The distance between the two capitals, Berlin and Sofia, is 1,700 kilometers by car or a 20-hour car journey through several countries.

As they say, life is good here.

• The country is divided into 28 administrative districts, the oblasts. On the Black Sea there are the three oblasts of Dobrich, Burgas and Varna. As a transit country that has always been important, Bulgaria has a good to very good road and rail transport infrastructure. The country-wide road network is 25,000 kilometers long.

Tips for preparing for the future focal point of Bulgaria

What is certain is that the decision to emigrate to eastern Bulgaria needs to be carefully considered. But if the answer to the question about change is yes, even after several unified considerations, then action should follow. With these tips, YOU are on the safe side to quickly settle in far away from your current home and then to feel at home for the rest of your life.

• Formalities and bureaucracy
The registration of the new place of residence, which is comparable to Germany, takes place at the local police station at the place of residence. This is where the temporary residence permit, issued for five years, WILL be issued. An ID card serves as identification in the country, the identification card instead of the identity card known here. After the 5-year period has expired, it is extended by another five years and WILL then be repeated as often as you like. For the first and single entry from EU country to EU country, the valid identity card or passport is the sufficient document.

• Language and writing
The national language is Bulgarian and is officially written in the Cyrillic alphabet. This difficulty can be mastered by the emigrant by making himself familiar with the national language and the hitherto unknown spelling even in retirement age. As a result, a lot has to be translated in the early days. Correspondence with the real estate agent for Bulgaria is, of course, written and spoken in German. If rental or purchase contracts are concluded or notarized, this can be done either in German or in Bulgarian with an officially certified translation.

• Cheap currency and cheap living in the country
The Bulgarian currency is the lev.
Bulgaria does not belong to the countries of the euro zone, but also has its national currency as an EU member country. This now benefits the pensioner. The exchange rate is as follows: – 1 lev = ~ 0.50 euros depending on the daily
– 1 euro = ~ 2 levs
– 1,000 euros is about 2,000 levs

Due to the different living standards, the German pension in Bulgaria is worth more than twice as much. This starts with the cost of the accommodation including rent, utilities and energy costs and continues to the daily expenses in the supermarket and in retail. For example, 1,500 euros correspond to a monthly net income of 3,000 leva. In contrast, the price and cost difference between Bulgaria's major cities and the regional regions is significant for everyday products.

• Health insurance and medical care
The emigrant should in any case take out private foreign health insurance to the statutory one. With that he is on the safe side here in Bulgaria to be medically svorgart always and everywhere at the highest level. This applies to both outpatients and inpatients in the modernly equipped hospitals in all major Bulgarian cities. Not every private health insurance company offers this insurance protection throughout the day. In this respect, it is sometimes necessary to afford such a foreign medical police if necessary.
