    Technical info on Bulgarian phone numbers

    • Country Code:
    • Bulgaria's country code is 359. To call a Bulgarian phone number from outside the country, you need to dial your country's international access code (e.g., 011 for the United States) followed by the country code, and then the local number.
    • Area Codes:
    • Bulgarian area codes are 1 to 2 digits long and represent different regions within the country. Larger cities like Sofia have shorter area codes, while smaller cities and towns have longer area codes. Here are some examples:
    • Sofia: 2
    • Plovdiv: 32
    • Varna: 52
    • Burgas: 56
    • Local Numbers:
    • Local phone numbers in Bulgaria are typically 6 to 7 digits long, excluding the area code. The total number of digits in a Bulgarian phone number, including the area code, is 9. When calling from within Bulgaria, you need to dial the area code followed by the local number.

    The history behind Bulgarian phone numbers

    • Pre-1990s:
    • Before the fall of the communist regime in 1989, Bulgaria had a relatively underdeveloped telecommunications infrastructure. Telephone numbers were generally shorter, and the country's numbering plan was less structured.
    • Early 1990s:
    • As the telecommunications sector began to expand rapidly in the 1990s, the Bulgarian government recognized the need for a more organized and efficient numbering system. In 1993, they introduced a new telephone numbering plan that assigned specific area codes to different regions of the country. This plan used an open dialing format, which meant that local calls could be made without dialing the area code.
    • Late 1990s to early 2000s:
    • The introduction of mobile phones led to further changes in the numbering plan. Mobile numbers were assigned separate area codes, which began with the digit '8'. As the number of mobile phone users grew, additional codes were introduced to accommodate the increased demand.
    • 2003:
    • Bulgaria adopted the European harmonized emergency number 112, which can be dialed free of charge from any phone (landline or mobile) to reach emergency services.
    • 2009:
    • On March 31, 2009, Bulgaria switched to a closed numbering plan, which required the area code to be dialed for all calls, even within the same geographic region. This change aimed to make the numbering plan more efficient and to prepare for the introduction of new services.
    • 2011:
    • In July 2011, Bulgaria adopted the E.164 international numbering plan, which assigned the country code '+359' to all Bulgarian phone numbers. This change aimed to facilitate easier international dialing and to meet global telecommunications standards.

    Need a phone number in Bulgaria

    Jun 13, 2016

    Hello, I need a number in Bulgaria. My company is based in Blagoevgrad, though, and I see that you don’t provide Blagoevgrad numbers. Would it be OK if I purchased a Sofia number, although my company is based in Blagoevgrad?
    And would I still be able to forward calls to other countries, ie Greece, for the rates I saw on your website?

    Best regards,
    Manos K

    NYC phone numbers -Inside scoop

    Nov 01, 2022

    So I thought it would be a neat idea to write a little about popular area codes -their history, availability, technical aspects, and perhaps the occasional pop culture reference.  Given that we started in NYC, it only makes sense to start with the big apple. I’ve been outside the city for a while now so […]

    How our aesthetically pleasing PBX grid makes configuring your call flow effortless (and fun)

    Jul 04, 2022

    Remember those sheets of grid paper they used to hand out in elementary school, the ones you’d use for geometry or to draw graphs. I personally was always attracted to grids, so anytime I got to use them, for example- in school or other places , I was always delighted. Then, around 2012 we released […]

    How caller-ID works when forwarding to a regular phone number
