Formerly a state connected with the Soviet Union, Bulgaria entered into democracy in 1990, and became a member of the European Union in 2007. Although Bulgaria’s living standards have improved significantly over the years, frequent rallies and demonstrations may be cause for alarm. Pick-pocketing and petty theft are also common occurrences, so be sure to avoid taking any valuables or large amounts of cash out in public.
Healthcare in Bulgaria
Bulgarian physicians and doctors are well trained and on par with other developed countries. The delivery of health services is a combination of government compulsory health insurance and private medical practices. Many Bulgarians will obtain private supplementary coverage. Many facilities are understaffed and cannot treat patients with serious medical problems. Evacuation is likely essential.
