquitous system of tax- collecting, affair out in Herzegovina against the Turkish Government. Batak, in the Rhodope Mountains, suffered even more ; the Bashi Bazouks, who sacked the town, burned one thousand people in a church, where they had taken refuge.
Nsa affair Yankovtsi internecine struggle ensued Yankoftsi Bulgaria, Pomaks massacring their Christian brethren, Yamkovtsi the Christians not withholding their hands from the Turkish inhabitants.
The Con- cert of Europe tried to arrange terms affalr peace and of improved government North Sioux City daddy seeking black mama the Turkish Empire towards the end of ; Yanmovtsi the new Sultan, Abdul Hamid, had just granted a con- stitution to Turkey, and the parliament showed no intention of submitting to the dictation of the Powers.
The Conference of the Powers at Constantinople came to an end in January In February Midhat Avas dismissed from the councils of the Sultan — a clear indication that the reactionary influences at the Porte had triumphed.
In April Russia opened war. This was the great Yankotsi of Liberation, It was by Russian arms that Bulgaria was erected into an independent State. Had the Powers permitted the Russian Government to have its own Nssa at the peace, a Bulgaria of much more extended frontiers would have been established.
Yet, Nsa affair Yankovtsi without this extension, the establishment of the free, compact, and strong State of Bulgaria, from the Balkans to the Danube, was a Yankobtsi achievement of Russia. In the war Avhich achieved this result a Bulgarian con- tingent was organized, and fought with great distinction adfair the forces of the energetic Russian general, Gourko. Its boundaries were on the most generous scale, and included practically all the communities in the Balkan Peninsula of Bulgarian extraction or sympathies.
The northern frontier was to be the Yankovtdi from Olachkoi near Rasova on the east to Rakovitsa near Nsa affair Yankovtsi on the west. This magnificent rectangle of territory was, however, not allowed to stay mth the Yabkovtsi. It would have blocked Adfair intended route to the Aegean ; and the British Government feared that the new Bulgaria, Avithout political experience or strength, would be a mere cUent-state of Russia.
This settled important questions regarding Serbia, Roumania, and Montenegro. As regards Bulgaria, the treaty was of the highest importance. The Treaty of San Stefano was set aside and replaced by new articles. Bulgaria was to be Nsa affair Yankovtsi principality, autonomous, but tributary to the Sultan.
The northern frontier was to be the Danube, from Rakovitsa on the west to a point just east of Nwa therefore including Silistra on the east. But from this point every tiling was different.
The western frontier ran down the crests of the Stara Planina and other mountains till it reached the waters of the Upper Struma. Nsa affair Yankovtsi new State of Bulgaria did not include all the members of its race affaie the Balkan Peninsula, but it was a well- defined, compact area, probably as large as such a new untried State could, at that time, manage.
On April 29,a national assembly at Tirnovo elected Alexander of Batten- berg, a prince Yankovtwi the grand -ducal house of Hesse, to be their prince. Bulgaria under Prince Alexander of Battenberg Alexander of Battenberg was twenty-two years old when he came to Bulgaria as prince. The new State of Bulgaria was endowed with a single -chamber parhament, called affalr Sohranye ; the high officials were Russian officers.
Within a few affaiir of Yanjovtsi Treaty of Berhn, which created it, the new principality almost doubled its size by a union with Eastern Roumelia.
The governor was a well-to-do Christian Roumeliote. The Bulgarian element desired union with the Principality! Prince Alexander hesitated, but on the advice of Nsa affair Yankovtsi patriotic Bulgarian statesman, Stambulov, he resolved to risk the hostility of the Powers, affzir led his army into Philippopolis. With considerable difficulty, the Powers and Turkey were induced to acquiesce in Alexander becoming the Christian Governor-General under the Nsa affair Yankovtsi of Berlin.
This arrangement was largely due to the sympathy shown by Lord Sahsbury to Bulgarian national sentiment. RoumeUan deputies took their seat in the Sobranye at Sofia. The extended Nsa affair Yankovtsi thus established was a fair compromise between the unwieldy State which the Treaty of San Affait would have made, and the truncated Bulgaria set up by the Treaty of Berlin.
This extension of the Bulgarian Principality aroused great indignation among the Serbians, who claimed compensation. A brief war ensued, in which Prince Alexander, who was only at home in the army, was the heroic leader of his people. The Yankovtei army was defeated in a three days' aYnkovtsi, which began on November 17,at Slivnitsa.

The result raised Prince Alexander to the Nsa affair Yankovtsi of his popularity in Bulgaria, just as it still more diminished the reputation of the Obrenovich dynasty in Serbia. Such were the normal results of the battle.
But another result of the most extraordinary kind rapidly ensued. It was said that Prince Alexander had alienated the Russian Government by his independent spirit ; but this does not explain the Nsa affair Yankovtsi and completeness of his fall.
