The Bulgarian Posts (Български пощи, Balgarski poshti) are the national postal service of Bulgaria. The company was founded after the Liberation of Bulgaria from Ottoman rule, as the Russians handed all the post and telegraph offices to the newly-restored Bulgarian state on 14 May 1879. Bulgaria was accepted into the Universal Postal Union on 1 July 1879.
As of 2005, the company operated 3,008 post offices and a total of 80,060 km of postal routes. The Bulgarian Posts are a joint-stock company since 31 March 1997.
Famous quotes containing the words posts and/or bulgarian:
“Get posts and letters, and make friends with speed;
Never so few, and never yet more need.”

“In the end we beat them with Levi 501 jeans. Seventy-two years of Communist indoctrination and propaganda was drowned out by a three-ounce Sony Walkman. A huge totalitarian system ... has been brought to its knees because nobody wants to wear Bulgarian shoes.... Now theyre lunch, and were number one on the planet.”
