Summary/Abstract: The text analyses the settlement of Bulgarians in Thessaloniki and raises the question about their number. It compares data from different surveys, in order to emphasize the problems with the census. The study aims to explain why the Bulgarians remained an “invisible” community for a long time. The reason for the contradictory information from different surveys is the difference in the criterions of the officials. Nevertheless, it is certain that the Bulgarian presence in Thessaloniki in the first half of the 19th century was significant. It continued to strengthen during the period before the Balkan Wars, because of the constant flow of Bulgarian population from the small and medium-sized towns towards Thessaloniki.
