comment Languages in Bulgaria?
Bulgarian is way way easier than Russian, it would make a useful stepping stone toward learning Russian later. The other way around and you're likely to get put off language learning entirely by all the scary inflected case endings only to find you don't need them at all for Bulgarian.

comment Languages in Bulgaria?
Macedonian is basically a very close Bulgarian dialect, but with a different Cyrillic orthography for reasons of national pride. Bulgarian and Macedonian are by far the easiest Slavic languages. Serbian/Croatian is more complex but not so much as Polish or Russian. Knowledge of any Slavic language gives you a huge head start in any other. False friends are not a barrier to learning - we have enough false friends just between the various Englishes ...

comment What to do when no search engine can find a connection that clearly exists
Try Adioso and Momondo. I often found flights on those two that didn't show up on more famous search engines (or each other).
