Bulgaria National Anthem Lyrics

Mila Rodino (Transliteration)

Gorda Stara planina,
do ney Dunava siney,
slantse Trakiya ogryava,
nad Pirina plameney.

Refrain: (twice)
Mila Rodino,
ti si zemen ray,
tvoyta hubost, tvoyta prelest,
ah, te nyamat kray.

Padnaha bortsi bezchet,
za naroda nash lyubim,
mayko, day ni mazhka sila
patya im da prodalzhim.

Druzhno, bratya balgari!
S nas Moskva e v mir i boy!
Partiya velika vodi
Nashiya pobeden stroy.

Dear Motherland (English Translation)

Proud Balkan Mountains,
next to it the Danube sparkles,
the sun shines over Thrace,
and blazes over Pirin.

Refrain: (twice)
Dear Motherland,
you are heaven on earth,
your beauty, your loveliness,
ah, they are boundless.

Countless fighters died,
for our beloved people,
mother, give us manly strength
to continue their path.

Together, Bulgarian brothers!
Moscow is with us in peace and war!
A great Party leads
Our victorious society.

Gorda Stara Planina,

Slantse Vitosh pozlatyava
kam Tsarigrad se beley.

Refrain:
Mila Rodino,
ti si zemen ray,
tvoyta hubost, tvoyta prelest,
ah, te nyamat kray.

Hayde bratya balgari,
kam Balkana da varvim.
Tam se gotvi boy yunashki,
za svoboda, pravdini.

Refrain: Mila...

Dear Motherland (English translation)

Proud Stara Planina,
next to it the north sparkles,
the sun gilds Vitosha
towards Tsarigrad it shines white.

Refrain:
Dear Motherland,
you are heaven on earth,
your beauty, your loveliness,
ah, they are boundless.

Bulgarian brothers, let's go
to the Balkan.
There a heroic battle is approaching,
for freedom, justice.

Refrain: Dear...
