Bulgaria

Citizenship by Investment

Bulgaria

Bulgaria shares boundaries with Serbia, Macedonia, Romania, Greece, and Turkey. Two mountainous peaks and two huge valleys define the topography of Bulgaria – a land in the area of Tennessee and located by the Black Sea. The Maritsa is Bulgaria’s main river, and the Danube also streams through it. It has temperate-continental weather with cool traits, which is unique for Central Europe, with warm summers, long-drawn, cold winters, and very different seasons.

Plentiful snowfalls may happen in the country between December to mid-March, notably if you are in the mountain areas of Bulgaria.
