Survey, conducted in 16 countries, suggests that few Bulgarians would turn to politicians in the event of a catastrophe.
A survey suggests that Bulgarians are more fearful of sickness than of the economic crisis – 41 and 33 per cent respectively.
The data comes from a survey of 4,903 people, aged 18-49, conducted by GFK Emer for National Geographic in 16 European countries.
The majority of the respondents in the 16 countries, including Bulgarians, agree that Germany, followed by Norway and the UK are the safest countries to flee to in case of an economic disaster.
Greece, Bulgaria, Portugal, Poland and Turkey are at the bottom of that list.
One third of all Bulgarians see unemployment as the biggest threat for the country, 11 per cent most fear crime, 5 per cent fear the justice system, and 3 per cent just fear death.
Just 2 per cent of Bulgarians would count on politicians in case of natural disaster or economic collapse. Some 77 per cent would rather rely on their own strength, 10 per cent would turn to the Church, while one third count on the armed forces to save them.
Donors spent hundreds of thousands of euro building a new museum in Gjirokastra - but the results were questionable and it ultimately closed over an ideological dispute.
