SOFIA, May 17 (Xinhua) -- A photo exhibition entitled "100 days in China" opened here on Monday near the Bulgarian National Palace of Culture.

The two-week exhibition features over 150 photographs taken by popular Bulgarian travelers Nickolay Genov and Rumyana Nikolova during their three-month journey throughout China.

"The authors traveled 20,000 kilometers in China with public transport and slept in hostels and cheap hotels as millions of ordinary Chinese people do and this way they showed the real China, " Zhang Zhonghua, cultural counselor at the Chinese Embassy in Bulgaria, said at the opening ceremony.

"We can call our 100 days in China a travel through the ancient empire and at the same time -- a meeting with the current Chinese miracle because our routes crossed roads of silk and tea, of holy people, conquerors, scholars and ordinary tramps like us," Genov said.

Nikolova said they hoped this exhibition would help Bulgarians in decoding the lovely hieroglyph called China.

The opening ceremony also included performance of Chinese martial arts and traditional dances.

The exhibition is supported by the Chinese Embassy in Bulgaria and the Sofia Municipality.
