Are you happy in Bulgaria?

Hello everyone!

According to the 2016 UN World Happiness Survey, Denmark, Switzerland and Iceland are the happiest countries on earth.

How about you? Are you happy in Bulgaria? Do you feel happier today in your host country than before in your home country? What has contributed to the change?

In your opinion, are locals in Bulgaria happy? How can you tell?

Please share your experience!

Yes, I am perfectly happy here.

Super low taxes, inexpensive high quality restaurants, low cost services, both mountains and seaside, police that don't snoop and who let you get on with your life, and a government that interferes only minimally in day to day life.

These are some of the things that I value in Bulgaria.

I also don't believe those surveys about Denmark and Switzerland. They usually include GDP as a factor in the calculation. How on earth can GDP make me happy?

Incredibly happy and wouldn't go back.  we are almost off grid and it is a wonderful experience.  The neighbours are just lovely and community and family rules here.  Such a lovely change

Very happy, love our life and although we miss family back home, the only thing I would change if I won the lottery would be to fly back more often.  :)

Yes, I'm happy here. All my family (including our two cats) managed to run away from Russia, how could we not be happy?

The first and the main - people. They differ from those in my motherland, here they are honest and well-wishing and here I didn't meet anybody who wants the war.

Clean air (we live in the mountains not far from Sofia) , natural milk, the charming city which seems not to worry much about being beautiful  and this is exactly what does it so attractive.

Safety. We feel it on the roads and in our village. We were lacking it in Russia.

We live here a little bit longer than two months and still have a lot of problems (the language first of all - it takes a lot of time to study it) but we are happy and grateful to Bulgaria for giving us the permission to live here.

Reading this last post reminds me of how different all our up bringing's are.
It is enlightening to read that you are happy, I personally would like to wish you and your family well now and in the future for your new life here in Bulgaria.
Thank you for your honest post.
Regards Steve.

Thank you Steve!
