Summary/Abstract: The article offers comparative analysis of legislation concerning the law applicable to testament in the different national legal systems. The comparative analysis points to conclusions about the advantages and disadvantages of particular legal solutions, and to recommendations concerning improvements in Bulgarian legislation. Legislative solutions over the past decades have been working towards the increased recognition of a given testament in a large number of states. An example of this is seen in the Hague Convention concerning the law applicable to the form of testamentary dispositions from 1961. Its Article One has been adopted by various national legislations, including the Bulgarian Code of International Private Law. Keeping the above- mentioned in mind, the author reaches the conclusion that the rules of the Bulgarian Code fully correspond to favor validitatis, the basic principle in modern International Private Law, and that for the time being there is no need to make amendments to the Bulgarian law.
