  • Bulgarians are sticklers for traditions, and nearly two-thirds of adults remain just a finger  away from anything related to land and nature, Gallup International found in a survey intended to identify features of  contemporary Bulgarian lifestyle 30 years after the start of democratic changes in this country.
  • Over 60 per cent of Bulgarians prefer homemade rakiya, have friends and/or relatives who raise livestock for food and fruit trees, and frequently use homemade preserves, the survey finds.
  • Seventy-seven per cent of Bulgarians regard hanging the washing at the balcony as preferable, although the effect of this practice on urban facades and skyscape is questionable.
