Bulgaria is a country located on the western coast of the Black Sea, with a rich cultural heritage in music, crafts, and architecture, and over 4000 caves throughout the territory. The climate is continental-mediterranean, with hot summers and snowy winters. Bulgarian is the official language, and tourism is an important aspect of the economy, with increasing numbers of Europeans visiting in the last five years due to the lower cost of living and real estate.
When it comes to buying real estate, statistics show that southern Bulgaria is three times more popular than the north due to its better infrastructure and proximity to Istanbul, only three hours away by car. There are three districts where one can buy property: Lozenets and Sozopol are cozy towns on the Black Sea with excellent ecological conditions; Sunny Beach and Pomorie are the country's best resorts, suitable for year-round living and recreation; Varna and Burgas are the largest cities in Bulgaria, more suitable for living all year round, as smaller resorts may become deserted in the winter when cafes and shops close.
