Varna is the best place to live in
For a second consecutive year, Varna wins the competition of Darik radio and the newspaper “24 hours” – “Best city to live in”.
This year special prizes were handed out to four other cities – Sofia, Plovdiv, Veliko Tarnovo and Teteven. The seaside capital won the first place with 276 points, four points more than Plovdiv. The third place was left for the ancient capital Veliko Tarnovo, that had 268 points.
Special prizes were handed out as follows: Plovdiv – for a cultural city, Sofia – for a business city, Veliko Tarnovo – for a beautiful city and Teteven – for ecological city.
In the study, carried out by the two medias, participated a total of 40 cities. They were evaluated on the base of 44 objective and subjective criteria.
Three of the cities in the top ten (Blagoevgrad, Smolyan and Kiustendil) gathered the same amount of points – 238, but scored differently on the final table, according to the maximum ammount of points.
The prestigious ten also included Ruse and Razgrad.
