WHY BULGARIA?

Change is the only constant

Usually, when we start thinking about change, that means it’s already happening – albeit only inside of us. And what happens on the inside usually always translates on the outside as well. Fоr many people change is associated with moving – due to thirst for new adventures and opportunities …or simply a need for a different direction.

 

And if you are considering relocation and that new direction in your life, this welcomed change of scenery for you could be Bulgaria. A country where today live around 58 000 foreigners (by latest estimation), with constantly evolving environment and many opportunities for creating a full and satisfactory life and continuing great career for every person at ScaleFocus who is brave enough to try. According to OECD’s Better Life Index, today Bulgaria ranks among the top countries with good work-life balance, high quality of life satisfaction and since February 2019 is 11th in the Good Country Index (a measurement of how each country on earth contributes to the common good of humanity) from 153 countries total.

 

But if you still need some convincing on why you should relocate in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, here are some additional points to help you consider it.

More than great lifestyle

Let’s be clear: whichever location in Bulgaria you choose to settle in, your lifestyle and standard of living are going to be pretty great. You can choose to live in a city apartment, a house in the outskirts of one of the bigger cities ScaleFocus has offices in, or simply move around and let life show you where you feel most comfortable. Each city location provides you with endless opportunities for leisure time and access to a big range of amenities such as shopping centers, supermarkets, cafes, cinemas, theatres, hospitals, parks, and schools. All of this goes in a package with pretty affordable prices for all entertainment and commodities you can ask for.

For example, the overall cost of living in Bulgaria is 48.12% lower than, for example, that in the United Kingdom.

Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages cost around 65% less, and clothing costs are 75% less than European Union average.

A decent two-bedroom apartment in Sofia is around 300 EUR a month and all bills amount to around 70 EUR a month.

Bulgaria has a flat tax system so anyone who wants to reduce the amount of tax on their income should consider it.

All of this goes in package with affortable prices for all entertainment and commodities you can ask for.

Тhe gift of time

One of the biggest commodities you can ask for – one that seems free, but we should never take for granted because it’s easy to lose: time. Even though the cities you can choose among are big (besides beautiful), your commute from work would certainly never take more than 40 minutes to an hour – it’s actually more likely to be around half an hour at the most.

This opens up all this free time for friends, family and other activities that would not be available to you if you lose your whole evening traveling back from work. This is one of the most important things if you want to raise a family here as well – more time and options for activities with the children after work is something nobody can put a price on.

Change is the only constant

MORE FUN, LESS STRESS

For a lot of people who come to live in Bulgaria there is a pleasant surprise: the stressful аnd fast-paced atmosphere they might have been used to before is gone here. Even if you still live in the big city and the life seems pretty dynamic, the quality of leisure time is really good. One of the biggest attractions for foreigners remains the opportunities to enjoy the good things in life and the diversity of hobbies and activities they can perform here.

LIVING YOUR BEST LIFE

Bulgaria is home to beautiful beaches and gorgeous mountains so everything is within your reach and is relatively close no matter where you are located. So skiing in the winter, camping in the summer, walking in the mountains, biking in a beautiful countryside, enjoying the beach or simply watching the sunset – there is something about Bulgaria that just beckons you to slow it down, no matter how much dynamic you have in your day.

HISTORY & BEAUTY

Bulgaria has another particular charm: it’s a country with really rich history where the old world meets the new in very amazing ways. You can always go to the countryside and meet the locals where time seems to stand still, there is ethnic charm in the atmosphere and people live by raising cattle and working the land. You can find that local magic in а lot of spots: in the mountains and by the sea, in the little villages in the plains where you can feel in a fairy-tale.

A great place to work and make a life
