Yes I agree that we can judge roughly about people on what they like to listen. But in other aspects it may not be so important.

I'd rather ask myself do people in Bulgaria live better that in let's say France?

Here the minimum wage is 175E, while in France 1270E before taxes.
Here one loaf of bread is 0.35E, while in France, maybe 2 or 3E.

Yes, the beer here is excellent, malty and too cheap compared to the beers in other parts of EU. For example 1L plastic bottle of all
makes is 0.75E, while in France, maybe 4-5E or more? I won't be astonished if this figure is even 8-9E in some countries.

The same is for cigarettes: 2-2.25E a pack for any International make, while in other EU states 8 to 12E!

If you like we can compare these and other prices. cheers

A coffee out is 0.5E here while in Greece is 3E! I wonder how much does it cost in Germany or UK?

Many Greek and other nationals come to Bulgaria to have their teeth repaired. A dentist here will charge 100E for a crown of one tooth, 200 for a bridge of 2 teeth, etc. What about in your country?

Some 20 years ago I watched "Forrest gump". A very special film indeed since it was a fun and a thoughtful and carefully made, and pleasant to watch.

The main actor in it - Tom Hanks - of course, had made it even better! Well, what was my surprise to discover that he have been married to a Bulgarian woman. cheers

Elizabeth Kostova.

Some time ago I heard this Bulgarian sounding name to have received a best novel prize in the States. Well at last, I said, they had noticed us.

Well it wasn't exactly the case again. Simply this woman writer had taken the name of her husband - a Bulgarian programmer.

Some Greek guy asked about the drugs related crimes here. Well.

Marseilles, France was the whole of the year 2013 the European city of culture. What a joke.

During that period 70 drugs related murders were reported there, according to Brit's Daily Telegraph. As for the whole of Bulgaria, that is 10 times more populous than that so famous French city - 2!

So, there are enough of reasons one should visit this country, be it as a sea/spa/mountain/cultural tourist or simply on a business/private trip.

From Paris, for example, it would take you 2h40min and will cost you 100E in one direction or 250E in both on fixed dates.

But if you had wanted to set-up a cherry garden like one Greek man did, or a snail-farm, etc. you are a little bit too late as the prices of the agricultural lands have equaled that of similar ones in France.

cheers

init2010: okay, but tell us about Bulgarian women.

Are they part of your marvelous beaches, or do we find them in the mountains? I never had rendevous at 2200 meters altitude, it would be breath-taking.


Bulgarian Women are very nice.. but they like faithful guyscheering laugh eu

Bulgaria

First tings first!

Where is it? Bulgaria is situated on the N43 latitude - the same parallel as the famous Cote d'Azur of Southermost France.

It is a small country to the north of Greece. In fact it's twice the size of Netherland and it's 4 times less populous.

To the East it borders the least salty sea in the world - the Black sea which is 2 times less salty than the Mediterranean sea.
It's the best place to have a bath in the summer. It's beaches are marvelous. No low nor high tides whatsoever!

Half of Bulgaria are mountains - many kinds of them we have here - some as high as the Swiss Alps, some vast, some long, some just like a big hill of 2200m near Sofia. All beautiful in their different ways, I can assure you, as I have roamed them all!

Well? What else? You may ask me or you may simply come and see for yourself. I'll be glad both ways.


If s.o. really wants to come to know Bulgaria just let me know, I'll personally show it to you. For the cost money of a chômage (a french word) you can live quite a happy month here.

Yes the beer here is great!



yes, i have been in Bulgaria. beautiful country, fabulous food, amazing history, and friendly people. difficult to do business -very... very difficult, too much "insiders". but with great potential.

cheers

Yes, Mr Bogart, here like in France or most of any other countries in the world, corruption is much tolerated. These are more interpersonal things usually. But sometimes on much bigger scale too. Just like in USA or UK. rolling on the floor laughing

cheers

I visited Bulgaria in 1997 I ve been in Belene near Tuna river.Velico Turnevo city also.But it was the post communist times empty airports,slow busses but very good cigarettes named Credets and President.

I will never forget their taste.Also noticed that NODS is yes and Also i can be your penpal but because of the corona virus hoax probably it is not a good idea.But you decide.

Have a great evening.

ivajlov: Well, on this site there are quite enough of them. You can try your luck!!

But if you know my opinion they are too dark for you and me.

Here are the facts: Bulgarian women are by far most in numbers dark haired - black, sometimes dark brown, and have dark eyes - black or hazel at most. You can never tell by these eyes when they lie Blue eyes have only about 5 percent! And green about 7%.

What is most annoying is they have so small foreheads. Sorry, gals, but it's the truth.

Do you have more questions that I can answer?
try Hungary, you'd enjoy, you surely will have a good time there!
