The Bulgarian Parliament has a history of 125 years. The Bulgarian state in Europe is at best ten times older. The Bulgarian state was founded at the end of the 7th century, on both sides of the lower reaches of the Danube by the union of the Slavic tribes, who had settled earlier in these parts and the Bulgarians coming from the East, from the East, from the lands of today's East Ukraine and Kuban.
