A little romantic story.

When God created the world...

Bulgarian friends told us a romantic story about how the country came into being.

When God created the world and distributed the lands, the Bulgarians asked:

"Dear God, have you forgotten us?"

God looked around and answered, “Right. I'm sorry... But I'll give you a piece of my own land in return."

We liked this story so much that we wanted to share it with you here. And after many years in this beautiful country, we can only confirm that there is a lot of truth to this legend. Discover with us a diverse country with great nature, friendly people and a wonderful climate.

Interesting facts about Bulgaria.


 Up  every square meter.

Bulgaria has an impressive historical heritage that dates back to ancient times and has shaped the country's history in many ways.

There is a lot to discover. From the Roman theater to ancient bathing establishments to fortresses, castles and palaces. Here you will find some views of these historic buildings. Just click on the photos

and take a stroll.

Car - plane - borders.
Many roads lead to Bulgaria.

Hamburg-Sunny Beach 2,300km

Flight time DE-BG approx. 2.5 hours

Bulgaria is a member of the EU. This means that you can enter the country easily. If you come by car and have a dog with you, for example, you should avoid Serbia. For Serbia, your animal needs an extra document from the veterinary office, which must not be older than 7 days. In this case, it is better to drive via Romania. This also applies if, for example, you move in a car or van.There are no customs checks when you drive through Romania. Click on the photos for more information.

As safe as in Germany - but never without a lawyer.

Your registration in Bulgaria.

Registration - how does it work?

As always in Bulgaria - don't worry. Bulgaria is in  Freedom of establishment applies in the EU and within the EU. So if you finally emigrate from Germany and deregister there, then you should register in Bulgaria. A little hint:

Apply for a new passport in Germany. It is then valid for 10 years. In the first step, the Lichna Karta is valid for 5 years. It will then be extended for another 5 years. And after 10 years in Bulgaria it is valid permanently. You can find the 6 points that you have to fulfill in a description above in the pictures. Just click.Further information?

Doctors, hospitals etc.

Bulgaria - better than you think?

We are not yet of retirement age and have no health problems. But we have a lot of international customers. From their experiences we can report that they never had any major problems with medical care. Real estate in a village in the middle of nowhere is cheaper - but as always in life, everything happens for a reason. One of the reasons is that you have to travel longer to get to the doctor or clinic. We know very well-trained doctors and if we ever needed treatment for dental problems, it was always great and super cheap. You can find more information in the photos above - just click on them.Here are two more links to clinics:


The Bulgarian GmbH.

You can start within 10 days.

A Bulgarian GmbH is called an EOOD with one owner or OOD with shareholders. We have already referred dozens of start-ups to our tax advisors in Burgas. It's quick - usually within 10 working days and with a Bulgarian GmbH you can operate in the EU and worldwide. Pleasant side effect - 10% tax. However, from an annual turnover of 50,000 leva, you will be subject to sales tax. called VAT. The VAT here is 20%. For more information, please click on the Company & field below. Click to register.

From the gym to the outdoors.

Bulgaria offers so much. On the water, on land, in the mountains.

The climate and nature invite you to take part in various sporting activities.

From mountain bike routes, river rafting, martial arts, club sports, fitness studios, sauna, wellness and spa landscapes.

Everything is available in Bulgaria and people like to use it. Classic House Immobilien is also a sponsor of a local football team. And anyone who wants to play in a club is welcome. The Bulgarians are friendly and open-minded and welcome new members. If you have any questions, please write to us.

Farmer's market to shopping mall.

Question from a German: “Can you even shop in Bulgaria?”

Apparently many people in Germany have not yet understood that Bulgaria has developed further economically every year and now offers the same or sometimes better standard of living than Germany. Of course you can shop in Bulgaria. In addition to the great farmers' markets with healthy home-grown fruit and vegetables, all the large supermarkets, hardware stores and Bulgarian companies with great furniture, for example, have been here for a long time. LIDL, ALDI, Penny, Praktiker etc. Everything is available.


More quality of life in Bulgaria?

Costs of living in Bulgaria?

Of course, global price increases and inflation do not stop at Bulgaria. But the common prejudice that Bulgarians are poor and therefore everything is super cheap is no longer true. Almost 90% of Bulgarians own their own real estate. And the average wages are now around €1,200 per month. Nevertheless, life in Bulgaria is only around half as expensive as in Germany. If you have €1,000 available in Bulgaria, then you have the same purchasing power as in Germany with €2,000.


Be careful - new laws are constantly being introduced.

The dream of living by the sea, in the country or in the mountains.

In Bulgaria, too, issues such as environmental protection and coastal protection are becoming increasingly important. Building laws are changing quickly and continue to adapt to EU standards. Nevertheless, dubious brokers still try to sell properties with old building permits. Be careful when doing this. If nothing has been built 3 years after a building application was submitted, the old permit is no longer valid. It must be reapplied for - this can take months or even over a year. Without a fixed road and connection to electricity, Zu. and waste water, you will no longer receive a new permit. Drilling and using wells is now also prohibited outside of more built-up areas. And if a well is approved in town, then there may not be another one within 300m. Get comprehensive advice before purchasing. We are available for this and our lawyer can also advise you. We are just an email away.


Workshop & Co.

Good small workshops, boat moorings and much more.

BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Porsche etc. car dealerships are here. But you don't always find a good workshop straight away, you don't always find good boat moorings straight away. Nevertheless, all of this exists in Bulgaria. You can always find what you're looking for through friendships with locals. We didn't need to ask long questions when we needed a small repair to our car. Friends took us directly to Bosch Service in Nessebar. The boss has worked in Germany for a long time, speaks German fluently, is very experienced and correct. Many of our customers have now visited him. And are totally satisfied with the prices and performance. This also applies to boaters. There are super cheap berths in Bulgaria - e.g. Port of Nessebar - and companies that take care of care and maintenance. Used boats are not cheap in Bulgaria because the market is small. But used cars and many classic cars can be found very cheaply here. However, always take a professional with you when purchasing.


Climate, sea, mountains. As you Like It.

450km from West to East

350km from North to South

Bulgaria is divided into north and south by the Balkan Mountains. There is also the west with the Rila Mountains and the Rhodope Mountains. In winter you can find wonderful ski and winter areas around Bansko or Pamporovo. The climate is a little cooler here. North of the Balkan Mountains there is a Central European climate. You can also find cheaper properties here. But as always in life, everything has a reason. The climate around Nessebar and Burgas up to the borders with Turkey and Greece is Mediterranean. The preferred areas for buying real estate, apart from Sofia & Plovdiv, are in the Burgas area. Bulgarians also like to shop here. 10,008 sales took place in the Burgas-Sveti Vlas area from March 22 to March 23. This is the official notice from the Burgas Chamber of Notaries. As I said - everything has a reason. We enjoy living here and swimming in the sea even at the end of October. Further information? Please feel free to send us an email.
