Recall that much depends on the time of the year (in winter, payments are almost always twice as much as in the summer), as well as the “support fee” (in Bulgaria, so-called payment for the maintenance of the territory of your residential complex).
Each LCD has its own prices, on average they are from 15 to 50 euros, but, of course, it happens even higher. In the summer of the communal area, you will cost about 50-60 euros (with a minimum payment for the support fee), but in winter you need to expect that the utilities in Bulgaria will cost you 100 euros / month and above.
