They really love lions in Bulgaria. Three lions decorate their current coat of arms and lions were used to decorate the coats of arms of Bulgaria at least since 1295. Around Sofia you will found several statues of the king of the jungle decorating the city in their own majestic way. But don't be alerted. Lions do not exist in Bulgaria anymore as according to Greek ancient writers, Aristotle and Herodotus, lions were endangered species in the area since 300 BC until their final extinction in 100 BC
