All news agencies claim the average wage in Bulgaria is “just 400 euros” a month and the average pension is 135 euros. While I don’t doubt that’s the official government statistic, I can assure you that the vast majority of Bulgarians do NOT earn more than 200 euros per month and most of the pensioners receive less than a hundred euros. No matter what the statistics say, that’s the grim reality as unbelievable as it may seem.
