Bulgaria Life


The population of Bulgaria (1998 estimate) is 8,240,426. The 1985 census population was 8,948,649; the subsequent decrease was largely caused by emigration. Bulgaria has a population density of 74 persons per sq km (192 per sq mi).
The population became increasingly urbanized after 1945, and today 69 percent of the people live in urban areas. About 85 percent of the population is classified as ethnic Bulgarian and about 9 percent is Turkish. Small groups of Armenians, Roma (Gypsies), Greeks, and Macedonian Slavs also inhabit the country.


Bulgarian is the official language and the Cyrillic alphabet is used. English, German, French and Russian are spoken in major tourist resorts and hotels.


The majority of the population are Christian, most of whom adhere to the Eastern Orthodox Church. There is also a significant Muslim minority (9%) and small Roman Catholic and Jewish communities.
