Bulgarian men and women look like a bad experiment gone wrong the missing link.

Enjoy your time in Varna Icelander.Varna is known to be the organized crime capital of Bulgaria.Theres a heavy Mafia presence there.I'm a Brit lived in Varna for just 5 months.I planned on retirement there.Heres what changed my mind.As a foreigner in Varna you will notice things that seem different in the beginning which is normal.But those things tend to be ongoing on a much more intense level.I don't visit bars or clubs not my thing.Once you rent or buy a place to live word travels quickly via the real estate agent you dealt with or the owner of the property for that matter.They will tell others everything about you including your proof of income which is required to rent or buy real estate.

People were following me back home from going shopping or just walking around.A woman who lived across the street told me the mafia is following me around.I said ok laughing until one week later I was met at the exit of the apartment complex I was staying at by two big men dressed very nicely.The one man said we want a payment each month or we can go a different route which isn't healthy for you.I packed my things took a taxi to the airport.Be very careful in Varna Mafia is everywhere

Varna has a good historical district but I wouldn't call Varna a great city or fantastic lifestyle. You cannot drink the tap water holes in the streets a quarter size of a Volkswagen beetle irregular transportation options and high crime.

Great city! Fantastic lifestyle. Western Europeans have no idea what they are missing.
