Where to live in Bulgaria?

Why is it important to reflect on that question and get expert advice before purchasing a property in Bulgaria? Because according to statistics, 64-67% of buyers believe that the purchase went smoothly and successfully, but the property is not acquired in the place wherever they are now happy moved.

In this article we will not divide people into groups according to age, social or marital status. Just describe a few popular options where to live in Bulgaria and where to move.

Taras Rozgon, Director General of the company BolgarskiyDom:

Customers from Russia, Ukraine and CIS countries often ask me: "Where would you recommend to move to Bulgaria"? And my answer starts first and foremost with a few questions. How would you like to live and where? What you plan to do? Do you have a stable income? Do you have children? Based on these answers I can give adequate advice or at least to share information, which is almost impossible to obtain from public sources.

Burgas, Varna and nearby cities

Варна и Бургас

Burgas and Varna - the city equivalent to each other, although someone might have a preference for one or another administrative centre. In both well-developed infrastructure, the construction of new residential properties, there is a Park area. Here often relocate to relocate pensioners and couples with children.

It is important to note that the Varna and Burgas, though located on the seafront - they are primarily regional rather than resort centers. Here are quite a quick pace of life: everyone is busy working, traveling for their business, a lot of personal and public transport. It is good to live those who on the one hand, attracts the city's infrastructure, and with another – the opportunity to live near the sea.

If you want a beach mood, you can move to a neighboring city, for example, in Pomorie or Ravda.

Why come here retired?
  • Medical establishments, banks and shops in close proximity, and comfortable public transport.
  • The virtual absence of fee-for-service complexes, which makes life considerably cheaper.

Of the minuses - the language barrier, which in the cities is felt stronger.

Why come here for a family with kids?
  • A good opportunity to realize themselves in the business field, focused on the urban population or the visiting tourists.
  • GaraNTIA quality education for children. With education everything is fine even in towns with a population up to 10,000. You can live by the sea, not thinking about what we need to carry the child to study in one of the two administrative centers.

School in Bulgaria - the pride of an area. Municipal authorities do not spare money on them. For example, a school in Nessebar meets the highest standards and works on the same level, and even higher in some schools of Burgas and Varna. In each class there are three or four Russian speakers of disciple that facilitates the adoption of a child/teenager and gradually introduces him to "the youth of the Bulgarian peace."

You need to consider, moving to Varna, Burgas and their suburbs from the big city?
  • The standard of living here is much lower. And this despite all progress and efforts of the authorities, who each year invest a lot of resources in their development.
  • The presence of the sea rescues only in that case if you live right on the beach. In other cases, gradually tighten the urban routine.

Resort towns

Морской курорт Болгарии

About 70% of immigrants opt for a life of sea resort towns and villages. Moving here are mostly those who plan to earn during the tourist flow in the summer or want to enjoy the sea and soak up its charms all year round.

The most popular are: St. Constantine and Elena, St. Vlas, Sunny beach, Nessebar, Ravda, Pomorie, Sozopol. The settlements, which over the last 15 years got the infrastructure that can support living there everything necessary for a comfortable life.


  • The proximity to one another and to regional centers (10-30 km).
  • No attachment to a city apartment. Today the construction of new, modern roads funding at the national level.
  • The presence of residential complexes with a landscaped area. A high level of service, especially in the summer. Of course, much depends on the value of the property and selected location, but in General housing is always worthy.
  • The staff of hotels, shops and medical facilities, multilingual (including Russian). Will not have problems to explain to the doctor his problem, etc.
  • International restaurant in restaurants and cafes, and availability of familiar foods in the stores.
What is there to do in the winter?

Life in winter is in the first place, perfectly clean sea air, mAHCI climate and quality products. Summer urban commotion gives way to the sedate pace of life on the thread where you can expand your circle of friends and become better acquainted with the local people, landmarks and cultural values. The infrastructure of many major resorts allows you to live here all year round.

Moving to Bulgaria for permanent residence in the countryside

Поселки в Болгарии

In recent years one of the priorities was the acquisition of houses for permanent living near the resorts. Suitable for people who want to live in a private house in a rural location, with garden or plot of land.

Option is very convenient. It only takes 10-15 minutes drive by car or public transport to change a quiet, peaceful environment to a noisy, crowded coast (and Vice versa).

True, and then there are nuances. For example, urban growth has not bypassed Bulgaria side that significantly influenced internal migration (migration from villages and the natural decline in them). This primarily relates to settlements remote from sea lanes by more than 10 km. Considering them as an option for permanent housing, it is necessary to pay attention not only to the low cost of homes and land.

It is important to consider!
  • with whom do you live next door - with a working married couple or noisy sedentary Gypsies (the latter can be found frequently);
  • what is the status of the house (is it possible to enter it without costly, complex repairs);
  • will there be problems in the future, if you want to sell or exchange.

There are cases when cheap houses in these villages were acquired by the elderly, not paying attention to other factors. In the end, they remained alone with their problems, and in trying to sell the house, couldn't return invested in the property money.

What villages should we choose for life?

Suggest to consider the well-known villages that are located in recreational areas (3-10 km from the shoreline). They are more developed, rich and are funded by the local administration. In the list: Kosharitsa, Marina, Edge of the sea Tankovo, private sector Review, Byala, Sozopol, Sveti Vlas. The cost of houses in these settlements will be higher, but the quality of housing (life in General) too has changed significantly. In any case you choose.

To summarize:

  1. To understand where is better to live in Bulgaria, in the beginning think about the needs of your family. How comfortable life will be selected your town. For example, for families with children the proximity of educational institutions, therefore it is better to settle in cities or close to them. For seniors is of paramount importance infrastructure component and access to quality health services.
  2. If we talk about the format of the home, it is best to choose flats or apartments. If you still stayed at a private home, be aware of the disadvantages of rural areas and taking into account the prospects of sales in the future.
