Location and Access

Industrial Park Sofia East is located in the outskirts of the capital of Sofia, just north of Trakia highway’s exit from the city. The location is strategic in terms of logistics in a number of significant ways:

  • 25km away from Sofia’s city center - fast access to Bulgaria’s capital and largest market. Sofia is located in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula – a population of over 50 million emerging market residents is accessible within a 500km radius
  • In-between the Trakia and Hemus highways, ensuring seamless servicing of sites in the central and eastern parts of the country
  • Eastern outbound traffic from the park avoids overloaded ring road through direct access to Trakia and route to Hemus via Elin Pelin
  • Within 2km of the planned and approved high-speed connection from Trakia and Hemus highways to be realized in the coming years
  • Immidiate proximity to 3 of 4 Pan European transport corridors, facilitating international inbound and outbound logistics
  • Railroad access option as the international railroad line Sofia-Plovdiv-Istanbul passes in immediate proximity
  • Numerous nearby settlements, ensuring adequate supply of unskilled labor. Proximity to Sofia allows sourcing of qualified staff from the capital
