Welcome to the website of the Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in Ukraine!
The Republic of Bulgaria is one of the first countries to recognize the independence and sovereignty of Ukraine. The Protocol on the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries entered into force on 13 December 1991.
The Republic of Bulgaria and Ukraine develop traditionally good political relations, built on the foundations of the spiritual, historical, cultural and linguistic proximity between the two nations. An important factor in the bilateral relations is the multitudinous Bulgarian ethnic community in Ukraine, which numbers more than 200 000 and is the sixth biggest community in the country.
Today, we are happy to note that over the last two decades the relations between our countries have developed actively in almost every sphere of mutual interest, series of bilateral visits have been realized, and a solid contractual basis of bilateral cooperation has been formed. A regular dialogue is being conducted between the Bulgarian and Ukrainian ministries and the administrative and business structures at regional level.
The contacts in the sphere of economy and energy, culture and education, as well as between the sister cities and regions are also developing very dynamically. The number of the Ukrainian tourists travelling to Bulgaria is increasing constantly, which strengthens the position of Bulgaria as an attractive destination, a hospitable and sunny host of thousands of tourists from Ukraine.
The Embassy pays substantial attention to its main functions to present and protect the interest of the Republic of Bulgaria and the Bulgarian citizens on the territory of Ukraine. It also works actively for the further intensification of the bilateral contacts at every level and in every sphere.
