History of Astronism in Bulgaria
Astronism is not currently recognised as a valid religious group by the Bulgarian government although freedom of religion for Astronists in the country has been recognised as apathetic. This means that Astronists are generally considered to be free to profess their faith publicly without societal ostracism or fear of repression.
As of December 2020, no Astronist content had been accurately translated into the Bulgarian language meaning that Bulgarian Astronists struggle to access the full range of Astronist content that is available primarily in English.
The current number of Astronists in Bulgaria as of 2020 is recorded as 1,344.
