Many may wonder where the richest of the rich like to live. Mansions? Castles? Narnia? It’s like they exist in a completely different dimension sometimes and, to say the least, it’s a bit of a mystery. They can live much more luxurious lives than the average person and we all need something to aim for when becoming this wealthy. Vasil Bojkov , as the richest man in Bulgaria, definitely sets the record for luxurious living and smart use of his money. A peek into how he lives and utilises this money could show the rest of us how the richest people achieved that status and hopefully give us some clues on how we could possibly follow in their footsteps.

Sofia is a huge and wonderful city, buzzing with life and culture. Numerous galleries, museums, churches and more reside there along with an astounding view. The city is buzzing with people from multitudes of different nationalities. Naturally, Bojkov lives in a gorgeous penthouse in the centre of this monumental city. This luxurious penthouse is situated in the most beautiful part of the city and is, of course and not surprisingly, the source of quite a bit of envy.

One of the best places for owning and investing in property is, of course, New York. It is a dazzling city, definitely worthy of being the centre of so many cinematic and other fictional wonders. Bojkov owns a penthouse in New York city which is worth a whopping 15 million dollars; he managed to attain this after becoming a member of the New York Academy of Science in 2002 and since has been very smartly saving and investing in various properties all around the world.

In spite of having his own penthouse in Sofia, a penthouse in New York and numerous properties in London, Bojkov in reality isn’t keen on owning property for personal use. Part of what makes him such a brilliant entrepreneur is his ability to discern what is or isn’t an important asset and spending accordingly- and, honestly, one could expect nothing less from a self-made billionaire.

As Bojkov has realised and taken advantage of, buying properties with investment potential can be extremely useful and is a spectacular way to utilise his money. In fact, he has a preference for investing in this way which could very well be part of how he’s the richest man in Bulgaria today. Real estate comes from many different places, so it is unlikely to lose money by discovering opportunistic property and increasing its value.

Some particularly interesting properties that Bojkov owns are as follows; he has an apartment on Champs Elysee in Paris, Chatoe in the South of France, a villa in Argentina (interestingly, this is where he gained his 3rd Masters degree in History of Art and probably why he has affection for this city), a penthouse in Moscow, a house in Macau in China, a penthouse in Mayfair London, and last but not least, an entire village in Bulgaria. This charming village is on the highest mountain in Bulgaria and is at the highest altitude and is called Chamla. There is much speculation and curiosity surrounding what he will do with this beautiful place since he has yet to start any development there.
