The Razgrad region is located in the north-eastern section of the Danube plain, with area of 2 637 sq. km. 1 020 sq. miles, or 2,4 % of the total area of Bulgaria The Razgrad region borders with the Rousse, Silistra, Shoumen and Targovishte regions.Razgrad region comprises seven municipalities- Razgrad, Isperih, Kubrat, Zavet, Loznitsa, Samuil and Tsar Kaloyan and 113 settlements, of which there are 6 towns and 107 villages. A larger part of region is located on the Ludogorie plateau. The southern part is hilly, while towards the north it, the land is fused with the Dobroudzha plain and Danubian riverside plains. According to the last census in Bulgaria, which was taken in March of 2001, the population of the Razgrad region is 153 156 inhabitants or 1,9 % of the country total. This represents a decrease of 14 254 from the previous census, a fall of 8,5% while the population of the entire country decreased 6 %.
The average population density is 57,8 inh. per sq.km. This is considerably lower than the average density for the country - 71,9 inh. The municipalities of Razgrad - 98,8 inh. per sq.km. and Isperih - 62,0 inh. per sq.km have above average densities while the remaining municipalities have much lower: 30 - 60 inh. per sq.km.
Infrastructure-gas, water, electricity supply, telecommunications network
Electrification
The electrical power system is relatively well developed and it is in adequate condition, despite that at some places low voltage lines and 20 kV Lines are need of reconstruction and modernization. The electric distribution system has the following characteristics: 11 electric substations - 110/20 kV and 110/6 kV; 20 kV Grids with 1379 km (856 miles) of overhead lines and 192 km (119 miles) of underground lines; 1 358 km (843 miles) overhead and 264 km (164 miles) underground low voltage lines; 1 029 transformer numbers.
Gasification
At this moment Razgrad is just partially gasificated, but in 2002 gasification will come to Isperih with 44 km (27 miles) of planned gas pipes. In Razgrad, the main gas distribution pipe - system with a total length of 20 km (12,5 miles) has been completed. All municipality establishments including the hospital, a number of schools, all kinder-gardens, the dental clinic and the social centres are gasificated.
Water Supply
The municipalities in the region have different levels of water supplies. The Razgrad municipality is oversupplied with drinking water from its own sources and from the "Danube" water supply system . In Isperih, there is a sufficiency of water which provides a good water supply. In Kubrat, the water supply is provided by the deep and shallow drillings, shafts, reservoirs and pumping stations. In Loznitsa, there are 15 sources for drinking water which supply the needs of population. In Zavet, wells make up the water supply system, but the population is not completely satisfied. In Tsar Kaloyan, all settlements have their water supplied through their own sources - catchments and drainages, piping wells and shafts.
Communications
The communication network has different levels of development in the different municipalities, with necessary level of satisfaction in part of them /in Razgrad, Isperih, Kubrat municipalities/, partially built telephone networks in other municipalities /Loznitsa, Zavet / and a completely built telephone network in Tsar Kaloyan municipality. In May 2001, a new Digital Telephone Station with a capacity for 2 050 telephones in Razgrad was introduced.
By density of telephone network, the region is little bellow of the average level for country. On the territory of the region, there are three cellular phone operators: Mobiltel, Globul and RTC / NMT- 450 system/, which cover a larger part of the region.
Logistics-roads, railroads, airports
The roads in the region are of different categories: from sections of state road network / II - and III - category/ to intermunicipality roads / IV - category/. The international road E 70 Rousse - Varna and II category national roads II-49 Tutrakan - Kubrat - Razgrad - Targovishte and II - 23 Rousse - Kubrat - Isperih - Dulovo all pass through the region. The region's density of road network indicator /368 km per 1000 sq.km / exceeds the average value for the country - 336 km per 1000 sq.km
The roads from the international road network / E 70/ and from II - category of state road network are in relatively good condition. The roads from III and IV-category are in adequate condition with asphalt covering and crucial functional fitness. The first ever railway to be opened in Bulgaria in the late 19th century connecting Rousse on the Danube and Varna on the Black Sea passes through the region and provides connections with these important ports, as well as with the Silistra region through Samuil Station and with South Bulgaria through the Kaspichan Station in the neighbouring Shoumen region.
The nearest international airport and seaport are in the city of Varna, which is 136 km (84 miles) away from Razgrad, the centre of the Razgrad region, while the nearest river port and boundary custom in the city of Rousse are 65 km (40 miles) away.
Income of the Population
The level of income is an important problem faced by local economy. Incomes registered are just those earned under labour contracts; however, this does not include some highly paid occupations /advocates, consultants and others/. In order to eliminate this problem, statistical surveys and interviews are being prepared, but respondents do not always provide correct data for their incomes.
The basic source of income for the population in the region remains salaries, pensions and social payments, but because of their very low level, people search for other sources. Generally they include the sale of self-harvested agriculture production /especially in the villages/, rent from land and lending of real estate. It should be noted that the average salary in the private sector for the region is a little higher than the country average due to the manufacturing branch with an average salary 14 % higher than the country average. However, all the remaining branches annual average salary is considerably below the country average.
