Sofia - Bulgarias capital city

Sofia sits at the foot of Massif Vitosha moutain and is the capital city of Bulgaria.

Sofia has a population of just over 1.2 million and is one of the oldest capital cities in Europe as it dates back to the 8th century BC. Like the rest of Bulgaria, Sofia is steeped in history, which can be seen at various places throughout the city.

The rivers Iskar, Perlovska and Vladayska cut through the city at various points and Sofia is also known for the many mineral and thermal springs.

To other Bulgarians people who live in Sofia and it's surrounding area are known as Shoppe.

While the population is in a decline in Bulgaria, the population of Sofia is growing due to people from the poorer regions coming to the capital looking for work.

Plenty of investment opportunities are appearing in Byala and Obzor on the beautiful Black Sea coast in Bulgaria.

This under developed area is attracting a lot of interest due to the wonderful sea views and comparatively flat development land which runs parallel to the coast line. The local councils are working hard to put Byala and Obzor firmly on the map. Both Byala and Obzor are relatively small towns. Byala in particular has only 2500 residents and is still a traditional Bulgarian coastal town.

Plans to link the old marina to a new marina across the Obzor bay have been considered and works are due to start soon, the old marina is also due to be renovated and amusement park developed. Plans for a golf course in the area also will attract tourists to the area making it a potential holiday destination for the future. These new developments can only increase the value of the many plots for individual chalet builds around the area. Most with panoramic views of the bay and open sea. On the outskirts of Byala there are a number of different sized plots all with a sea view, some first in line to the cliff face. Various sized plots and various prices. Again all these plots are charted by the local government and are regulated.

If you are looking for an area in the coast away from the already crowded resorts in and around Varna or Bourgas, Byala could be the perfect choice to build your property in Bulgaria. Likewise if you are in a position to invest in a larger plot Byala again could be the perfect choice with a variety of prices to suit everybody.

Have a look at the wide range of property and land opportunities there are on our web site
