Civilization V Customisation Wiki

Bulgaria led by Vasil Levski is a custom civilization by Merrick and DuskJockey, with contributions from TPangolin, Civitar, DJSHenninger, Barathor, JFD, Sukritact, and Chrisy15.

This mod requires Gods and Kings and Brave New World, and will replace the city-state of Sofia with Mystras.



Bulgaria is a country occupying the eastern portion of the Balkan Peninsula in southeastern Europe, and is one of the oldest states on the European continent. It is intersected by historically important routes from northern and eastern Europe to the Mediterranean basin and from western and central Europe to the Middle East. Before the creation of the Bulgarian state, the empires of ancient Rome, Greece, and Byzantium were strong presences, and people and goods traveled the land with great frequency.

Vasil Levski[]

Vasil Ivanov Kunchev, also known as Vasil Levski, was a Bulgarian revolutionary leader and a major figure in the struggle for liberation of Bulgaria from Ottoman rule.

Dawn of Man[]

Welcome, Vasil Ivanov Kunchev, Apostle of Freedom and revolutionary hero of Bulgaria! The people you lead have a long and storied history. The lands of present-day Bulgaria were settled by successive waves of Thracians, Slavs, and Bulgars, all contributing to create a melting pot of culture nestled in the embrace of the Balkan mountains. These lands have seen the rise and fall of kingdoms and empires, and the overthrow of cruel overlords both within and without. It is your idea of a pure and sacred land, o Vasil, that has kept Bulgaria hale and whole until the present day.


Leaderscene by Merrick and TPangolin

O leonine Vasil, the Bulgarian people suffer once more from the yoke of oppressive regimes and corrupt powers. Will you stand with your countrymen and lead them to the immaculate Bulgaria you envisioned? Can you create a civilization to stand the test of time?

Introduction: It is an honor to finally meet you, great leader. I am Vasil Levski, proud son of Bulgaria.

Defeat: Strike me down, and another will simply take my place. The spirit of liberty is not easily quenched.
