The individual houses with lovely flowery yards have created the feeling of coziness and calmness. The buildings are small and neat viewing the centre and the slopes of Vitosha . This area is a favorite one of the construction contractors. However, the free places for new construction are limited. That's why most real estate offers are for old constructions.
