“My spirit is here, in Bulgaria. That is why I don’t find it difficult to write about this country, although I live thousands of miles away”, Bulgarian writer Martin Ralchevski told Radio Bulgaria some time ago. The Sofia-born writer is an author of nearly 10 books and some of them were published in English and Russian. Martin graduated from the Faculty of Theology at the Sofia University. However, the poor economic status of the Bulgarian priests forced him to emigrate to England. Although Martin claims that “the real Bulgarians are those who stay in Bulgaria”, he keeps on writing and working for the preservation of the Bulgarian national spirit and the Orthodox religion. “Belief in immortality inspires me”, Martin Ralchevski says in an interview for Radio Bulgaria. His latest book “The Meaning of Life” deserves to be turned into a movie. Some people describe it as a remedy book – “it touches your soul and overturns it, leaving a few scratches and a lot of love.”

What would drive Bulgarians living abroad to return to their home country? A miracle such as the one Martin Ralchevski describes in his book about the Rhodopes? You can learn the answer in the following article: "Writer Martin Ralchevski: We must believe Bulgaria would continue to exist!"
