Bulgaria becomes hub for digital nomads
Bansko is now believed to have more co-working spaces per capita than pretty much any other place in the world. The town, which boasts some 9,000 inhabitants, is a two-hour drive from the capital, Sofia, and is a popular tourist destination thanks to its ski slopes and hiking paths.
In 2016, a German software designer and his friend opened the first co-working space here. Since then, they've expanded and set up other spaces too. Today, there’s more than half a dozen large co-working spaces, as well as an annual festival for digital nomads that draws hundreds of visitors.
While some just stay for a few weeks or months, others choose to stay much longer, and some are even buying property in the town.
