Dear fellow citizens,
Dear friends of Switzerland,
Welcome to the site of the Embassy of Switzerland in Sofia!
Having taken office in Sofia in the end of August 2018, I am happy to present myself to you from the heart of this charming city. I am also glad to be leading a team of young, polyglot and motivated colleagues, most of them Bulgarian.
Switzerland and Bulgaria are closely related and we are working for the development of our very good bilateral relations: Switzerland is the eight biggest investor in Bulgaria and our commercial exchange is on the rise.
Our friendly relations and cultural exchange are intensive. Tourism is expanding with more and more Swiss people discovering the natural beauties and rich historic and cultural heritage of this country situated at crossroads.
In the context of its support for the development of this region of Europe, Switzerland is accompanying the efforts of the Bulgarian government and society in numerous areas. The issues of security and police cooperation for example are also a priority of this Embassy. You will discover more on our website.
In the situation of a permanent adaptation of the network of Swiss representations abroad to the new developments of the international context, but also to the rationalisations offered by technological progress, a certain part of the activities of this Embassy have been outsourced: consular affairs are followed by the Swiss Embassy in Bucharest and some administrative tasks are accomplished directly in Bern.
Do not hesitate to contact us, we are there for you!
Muriel Berset Kohen
