INVESTORS BUILD NEW MEGA RESORT IN BULGARIA'S RODOPI MOUNTAIN
Investors have started the building of a new mega resort on the south slopes of Snezhanka Mount in Bulgaria's Rodopi Mountain. A total of nine hotels and apartment complexes are under construction in the area of the beautiful Smolyan lakes that are natural monuments.
Among the investors, who has bought building plots in the region are the football star Hristo Stoichkov and the businessman Valentin Zlatev.
It is expected that the new complex will compete with the world famous Pamporovo resort, which is preferred by the ski maniacs. The air in the region is characterized by extremely strong negative ionisation, which allows speedy recovery of the human organism.
The investors guarantee the area will not be overbuilt. They are obliged to construct also wide alleys and big parking places.

The Bulgarian town of Veliko Tarnovo has been included in a ranking compiled by UK newspaper The Independent of the most favourable holiday property markets.
Property near Veliko Tarnovo can be bought for 20 000 to 100 000 pounds sterling. Unlike Bansko and Black Sea towns, Veliko Tarnovo has not been hit by excessive construction, and had beautiful natural scenery and authentic villages, the newspaper said, as quoted by investor.bg.
The report said that prices of family houses varied between 5000 pounds for a small bungalow to 20 000 pounds for a small house needing repairs, to 70 000 and 120 000 pounds for a large family house in a good condition with land.
Countries nearby Bulgaria, including Croatia, Montenegro and Turkey were also included in the newspaper’s selection.
Montenegro’s natural attractions, especially near the sea, draw tourists for longer periods. This was why property prices in the region were high. However, potential buyers could find cheaper houses in the central regions of the country.
European countries included in the selection were Italy, Spain, France and Portugal.
