Gap Year in Bulgaria
With the sharp increase in tourist numbers, Bulgaria does have seasonal jobs for travellers. Up in the glamorous Pirin and Rila mountains, ski jobs are becoming more accessible to none Bulgarians. You can apply for a job working in chalets and hotels before you go or take your chances in person.
With the average Bulgarian salary at £1500 per annum, living essentials are cheap: food and drink is around 2/3 cheaper than the UK, with a pint of beer starting at 40p. Bulgaria produces a lot of its own food, wine and beer, enabling prices to stay low. Its continental climate makes it very pleasant, especially near the coast, for much of the year.
