Taking television to Bulgaria

Hi, just after a bit of tech advice. Will be spending most of next year in Bulgaria (close to Central Balkan National Park - Karlovo/Kazanlak area), and thinking of bringing our TV with us - is there any reason why a new-ish smart TV bought in UK may not be compatible with Bulgarian transmissions (p...

Re: Italy - Greece route

Thanks for the replies and useful information. We haven't finalised the route yet but are leaning towards overnight from Hull to Zeebrugge (to cut out my least favourite part of the drive, from north to south England), then on through France, northern Italy, Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia. The Italy-G...

Re: compulsory third-party insurance

Thanks for the replies. Yes I'll arrange the next MOT just before I leave the UK which should see me through, and will have a search for insurance policies that cover me for the full year in the EU (plus Serbia if possible). Re: satnavs - yes I know what you mean, last time driving through Romania w...

Re: compulsory third-party insurance

Hi all, Can anyone offer some general advice on the requirements for driving a UK registered car over to Bulgaria and keeping it (and driving it) there for a year? Is it simply a case of having insurance from the UK that covers the journey over there (I think mine has a maximum 1 month for any singl...

Re: Italy - Greece route

Hi, am reviving this thread to see if there's any updated information/experience on this route. We plan to drive over in late December / early January - was thinking that because it is winter, the route through France-Italy-Greece might be easier than through central Europe (which we've done once be...

Panagyurski kolonii

Hi, I wonder whether anyone might have any insights about the wildlife around Panagyurski kolonii, close to Panagyurishte. I have an opportunity to spend some time there and having done a bit of research on the place can't seem to find very much on the area in terms of wildlife - especially birds. A...

Sorted this now. In the end I signed a Power of Attorney to my wife so she can travel over on her own to agree to the sale (rather than us both signing a POA to our friend in Sofia). I took the POA letter (emailed from Bulgaria, in Bulgarian language) to a local Notary (in central Manchester) who ve...

http://www.megabytedata1.co.uk/MB064u/getlist.asp?lang=BU&langname=Bulgarian that gives you a few Bulgarian names for birds. Thanks for this link - very handy. If like me the table doesn't appear, you'll have to download/update Java Applet to view it. Well worth it for both familiarising yourself w...
