Dobrich is twinned with Izmail, Ukraine.
Dobrich District is located in northeastern Bulgaria and occupies most of southern Dobrudja. It falls in the easternmost part of the Danube hilly plain. Geographical factors have favored the preservation of a clean environment. There are no large polluting enterprises from the mining, energy or chemical industries on the territory of the district. Despite the intensive development of agriculture, in the territory of Dobrich there are places untouched by anthropogenic activity.
The town of Dobrich is the administrative center of the district, including the municipalities of Balchik, General Toshevo, Kavarna, Krushari, Tervel and Shabla. The population is over 180 thousand people. The proximity to one of the largest cities in the country – Varna / 50 km / provides a great opportunity for diverse life, development and growth.

Industry & Jobs
Good development in the whole region are trade and services, two are the structural determinants of industry – processing enterprises and light industry companies. Small and medium-sized enterprises are the backbone of the local economy. Construction and transport are developed.
The demographic structure of the region highlights the potential for career development in the field of healthcare and education. The tourism industry provides 3,000 jobs a year.
Agriculture is favored by fertile lands and climatic proximity to the sea. Here is mainly developed agriculture. It is no coincidence that Dobrudja is called “The granary of Bulgaria” – the natural conditions, especially the soil and climate are extremely suitable for growing cereals and some industrial crops – wheat, soybeans, corn, sunflower.
Along the coast of Dobrudja are some of our most beautiful resorts and resort towns and villages – Albena, Rusalka, Balchik, Kavarna, Kranevo. There are still long beaches here, undeveloped and unpolluted by human activity. The further north you go, the more deserted and pristine the beaches are. This is an excellent prerequisite for the development of summer tourism in the region.
Cultural & Historical Heritage
Another reason for the development of tourism here are the many historical and archaeological finds that can be found almost everywhere. The entire coast of Dobrudja was inhabited by ancient Greek colonies, and in the early Middle Ages fortifications were built near some of the first Bulgarian cities. Remains over 120 centuries old have been found near Durankulak Lake. The first open-air prehistoric museum in Bulgaria was founded there. Remains of old towns and fortresses are also found in Balchik, in the area of Yailata, on Cape Kaliakra. From more recent historical times, the Palace of the Romanian Queen Maria in the unique botanical garden in Balchik should be mentioned.
Current rents for housing in the region are between BGN 300 and 500 per month.
