In the past, IMC locations were selected taking into account the relative
accessibility for the vast majority of IMC participants. The large group of very
active observers in the Balkans was a positive factor in having the 1994 IMC in
Bulgaria. The longer travel distance turned out to be no real problem for many
IMC veterans from western Europe. The warm hospitality of the Bulgarian
organizers remains unforgettable. An adventurous excursion into a cave without
electric lights, but with impressive prehistoric wall paintings, and the view of
the old Belogradchik Castle in the soft twilight, are some beautiful memories of
the 1994 IMC.
