Bulgaria, a country known for its stunning beaches and rich cultural heritage, has been named the most depressing place to live in Europe according to a recent poll by Eurostat.
Despite its picturesque seaside towns and villages, Bulgaria ranked at the bottom of the list in terms of life satisfaction, with an average score of just 5.6 out of 10.
Bulgaria’s popularity as a tourist destination remains high, particularly for its beautiful beaches along the Black Sea coast. Sunny Beach, in particular, has been touted as the country’s most popular seaside resort, offering a vibrant nightlife and a range of water sports activities.
Cape Kaliakra, Kavatsite Beach, Nirvana Beach, and Irakli Beach are among the other top-rated beaches in Bulgaria, known for their stunning views and crystal-clear waters.
The capital city, Sofia, has also received praise from travelers for its cultural diversity and affordability as one of Europe’s most budget-friendly city breaks.
Despite its ranking in the poll, Bulgaria continues to attract visitors with its unique blend of Greek, Slavic, and Turkish cultures, making it a fascinating destination for those seeking a diverse cultural experience.
While the poll results may suggest a certain level of dissatisfaction among residents, Bulgaria’s natural beauty and cultural offerings continue to make it an appealing destination for tourists from around the world.
