It is a principal source of information from and about Bulgaria for millions of listeners outside its borders. And this is corroborated by the enormous amount of feedback from people of all continents – people who have been listening to us for years, but also more and more newcomers to Radio Bulgaria. This multimillion listening audience is Radio Bulgaria’s best collective correspondent.
