Plovdiv Airport

A new terminal has been built at the airport in Plovdiv, which is Bulgaria's second largest city. This new terminal is due to open its doors for its first passengers on 1st September. It will be capable of managing 1,000 passengers in a peak hour and a total of 500,000 passengers annually. In the winter season Plovdiv Airport operates daily charter flights with passengers headed to the Bulgarian ski resorts such as Borovets.

Musala

Earlier this month locals celebrated the feast of the Rila Mountains. Large groups of people from Borovets, Samokov, and the surrounding villages, boarded the cable car to make their way up the mountains to celebrate together. From there they walked to the Musala Hut and then the festivities began. The day included barbeques, poetry recitals, and singing from the Samokov Choir.

Chamkoria Chalets - Construction Update

The painting work is well underway and the painting teams are making good progress. The ceilings are being painted white and the walls a lovely cream colour. All chalets have been fully painted at this stage and the painters have now moved onto the apartments.

The laminate floors are also being installed at the moment and some properties already have this work finished. Likewise the wooden stairs & hand rails are being fitted in the chalets and maisonettes.

The scaffolding has been taken down on the chalets as the work has been completed on these buildings. The scaffolding remains on the large apartment building as there is still some external stonework to be finished.

Golf in Bulgaria

Golf was a sport which was banned in Eastern Europe under communist rule, but in the last 20 years there has been a rebirth of the game in the region. Eastern Europe does not yet have the large number of golfers or golf courses like Western Europe but its popularity will increase over time and there are plenty of opportunities in the region.

Bulgaria is geographically very suitable for golf due to its stunning mountain views, nice coastline, and hot yet not extreme summer weather. There are currently six golf courses in Bulgaria and it is moving in the right direction to realise its full potential to become a world class golf destination. Playing golf is definitely on the rise here and golf legend Gary Player, has already realised this potential as his course design company has been working on projects in the region.

Borovets is also expecting to capitalise on the growing popularity of golf. Two new courses are planned as part of the Super Borovets project, one of which is located near our Chamkoria Chalets complex.


Bulgaria Achieves Kyoto Targets

Bulgaria was pleased to announce that it has achieved its targets under the Kyoto Protocol for CO2 emissions. The countrys CO2 emissions reached 52.8M tons in 2008, and they were one of the few EU countries to achieve its targets. Kyoto set Bulgaria a target of an 8% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions based on 1990 statistics, when Bulgarian emissions reached 75M tons. Currently the emissions are about 30% less.

The Kyoto Protocol is a protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC or FCCC), an international environmental treaty with the goal of achieving "stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system."
