Problems and trends in the development of the Bulgarian village
Aleksandar Davchev

Last modified: 2019-01-21


The Bulgarian village has been and always will be a building element in our social-household and economic relations. Despite of the number of problems and weaknesses that go hand in hand with its existence, it is still a living organism which, however, must be treated with more and more care. Undoubtedly, the migration processes, usually expressed in the young people outflow, outlines its modern look and categorize it as not a preferred place for living. The main weaknesses identified as a motive are the lack of opportunities for active social life, complications or lack of access to job vacancies, low income, poor infrastructure, etc. - all categories on which the individual can not influence or radically change. There is a spiraling downward development, where cause-and-effect relationships should be sought precisely in the outflow of people on the one hand and not the possibility of business activity as a function of it on the other. While there are many examples of successful people connected with the Bulgarian village, they are not mass, but rather isolated or specific cases. Undoubtedly, without active, adequate and rapid external interference, these processes will continue and problems will deepen.
