08.11.2008 Vidin - Hidden Potential and Possibilities
Velimira Dimitrova, BULGARIAN PROPERTIESVidin is turning from a town positioned at end of the list of the fast developing Bulgarian towns and cities into a place attracting more and more investments. The reason for that is not only the reviving economy in the town but also the beginning of the long-awaited construction of Danube Bridge 2 which started this year and is expected to finish in 2010.
The excellent economical and infrastructural development of the town, as well as the ever increasing investor interest towards purchasing real estate in the area turn Vidin into one of the main areas of focus in the country. That is why in the beginning of October BULGARIAN PROPERTIES opened its own office in the town of Vidin with the following contact details:
