Living in Bulgaria

We are a team of bloggers in Bulgaria, collecting all the information you may need if you are visiting Bulgaria for a holiday, staying for a short business trip or if you are an expat moving to live in this beautiful country.

We’d like to share with you some of our favourite things to do in Bulgaria through our travel guide. Read our blog about Bulgaria and our hotel and restaurant reviews for lots of fun stories. Also look out for our helpful tips, general information and news of any events happening! You can also find out more about who we are on the our bloggers page!

About Bulgaria

Bulgaria is situated in Eastern Europe and borders Greece, Romania, Macedonia, Turkey and Serbia. It is also easily reached by many low cost airlines and has four major airports all conveniently located near the major cities, Sofia, Plovdiv, Burgas and Varna.

It is fast becoming a popular destination for tourists, offering both ski resorts for the winter season and beach resorts for the summer. There are also many European companies opening offices in Bulgaria, meaning there’s a rise in expats living here too. Bulgaria still uses its own currency, the lev, meaning prices for food, accommodation and properties are all very low in comparison to most other cities in Europe.

Restaurants in Bulgaria

There are so many great restaurants in Bulgaria and the food is simply amazing! You are spoilt for choice with delicious meat, fish and salads. To truly experience Bulgarian cuisine, the traditional Shopska Salad has to be tried with a little Rakia to wash it down, just be careful though, Rakia is a very strong spirit! There’s also some very nice Bulgarian wines available in most restaurants so be sure to try those too.

In addition to the traditional food you will find fantastic pizza, sushi, kebabs, in fact, you’ll find everything!

❝ Nice pics and wonderful website; wish I had found it before my last full day in Sofia … The website looks excellent; very polished and professional. Whatever you add for Ruse, just emulate what you already have on the webpage for the other beautiful areas in this wonderful country. My other comment is that your website is very authentic and genuine. As long as you maintain those qualities, you’ll be in real good hands. ❞

❝ Great idea, great initiative! I am so excited to see foreigners living in Bulgaria, who like and appreciate our country, culture, nature, food, etc. Hope you will spend a great time living in Bulgaria, and find as much as possible friends here. Someone could meet his/her love here smile emoticon Just as advice, you can focus on popularizing our history (archeological sites, etc). I think it will be interesting for most of the people to visit Veliko Tarnovo, our monasteries, Plovdiv, Perperikon, Thracian hills(tombs), Sofia, etc, etc ❞
