All New English Signposts in Yambol

All New English Signposts in Yambol
Since joining the EU, more and more signposts are now in English as well as Bulgarian. I just do not see why this is as Yambol is not really a tourist area. Eventually will it be just English? To me it just isn't necessary and yet another negative from the EU telling Bulgaria that this has to be put in place. After all Bulgarian and its cyrillic text is an official language of the EU, why don't they put Bulgarian cyrillic writings on signposts in the UK? If you are a foreigner living here, learn Bulgarian! If you happen to be a tourist, where will you find adventure of a new culture, including the language?

I know what you mean.

I don't think it's the EU that's telling BG that they have to do this though. I think it has more to do with ambitious people in government who want to make their place seem more international.

They think that it's "European" to have signs in both their own as well as the English language. And they want to seem European, but you will not see this anywhere in Europe except for in very touristic areas.
