Bulgaria through the ages
This file shows Bulgaria's borders through the ages. See how once the mighty and big Bulgaria has now become a small country in South-Eastern Europe.
this map is a big lie
Showing that all actual Romanian teritorry was in past a Bulgarian province is a big lie. Bulgarians never occupied Romania, it was only a small bulgarian people presence here but on the east edge of Romania, in Dobrogea area.
Please, take a look at this:

The Gothic and Carpic campaigns in the Balkans during 238ľ256 forced the Roman Empire to reorganize a new Roman province of Dacia south of Danube, inside former Moesia Superior. Romanian historians claim that Dacians are the direct ancestors of present-day Romanians.
In 271 the ancient Dacia became the Kingdom of the Goths until the end of the fourth century, when it was included in the Hunnic Empire. The Gepids and the Avars ruled Transylvania until the 8th century, after which the Bulgars included Romania in their Empire until 1000. The Pechenegs, the Cumans and Uzes were also mentioned by historic chronicles on the territory of Romania until the founding of the Vlachian principalities of Wallachia by Basarab I, and Moldavia by Dragoş during the 13th and 14th centuries respectively. In the Middle Ages, Romanians lived in three distinct principalities: Wallachia, Moldavia, Transylvania.
