Julien van Dommelen - Private Guide in Plovdiv
Languages: English, French
“I create a cultural bridge to Bulgaria and the Balkans to help you understand the region today and its contribution to our common cultural heritage.
The ancient Thracians and previous inhabitants of these lands are still talking to us through folklore, architecture and beautiful artifacts. For those who can see it (and I will show it to you) ancient history in Bulgaria and the Balkans is a fascinating story where every page connects us in time to ancient sources of knowledge and a global culture.
It is my passion to understand the ancients and share that knowledge with others who enjoy the same passion."
I specialise in historical and archaeological tours of Bulgaria and the Balkans. He has a passion for classical history, ancient knowledge, megalithic structures. Julien lives in Bulgaria for 6 years. He has learned Bulgarian and unravelled the origins of folkloric traditions that have been handed over millennia to young Bulgarians today.
I have extensive experience travelling with specialist groups in Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey and Romania.
