The main administrative division of Bulgaria is into 28 oblasti or provinces. The word oblast or област in the cyrillic script is translated region, province, zone, area, or district. Bulgaria is also divided into north and south regions and six planning regions, but the province is the primary administrative division.
Please submit only sites about provinces in general here. Sites about a specific province should be submitted to that category. Provincial categories are about the province, its municipalities (counties), and other sites of a provincial or county-wide scope, such as businesses or organizations that exist in several locations in the province but not in the other provinces. Sites about organizations and businesses that exist in a particular locality should be submitted to the category for that particular locality if we have one.
