Bulgaria is the place that will turn a short trip into a longterm stay.

Everything that makes you want to stay, and nothing that makes you want to leave.

Sofia, BulgariaMany people around the world decide to re-evaluate their life, to leave the everyday, mundane routine that has stolen their life and resolve to start a new beginning in a new place, whether for a short trip or major move.

Some take the road to Santiago, others spend a month or two in India or in the poorest areas of the world, and others go for a trip to Las Vegas to dive in the luxury of carelessness and irresponsible impulsiveness. Another category of people just go to live somewhere else, in a different country with a completely different culture. The reasons for this vary vastly, including tragedy in the family, serious illness, the loss of a job, being burned-out or depression. People everywhere are looking for a peaceful, quiet, clean, inexpensive but secure place to settle down. For these people, Bulgaria is one of the best options.

If you’re from a country with a high standard-of-living – Bulgaria is extremely suitable for you. With the rent you’re paying in your country, you can rent an apartment in the center of Sofia or a house in the outskirts of the city, with enough excess money for food, clothes, entertainment and travel within the country.
