Blank Map of Bulgaria with Provinces
The country of Bulgaria is a republic in Europe with a unicameral parliament. The head of government is the prime minister, and the head of state is the president. The country is a member of the European Union, NATO, the Council of Europe, and the United Nations.
The provinces of Bulgaria are the largest administrative regions of the country. Today, Bulgaria is divided into 28 provinces (области, oblasti) corresponding approximately to the 28 districts which were used before 1987.
