It was nice but I was just in Varna and Golden Sands and only for a short while. I decided to leave for Romania. Maybe I'll come back later, though.

Nice quiz. I only stumbled on the last two but got them after thinking for a second. At first I thought you were looking for an English name for rakia and was racking my brain to figure it out. It turned out much easier than that. :) And I'm very happy to see the LB question here. It's time people learn, that yogurt is not originally Greek.

Yeah, I don't think it's s good question. The hint is misleading - according to WP Rakia is a type of fruit brandy. I would say varieties of alcohol are not drinks like brandy, beer, wine, etc but more like ethanol, methanol, etc

Honestly this quiz is pretty easy when you are Bulgarian. Still got 15/17 on the first try though.
