According to the Classification of Territorial Units for Statistics in Bulgaria the territory of the country is divided into two statistical zones ‘North and South-East Bulgaria’ and ‘South-West and South Central Bulgaria’ that correspond to level NUTS1 from the EUROSTAT Classification NUTS. They are aggregations from the 6 statistical regions that correspond to the level NUTS2 from NUTS classification.
