Description of Sofia
Bulgaria has for many years been making a name for itself not only as a fantastic destination for international tourists, but a hotbed of activity for savvy property investors. The capital of Bulgaria, Sofia is the largest city in the country and a key economic and cultural centre. It has a history dating back over 7,000 years, the remaining elements of which can today be found curiously nestled with typical communist-era housing blocks and industrial facilities. The industrial and commercial heart of Bulgaria has a surprisingly strong local economy and a mixed housing market where buying to sell and to let both have the potential to bring generous rewards. Sofia's average rent yield tends to hover around the 6 per cent mark, which is more than a little appealing.
