Haters gonna hate. Whiners gonna whine. Varna is a nice city, if you're a well educated specialist you'll have a good job for good amount of money for the standard and respectively a good life. I know people working there as pharmaceutist, lawyer, casino croupier, auditor, web designer. They all earn about 1000lv net or more, which is more than the average income in the country. Of course if you're a salesman or laborer you won't be paid good, but these types of jobs are not paid well everywhere around the world. Don't complain and get your shit together.

In response to Adam - you're an arrogant hater who's focused at the bad stuff.

Hi,
I writing you abot Bulgarian dates.
Salaries in Varna is a second in Bulgaria after Sofia. By official statistic in 2016 - 938 leva.
Sofia - 1,264, Plovdov - 835 leva, Burgas - 746 leva. This is gross salaries per months, but information of net salaries is not correct.

Hey guys, I am from Varna, living there is almost imposible! If you have 300 euros for a salary you are a lucky man! A lot of emmigration, bad infrastructure, sad people, angry and talking bullshits and lies all the time! I wish I ca say a good word, but I can't !
#Adam on Oct 11, 2015 :
Guys don't waste your time and money going to bulgaria, this country is a less-than-3rd world sh**hole. I lived there for 2 years, everybody in that country is angry all the time. They hate themselves, and also others.
