Summary/Abstract: In the present paper, the volume of goods transported on the Danube River and the participation of Bulgaria in the total freight traffic is traced in a comparative research in order to systematize current problems with the domestic water transport of the country. In the course of the analysis it was found that the Bulgarian river transport carries relatively small volumes of freight, mainly products from the group "Metal ores, peat and other ore and products" and products of agriculture, hunting, forestry and fishing.The problems that have been discovered are caused by two main factors: the nature and the human, which lead to a decrease in traffic on the river in the Bulgarian section.
