Unfortunately, Vidin struggles to bring in revenue. Some cultural activities (the Vidin State Philharmonic Orchestra is an example) that bring tourism money into the community, but often the expenses outweigh the profit. The port that brings tourists to Romania or on Danube cruises also brings in some money.
Salaries in Vidin and all of Bulgaria are rather low. Secretaries tend to earn the lowest income. A couple of manufacturing plants also bring money into the area, but agriculture is the area’s largest industry. Fertile fields help produce many crops (tobacco, cotton/clothing,) that can then be shipped to neighboring countries.
