A PLACE TO FEEL LIKE HOME

It goes without saying – Bulgaria is a great country. But what is that single thing that makes it a place worth living in, especially for foreigners? We asked this question a Romanian lady and two Italian gentlemen who as part of their international career at UniCredit now have managerial positions in UniCredit Bulbank – the leading bank in the country.

To Vagabond Raluca, Mario and Andrea share what has impressed them most in Bulgaria and compare their opinions on Bulgarian treasures.

Bulgarians make me feel being at home

THE FUTURE OF THE LEGAL INDUSTRY WITH 1LEGAL.NET: BETWEEN DISRUPTIVE TRENDS AND 'DON'T WORRY, BE HAPPY!'

We are still amazed by the rapid change that the digital revolution brought into our lives in a matter of years: from socializing to shopping to security. But we often overlook a crucial aspect of this change: the legal frame within which it takes place. Personal data and intellectual property protection are just two of the many legal issues that appear as humanity travels towards an increasingly digital living.

MANUELA TOTEVA: COMMUNICATE THIS!

In 2020 we all learned to Zoom, from chatting with friends and relatives to attending concerts and conferences, to meeting with recent and prospective business partners. This dramatic shift in communication, from the eye-to-eye to the screen-to-screen, both helped businesses and individuals to deal with the consequences of the lockdown and created a whole new set of anxieties (who has not asked themselves: do I look professional and convincing enough in my kitchen?).

GRAND HOTEL MILLENNIUM: REDEFINING LUXURY HOSPITALITY

Opening a luxury hotel in the summer of 2020 seemed like the definition of a not very well thought idea. Grand Hotel Millennium proved the sceptics wrong. Since this astonishing building that towers over central Sofia opened for guests last June, it has not only changed the cityscape: it also redefined luxury experience for residents and guests of the capital. Grand Hotel Millennium opened stage-by-stage, with limited room capacity.

Humanity has known this for ages, and so does Hollywood. The actors in the Dream Factory have been famed for decades for their well-aligned, shiny smiles. But most of them were not born with perfect teeth. The Hollywood Smile is more often than not the result of the fine work of experienced dentists.

Today, thanks to the progress in dental medicine, everyone can smile the Hollywood way, particularly patients of Impression Dent clinic.

How can we achieve a Hollywood smile?

•Bonding

•Veneers

•Zirconium crowns

RASTIA: DIGITISED FUTURE FOR BULGARIAN RAILWAYS

With the growing demand for increased mobility of people and goods Bulgaria's crossroad position in Europe can be a blessing. So far, however, the country has lagged in modernising its railways. We talk with Lyudmil Ivanov, PhD, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Railway Signalling, Automation, Telecommunication and Industry Association (RASTIA), about how and why Bulgaria should develop its railways.

Dear Mr Ivanov, what is RASTIA and what is its main goal?
