The average salary for teaching is low by Western European standards although the work week is shorter. Teachers employed here will find more time to travel. Rent will occasionally be subsidized. There are many volunteer positions. There are also opportunities for work in the Black Sea resort towns.
The Bulgars, a Central Asian Turkic tribe, merged with the local Slavic inhabitants in the late 7th century to form the first Bulgarian state. In succeeding centuries, Bulgaria struggled with the Byzantine Empire to assert its place in the Balkans, but by the end of the 14th century the country was overrun by the Ottoman Turks. Northern Bulgaria attained autonomy in 1878 and all of Bulgaria became independent from the Ottoman Empire in 1908. Having fought on the losing side in both World Wars, Bulgaria fell within the Soviet sphere of influence and became a People's Republic in 1946. Communist domination ended in 1990, when Bulgaria held its first multiparty election since World War II and began the contentious process of moving toward political democracy and a market economy while combating inflation, unemployment, corruption, and crime. Today, reforms and democratization keep Bulgaria on a path toward eventual integration into the EU. The country joined NATO in 2004.
Bulgaria, officially the Republic of Bulgaria, is a country in southeastern Europe. It borders the Black Sea to the east, Greece and Turkey to the south, Serbia and the Republic of Macedonia to the west, and Romania to the north, mostly along the Danube.
Bulgaria is an active member of NATO and will join the European Union on January 1, 2007. The country has been a member of the UN since 1955, and is a founding member of the OSCE. Bulgaria has a base in Antarctica, and as a Consultative Party to the Antarctic Treaty takes part in the governing of the territories situated south of 60* south latitude.
