Mila Rodino (bg. Мила Родино, pron. [ˈmiɫɐ ˈrɔdino] "MEE-luh RAW-dee-no"; en. 'Dear Motherland') is the national anthem of Bulgaria.

It was originally a song written and composed by Bulgarian author and scientist Țvetan Radoslavov Hagi-Dencov (1863–1931) whilst on a mission to fight in the Serbo-Bulgarian War in 1885.

The song was first adopted in 1964 as the anthem of the People's Republic of Bulgaria with different lyrics (words), then again in 1991 when the communist regime fell.[1][2]

I
Горда Стара планина,
до ней Дунава синей,
слънце Тракия огрява,
над Пирина пламеней.

Припев:
Мила Родино,
ти си земен рай,
твойта хубост, твойта прелест,
ах, те нямат край.

Паднаха борци безчет,
за народа наш любим,
майко, дай ни мъжка сила,
пътя им да продължим.

Дружно, братя българи!
С нас Москва е в мир и в бой!
Партия велика води
нашия победен строй.

Do nei Dunava sinei,

Nad Pirina plamenei.

Tvoita hubost, tvoita prelest,
Ah, te neamat crai.

Pătea im da prodăljim.

S nas Moscva e v mir i v boi!
Partia velica vodi
Nașia pobeden stroi.

Poetic English translation[change | change source]

Oh thy Balkan Mounts noble,
By it sparkleth the Danube;
O'er Thrace the Sun beameth forth,
O'er Pirin blazeth forth.
Chorus:
Oh dear Motherland,
Thou – earth's Promised Land,
Thy beauty, loveliness,
Ah, fore'er boundless.
For our people beloved,
Lives martyrs have sacrificed;
Mother, give us virile strength
For persevering their path.
Chorus
As one, Bulgarian kins!
With Moscow in war and peace!
Lead by thy great Party
Our regime of victory.
Chorus

Dear Motherland
Translated into English

Горда стара планина,
До ней север се синей
Слънце Витош позлатява
Към Цариград се белей.

Припев:
Мила Родино,
Ти си земен рай,
Твойта хубост, твойта прелест,
Ах, те нямат край.

Хайде братя българи,
Към Балкана да вървим.
Там се готви бой юнашки,
За свобода, правдини.

Припев

Родино мила, теб привет,
О, майко теб привет!
Теб Българийо чада сме,
Ти си наший дом свещен!

Припев

Ти си наший кът любим,
Кът за щастие отреден!
Мил си край незабравим,
С чудна прелест надарен!

Припев

Как щедро, майко, е
Земята твоя осеяна с брилянти!
Сред тях прекрасен свети
Балканът горд напет –

Припев

О, виж го как сияй!
Ний благоговеем пред него и пеем:

Припев[4]

Gorda Stara Planina,
Do nei sever se sinei.
Slănțe Vitoș pozlateava
Căm Țarigrad se belei.

Pripev:
Mila Rodino,
Ti si zemen rai,
Tvoita hubost, tvoita prelest –
Ah, te neamat crai.

Haide bratea bălgari,
Căm Balcana da vărvim.
Tam se gotvi boi iunașchi,
Za svoboda, pravdini.

Pripev

Rodino mila, teb privet,
O, maico teb privet!
Teb Bălgario ceada sme,
Ti si nașii dom sveșten!

Pripev

Ti si nașii căt liubim,
Căt za ștastie otreden!
Mil si crai nezabravim,
S ciudna prelest nadaren!

Pripev

Cac ștedro, maico, e
Zemeata tvoia oseiana s brileanti!
Sred teah precrasen sveti
Balcanăt gord napet –

Pripev

O, vij go cac siai!
Nii blagogoveem pred nego i peem:

Pripev

Oh the Balkan Mounts noble,
Beside it sparkleth the North;
The Sun gildeth Vitosha,
Toward Tsargrad whitely shineth forth.
 
Refrain:
Oh dear Motherland,
Thou – earth's Promised Land,
Thy beauty, loveliness,
Ah, fore'er boundless.

Kins Bulgarian, off we go
Toward the Balkan Mounts!
There approacheth a heroic battle,
For freedom, for justice.

Refrain

Dear Motherland, greetings to thee,
Oh Mother, we welcome thee!
Sons of Bulgaria thou art –
Our sacred home thou art!

Refrain

Thou art our playground cherished,
Thou art for happiness destined!
An ending unforgettable,
With wondrous beauty endowed!

Refrain

How generous, Mother it is,
Thy land aboundeth in diamonds!
'Mong these wonderful lights
Proudly spruceth up the Balkans –

Refrain

Oh, look how radiant it is!
Before him, we reverence and sing:

In popular culture[change | change source]

In October 2017, a Redditor reported an incident where Siri thought the national anthem of Bulgaria was Luis Fonsi's single "Despacito" (ft. Daddy Yankee). This bug was fixed afterwards.[5][6][7][8]
