It must be said that the national currency of Bulgaria is reliably protected from forging. In addition to watermarks, on the banknotes are located strips with microtext. The minimum denomination of denominations is 1 lev, the maximum one is 100 leva. The back side of the latter is adorned with a portrait of the well-known poet and publicist P. Slaveikov. The other banknotes depict architectural and historical monuments that the country is rich in.
After accession to the European Union (this isoccurred in 2007) it was expected that the Bulgarian currency would change to the euro, but to date, the leva continue to be in circulation. For the first time this national monetary unit was introduced in the country at the end of the 19th century. At that time, it was sufficiently backed by a certain amount of gold (roughly like a French franc). Since then, three denominations have been held in Bulgaria, the last of which occurred at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries.
