However, since 2015, 2 Lev notes are rare, and 2 lev coins are far more widely used. Coins come in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 stotinki coins and 1 and 2 Lev coins.

Most Bulgarian hotels and stores now accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Diners Club credit cards.

Currency can be exchanged in banks or currency exchange offices.

Electric Outlets

In Bulgaria there are two associated plug types, types C and F. Type C plugs have two round pins and type F plugs have two round pins with two earth clips on the side. Bulgaria operates on a 230V supply voltage and 50Hz.
 
A universal all-in-one travel adapter (can be purchased from retailers like Amazon) will allow you to plug in and charge most electronic devices. Most electronic devices have built-in converters. However, if you plan to use North American appliances like hair dryers, flat irons or curling irons you will need a converter.