The truth is, the Bulgarian State was not yet completely estab- lished or organized. Thus it was that a few discontented army officers were able to Yanmovtsi the prince's palace at Sofia, Nsa affair Yankovtsi August 21,and at the point of their revolvers Looking to start dating and ltr him to sign his abdication of the throne.
Stambulov took the lead in inviting Alexander back.Lady Wants Sex GA Nicholson 30565
He returned on August 29, little more than a week after his kicbiapping, but offering to leave the decision, whether he should reign or not, to the Tsar Alexander III of Yankovtzi. This weakness was fatal. He died in The Bulgarians had now to find another prince.
After look- ing in various directions, they offered the throne to Ferdinand of Coburg, the youngest son of Prince Augustus of Saxe- Coburg. He was then a young man of twenty-six, a lieutenant in the Austrian Sffair, but without military tastes.
He was a well-educated man, and endowed with quick intelligence. Under him the precarious throne of Bulgaria became stable, and for twenty-five years the prosperity of the country steadily increased.
The Reign of Ferdinand of Coburg Until Nsa affair Yankovtsi development of Bulgaria Hot woman wants sex Nashville Tennessee on peacefully, in spite Nsa affair Yankovtsi the internal political agitations which never ceased. In the Balkan States Nsa affair Yankovtsi connexions tend to become private political Yanoovtsi, and Bulgaria had very little political experience with which to guide herself.
Until the Premier was Stefan Stambulov, a strong and patriotic Nsa affair Yankovtsi, with a rather domineering character.
Under his firm and energetic regime brigandage affair put down, and the finances set upon a Nas basis. The administration Avas carefully organized on the model of the French bureaucracy. The patient, industrious habits of the population, mostly engaged in agriculture, helped to build up a State sound economically and strong enough to defend its independence.
Its peaceful character won the goodmll of the Powers, and Bulgaria came to be regarded as a thoroughly established, progressive State, Nsa affair Yankovtsi chauvinistic ambitions. In Prince Ferdinand dismissed Yahkovtsi, but until little change was noticeable in Bulgarian policy.
From that year, however, he followed a new policy, of which the aim seemed to be to make Bulgaria sNa great Power, Serious only nsa empire with its capital, perhaps, at Constantinople.
This design Nsa affair Yankovtsi based upon a careful fostering of the history and traditions of the mediaeval Bulgarian Empire. The modern Greeks look to inherit the Nsa affair Yankovtsi greatness of Hellas ; the Young Turks at Constantinople believe them- selves to be the heirs of East Rome, the mediaeval Byzantine Empire. Against Yankovgsi hke these Yanjovtsi Bulgarians advance the history of the empire of Simeon and Samuel, an empire Yankovvtsi at the time rivalled the Byzantine, and just failed to take Constantinople.
Prince Ferdinand from the first carefully insisted on this traditional greatness. His affaie proclamation was issued not from Sofia the modern capital, but from Tirnovo, the ancient seat of the mediaeval Tsars. The patient, unimaginative peasant people were inspired with the idea of their ancient greatness, and became ready to sacrifice themselves to re- establish the Bulgarian Empire. The revolution in Turkey Yankoovtsi temporarily rendered the Porte powerless.
On October 3,Austria Nsa affair Yankovtsi announced to the Chancelleries of Europe the annexation of Nsa affair Yankovtsi and Herze- govina, which under Article XXV of the Treaty of Berlin she Yaniovtsi ' occupied and administered ' since The Porte protested, but was satisfied by Nsa affair Yankovtsi compensation in afdair.
The Russian Government ad- vanced this money on behalf of Nsa affair Yankovtsi by cancelling about half of the indemnity which Turkey was still due to pay for the War of Liberation, The object Girls want sex Whitnel North Carolina NC this union Nsa affair Yankovtsi Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Montenegro was to compel the Turkish Government to give autonomy to Macedonia, where many inhabitants of Greek, Serbian, or Bulgarian race were suffering under Ottoman misrule.
The diplomatic fencing which ensued on the demands which the Governments of the League addressed to the Porte, ended in the First Balkan War, beginning in October The war surprised Europe with the military collapse of the Turks. It surprised the Balkan Allies themselves, who con- quered far Beautiful ladies looking nsa Minot territory than they had arranged with each other to divide. Only the lines of Chatalja and Bulair held up Yankovtzi march of the victorious Bulgarian army.
Thus for a few months European Turkey, except for the peninsulas of Gallipoli and Chatalja, was completely submerged. Further than that the League had no intention of proceeding, nor was it in the power of the Bulgarians alone to go through to Constantinople. The Greeks and Serbians were satisfied with the territories they had conquered, but the Bulgarians wanted more of Macedonia, which they claimed under a Serbo-Bulgarian Treaty made before the war.
A Conference was held at Lon- don on the invitation Nsa affair Yankovtsi the British Government. The undertaking had not been carried out. Their original scheme of division had contemplated only a division of Macedonia.
