St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral Shopping in Bulgaria has certain specificity. All goods in the country can be divided into two categories: imported and local. Prices of imported clothing, cosmetics, and perfumes are quite high, although, in comparison with European countries, shopping in Bulgaria will still be much cheaper. Local goods are of low price and small variety. In resort towns, you can buy mostly beach clothing, but in them you can find several shopping centers with a decent choice.

The opportunity to bargain for price is an integral part of the whole Balkan culture. However in large shopping centers with a fixed price, an attempt to achieve discounts will be completely inappropriate. The tradition has remained exclusively in the markets. You can ask for a discount in a small souvenir shop, but locals can refuse such a service. The best opportunities for shopping can be found in Sofia, Varna and Burgas. At the resorts, you can also find a lot of interesting things. In beach shops, there is a wide range of souvenirs; products of locals. Such goods are incredibly original, and therefore, during recreation on the sea, you should definitely buy something for yourself. Also, you should definitely look at local markets and bazaars. There you can find unique items at ridiculous prices.

On the Vitosh Boulevard, you can find clothes from the most famous designers from around the world. In local stores are the brands Pierre Cardin, Mango and Ecco. Also on the boulevard Vitosh, is the largest outlet of the capital "Sofia center", where you can find things with a discount of 50-70%.
