Sofia in the transformation period 1990-2004 : trends and prospects

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The transformations of large cities in the course of the transition to a market economy are an issue inadequately studied in Bulgaria. This paper will therefore deal with that issue, and particularly with demographic and economic aspects related to the on-going processes, with the polarization of society, and with prognoses regarding the future development of the Bulgarian capital city. Sofia ranks first in the country in terms of population, numbers employed in the national economy, GDP generated and functions. The development of Sofia during the transformation period is seen to have characteristics of its own, and the coming decades are likely to see the capital maintain its dominance over all urban settlements in Bulgaria, in terms of both demographic potential and functions. - (BJ)
