Bulgaria Is Loved By The German Pensioners
February 23, 2018 1:09pm CST
Hundreds of German Pensioners settle in Bulgaria. Their high pensions go well here. It's a pity that native Bulgarians leave the country. Bulgaria is the poorest country in the European Union. So the future of Bulgaria is defined as a European retirement home. That's the truth and the result from the prolonged Bulgarian transitional period. It has been established for the last 29 years. And I think the process will be stable in the future too and will go on... Thanks for reading.
Bulgaria is the poorest country in the EU. Still, more and more elderly Germans move to live in the Balkan country - a paradise on the Black Sea coast, writes Die Welt.

You could include in your post how the German old age pensioners are seen by the Bulgarian population. I would also like to know which language they speak with the Bulgarians. The average German doesn't know Bulgarian and I doubt that many Bulgarians speak German. The older generation may know Russian, the younger one English.
The answer presents in the last article sentence: "But life in Bulgaria has its downsides - language is difficult to learn, which leads to limited communication". I saw one German at Sofia Centre and then heard a shopper after him: "He is our neighbor here. He is too rich with his pension. We, Bulgarians, are hired for very low income and low salaries." She looked like envious. I could say philosophically as French people: "But that's the life!"
