Global events, local politics, movie titles - what interested Bulgarians in 2022

· The annual ranking of the most searched words on Google is out

· Putin heads the list of searched persons from Bulgaria

· How much is a gram of gold and Turkish lira are among the frequently asked questions

And 2022 passed under the shadow of the coronavirus, and its variants continued to harass us. That's probably why the most frequent searches include: "how much does an antigen test cost", "how to check if I'm under quarantine" and "omicron symptoms". However, the number one topic of the past year, according to the terms searched on Google, is undoubtedly the war in Ukraine. Terms such as "Ukraine", "Russia", and "Putin" are on the list of searches from Bulgaria, and Vladimir Putin himself is also the most searched person for the last 12 months. Only after him are local figures from the news such as Lena Borislavova, Simona Radeva, Kiril Petkov, Vezhdi Rashidov, Slavi Panayotov, and the great tennis player Djokovic is only in ninth place.

Whether because of inflation or the growth in e-commerce - Bulgarians are increasingly looking for the prices of various products online, and the inquiries are more than interesting. From standard questions like "how much does a gram of gold cost" or "how much does an antigen test cost" to surprising new searches like the price of an ostrich egg, a cow or a bathroom renovation.

As usual, major sporting events find a place on the list. This year, the glory did not pass Qatar, which hosts the World Cup of football. The small country is perhaps not so well known to Bulgarians, and that is why Qatar comes in 7th place in the most searched terms.

Traditionally, the local people have a strong interest in reading and cooking. Of the literature, the most interesting for readers are books on self-improvement and psychological help, alongside sensational titles, but at the table, as usual, we stick to the classics - lutenitsa and moussaka again mark a strong presence.

This year, the film titles also make an impression, among which are two sensational Bulgarian films from 2022 - "Petya of my Petya" and "In the heart of the machine", as well as series from the streaming platforms, with the ranking there headed by "Stranger Things", but the new hit series "House of the Dragon" also finds a place.
