Plovdiv, Varna Fight for Becoming Bulgaria's 2nd Largest City

Date: 20.07.2011

It will be made clear on Thursday whether the southern Bulgarian city of Plovdiv or the "Black Sea capital" Varna is the second most populated city in the country after the capital Sofia.

On Thursday, Bulgaria's National Statistical Institute will disclose its conclusive data gathered from the country's February census. According to the initial data, Plovdiv has a mere 1310 citizens more than Varna. However, the Varna municipality as a whole is more populated, the Dnevnik daily points out.

The census has showed that Bulgaria's population has decreased by over half million people (581 750) since 2001.

Bulgarians in the country are now 7 351 234. Of them nearly 73 % (5 357 633) live in cities and towns and 27 % (1 993 602) live in villages.
