Happy. A very very happy community. So far anybody I talked to is very glad to be here. Embassy is really nice. - Aug 16, 2014
On the smaller side. You really don't see many expats or other foreigners on your day-to-day activities, but they are out there somewhere. - Jun 3, 2011

There are a few Americans (mainly embassy personnel and a growing number of business people).There is a large British community that has retired here. Other major European languages and even Japanese are heard frequently in the streets of Sofia due to the growing number of tourists visiting this country. - Feb 9, 2008
