Miss Universe Bulgaria 2023 is Yuliia Pavlikova

Yuliia Pavlikova was crowned Miss Universe Bulgaria 2023 in a glittering event held on Friday, October 27 in Sofia.

The 30-year-old model succeeds last year's titleholder Kristina Plamenova and will now have to prepare shortly for the 72nd Miss Universe (Miss Universe 2023) in El Salvador this coming November.

Fani Apostolova, Iliana Chakarova, and Stefi Taneva were announced as the first, second, and third runners-up, respectively.

The new Miss Universe Bulgaria was born and raised in Crimea to a Bulgarian father and a Ukrainian mother. She is no stranger to pageantry having joined several pageants in the past including Miss Earth 2021 and Miss Grand International 2022.

"I am so proud of my decision to participate in the events of Miss Universe Bulgaria 2023 and I am certain that I will represent Bulgaria respectfully," she shared online.

"I will have the opportunity at the highest international level to stand for my cause – to help the young generation and develop programs, which will inspire and motivate them to progress in their education, to teach them peacemaking, beauty, and harmony, and how to be innovative in reaching their goals."
