The Balkan nation of Bulgaria is made up of a rich mix of historic Greek, Ottoman, Slavic, and Persian cultures, making it both traditional and diverse. Home to the Danube River, vast mountainous and forest-covered landscapes, and the Black Sea coastline, Bulgaria has much to see and explore. Its capital Sofia is filled with iconic religious art and architecture, and is located close to the popular ski mountain of Vitosha. Many expats working in Bulgaria feel like their salary is much higher than their usual income at home. Well-paid jobs in Bulgaria include IT specialists, visual artists and engineers with foreign languages, as well as in international sales. Sofia has the lowest unemployment rate in the country and booming industries in these fields.
