What are the other advantages of living in Bulgaria? 

◉  Low cost of living  
Probably the biggest advantage of being and expat working in Sofia is the low cost of living. With what you earn, working for Euroccor in the BPO sector, you can afford very good lifestyle. 

◉  Beverages and food outside

◉  Beautiful nature  
Sofia offers a lot of big and very green parks where you can take a walk with your friends or just relax on the grass.  Situated in the foot of Vitosha Mountain, Sofia offers a beautiful nature brought in the city. 

◉  Great Nightlife 
What foreigners and tourists say about Sofia is that it has great night life. Bulgarians have a reputation as social, naturally curious and warm-hearted people who know how to have a party and share a good laugh. Sofia is a vibrant city that has a lot to offer. You can find restaurants, bars and clubs for every taste. The nightlife of Sofia is available almost every night and the city center streets are full of people from Monday to Sunday! 

◉  Rich history and culture 
Bulgaria is one of the oldest countries in Europe and has a very ancient and rich history. At the edge of Europe and Asia, almost all of the great ancient cultures and civilizations have made their mark. The Thracian, Ancient Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and the Ottoman Empire have all left behind a multitude of monuments, such as tombs, structures, temples and mosques. 

◉  Relaxed pace of life 
Even though Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria with a little bit more than a million population, you don’t feel the stress and the dynamics of living in a big city like London, Paris or Rome. Everything is within close proximity and pace of life is really relaxed. 

◉  Safety 
Sofia is a very safe city to live in. The country is peaceful and safe, accepting different cultures and religions. Sofia is maybe the only one city in Europe where within 500 sq.m distance you can find a church, a mosque, and a synagogue. 

◉  Flavorsome cuisine 
Bulgaria’s cuisine is fresh and delicious. With outstanding regional vegetables, fragrant spices and quality barbecued meats, Bulgarian cuisine is an absolute Balkan jewel. 

◉  Great climate 
Northern Europe is rainy and cool all year round and the Mediterranean doesn’t boast the Christmas delight of a snowy winter. How about a proper hot summer and a cold, snowy winter, with pleasant spring and autumn in between? Bulgaria’s climate gets the best of the north and the south. It’s usually dry and sunny, but temperatures vary greatly between seasons, unlike Germany or England, where seasonal temperature differences are much.
