Man, chill out! How can you tell such things to our country that are overly exaggerated. This kind of viewpoint is too much and tourists here are chilling in BG, tf is your problem :(
On the other hand, we rank 26th place on GPI (Global Peace Index) accordig to 2018 statistics. Some developed countries are even not safe and has a lot of crime rates.

Plovdiv becomes more expensive each day. Compared to other bulgarian cities like Burgas and Varna, it is place where you spent more on eating out, especially reastaurants.

The country does have a good nature, but it is inhabitated with people who largely have a low culture, a primitive understanding of civilisation, and a gross language. Drivers disregard important traffic rules and lack prudence, on the public transport it is ugly as most are depressed old people or don't know how to behave. Aggressive people, who also love to treat each other badly, as this country is infamous with the exploitation of the workers and absent healthcare. Avoid visiting this country, as it does not provide anything, other than cheap alcohol and awful music.
