Abstract: The study briefly reviews the approach of organizing macroseismic investigations in Bulgaria in the course of time, after the national seismological service has been established. Some examples of the fast data collection and assessment and the reinterpretation of the macroseismic data and reprocessing information are discussed. Lessons learnt are presented. The present-day macroseismic practice is traced along its complete path and important issues are pointed out. The survey field methodology currently in use is presented based on a practical example. Our experience proves that seismologists, earthquake engineers and geologists complement each other in the macroseismic field teams.
