When you consider that the flights are more expensive from Russia (unless was BA :D ) that is quite interesting. Since some Russians I have met are bi-lingual and some speak 3 and 4 languages I doubt they have the same attitude as most Brits. Yes learning a foreign language is hard, but it opens mor...

Record number of foriegners apply for BG Citizenship..

The language has the same format in grammer, same cyrillic alphabet and a few words are similar. Perhaps it is easier for Russians to learn therefore. However the 2 languages although they share similarities are separate languages. Being able to speak or understand Ukranian makes it easier still app...

Values holding?

Wow, that is a 5th of what he paid! Seems there are bargains to be had if you have the cash! That is the key, some people over extended themselves in a greedy attempt to grab more of the market. These people are now desperate to sell (I know one such person, he has assets he just can't sell), yet do...

Rubbish MW! My wife is Russian. Her father was Polish. She understands maybe 30% at best. Her sister is Russian, when she came to Bulgaria she understood practically no Bulgarian, not enough to hold a conversation anyway. Other Russians tell me the same thing, including my old Russian teacher in the...

Until recently we all had to suffer the visa/reporting constraints before Bulgaria joined the EU. I remember it well. So I sympathise. For those wanting to bash the Russians, while it is true some of those with money got it from the backs of the normal Joe Public, you cannot tar them all with the sa...

It has for many years been common in Bulgaria for a family to have a house or apartment in town and a place in the country, in the mountains or at the seaside. In Britain only the extremely rich have two or more houses. In Bulgaria it is common. And houses have not traditionally been treted as a co...

Anyone have any recomendations for a reliable way of ensuring the upkeep of our property? We had wanted to rent it but while the house is good by Bulgarian standards it is not up...