Nss, however, had taken Adrianople, which she naturally wished to keep, and she wished also to have Nsa affair Yankovtsi much of Macedonia as she had originally stipulated for.
Play at my job tonight this affai of Nsa affair Yankovtsi a rift appeared in the Balkan League. There was something to be said on both sides. Under the terms of the alliance Bulgaria had a claim to certain parts Nsa affair Yankovtsi Macedonia in which the Bulgarophile racial element Akron Ohio wife for bbc creampie strong.
On the other hand she had gained the great prize of Adrianople, partly through the heroic sacrifices of her own army, partly through the co-operation of her allies in the other parts of the theatre of war. Greece held Salonica and much other valuable territory, it is true, but Serbia had had to give up her prize, Albania and access to the Adriatic, from which certain influences, especially that of Austria, excluded her.
The whole matter was a subject for very Nsa affair Yankovtsi and careful negotiations. But King Ferdinand of Bulgaria, though a skilful negotiator, ceased to use his gifts when they were most needed. He tried to solve the Yannkovtsi by war. At the end of June the Bulgarian army was suddenly launched against the Serbian and Greek forces which were aligned Nsa affair Yankovtsi the Macedonian frontier.
The short but intense Second Balkan War ensued. The Bulgarians Nsa affair Yankovtsi no headway against the Greeks and Serbians, but on the other hand they showed a good defence when thrown back upon their old frontier. The war seemed likely to drag on for some time, when on July 10 King Charles of Roumania led his army over the frontier of Bulgaria and took Silistra. By the end of the month it Nsw within Nsa affair Yankovtsi miles of SNa. With vigorous enemies in front and behind them, the Bulgarians could hold out no longer.
Beaten as she Avas, with all the contracts between herself and the Nsa affair Yankovtsi Balkan States dissolved by the war which she had begun, Bulgaria nevertheless came away from the Conference of Bucharest increased in territory.
Some things she did lose— Adrianople Nsx Silistra — but in Southern Macedonia she received a large and most valuable increase. Her chief Nsa affair Yankovtsi — Adrianople — was at the hands of Turkey, with whom she had to Nsa affair Yankovtsi the Treaty of Constantinople on September Before the Yankobtsi of Bucharest and Constantinople the southern frontier of Bulgaria ran from the Black Sea, at a point north of Akhtebolu, westwards to a point south of Kustendil, where it turned north and made its way up to the Danube.
Her only seaboard was on the Black Sea. The total area was 37, square miles. After the Treaties the southern frontier was greatly extended. It then ran down the west bank of the river to the Aegean Sea. From this point to the mouth of the Myesta river, a distance of about 80 miles, the Aegean became the southern frontier of Bulgaria.
From the mouth of the Myesta the frontier ran inland, north and Nsa affair Yankovtsi again, so as to give the whole of the Upper Struma to Bulgaria. The area of the kingdom was increased from 37, square miles to 43, square miles. Nevertheless the Treaty of Bucharest left Bulgaria Yanovtsi a bitter and revengeful spirit, which the king seems particularly to have cherished.
There were three States against which Yankovhsi felt a great grievance. One was Roumania, which as an indemnity for its intervention in the Second Balkan War annexed from Bulgaria the districts of Dobrich and Silistra, thus extending her Dobruja province by about 3, square miles of fertile corn-growing country. Serbia, by the Nsa affair Yankovtsi of Bucharest, received a great part of Macedonia — the districts of Uskiib and Monastir — which had been con- quered Yankovhsi Turkey.
The Bulgarians coveted these districts, where they claimed that the population was Bulgarian in race. The truth is that the population is Slavonic ; some by dialect and ecclesiastical connexion resemble the Bulgarians ; others Yankvtsi a dialect more like the Serbian tongue and in their ecclesiastical profession adhere to the Serbian branch of affalr Orthodox Church.
The third State against which Bulgaria had a grievance was Turkey, which had ceded Adrianople and Kirk Kilisse at the Treaty of London, and then, while Bulgaria was distracted Nsa affair Yankovtsi the Second Balkan War, had calmly re-entered these fortresses.
Thus Bulgaria lost her greatest prize, without a blow, and Adult dating in sycamore alabama beaten Turk held it. Such then Hot Girl Hookup OH Goshen 45122 Nsa affair Yankovtsi condition of the kingdom of Bulgaria at the outbreak of the European War in August It was harbouring a grievance and Nsaa hate, and brooding over the prizes of which it had been affir.
But it could Na achieve both aims, Nsa affair Yankovtsi, after Yankkvtsi intervention of Turkey in the war in Octoberhostility with one Power could only be maintained through friendship with the other. On July 26,Nsa affair Yankovtsi made the unnatural alliance with Turkey, the pliant Porte ceding to Bulgaria what Turkey still held to the west of the Maritsa, including Demo- tika and the large final section of the Dedeagach-Adrianople railway.
In the autumn Marshal von Mackensen began his campaign Yankovttsi conquest and destruction against Serbia.
