Couples lining up to face each other are given 30 seconds to chat before moving on, in a version of speed dating that – rather than sparking romance – aims to promote understanding and integration for new immigrants. At a social center in the Bulgarian capital Sofia, the locals stand on one side, the immigrants – many refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and other war-torn countries – face them.Bulgarians also appreciated the speedy encounters, as well as the Middle Eastern food and traditional Afghan dances afterward.
