  Street Phone

Favorite thing: This a local street phone. These phones are almost in all major towns. Few are in the rural towns. They come in 3 colors (ones I have seen) Blue, orange & grey. You need to purchase a phone card to use or you can use BGN currency only. Phone cards come in different dominations such as 5, 10 & 20 leva.

Here are some important numbers to have when visiting Bulgaria:

# 0123 - operator for international calls (if no direct phone call is possible)
# 120 - wake up call
# 121 - operator for long-distance calls within the country
# 140 - sending of telegrams
# 144 - telephone information service for office phone numbers
# 145 - telephone information service for home numbers
# 146 - Emergency Road Service
# 150 - Emergency Medical Aid
# 166 - Police/Road patrols
# 175 - weather forecast
# 180 - exact time ("speaking" clock)
