Air pollution is a serious concern in Bulgaria. Get used to seeing smoke, and be prepared for poor ventilation systems in enclosed areas, such as shopping centers, where smoke may trickle in.
In 2012 Bulgaria introduced a smoking ban prohibiting smoking in all public places including bars, restaurants, clubs, offices and sports stadiums. So, if you're a smoker, keep this law in mind.
Surprising to some, Bulgaria has some really interesting wild animals, in particular, wild dogs – especially in Sofia, where they can be found in Borissova gradina (the Garden of Boris).
They mostly keep to themselves, but do not try to feed them or aggravate them in any way. Rabies is endemic in Bulgaria; so if you are bitten, seek medical treatment immediately.
