The Embassy of Bulgaria was completed in 1991 by Thanh An 171 Construction Company, belonging to Army Corps No. 11, Ministry of National Defense. In 1982, Vietnamese and Bulgarian Government had signed an agreement on land exchange, purchase and construction of works for diplomatic agency of the two countries. In 1987, after Ministry of Foreign Affairs handed over the parcel of land, Bulgaria signed a contract with the Army Corps No. 11 for construction of an Embassy complex at 300 Kim Mã.
However, after construction was completed, because there was no need to use, Bulgaria Embassy left the work uncultivated for nearly 30 years.
On September 22, 2016 the two governments entered a new real estate agreement regarding diplomatic agency of the two countries for alternative of the former one signed in 1982. Accordingly, the agreement was carried out on May 08, 2018 beginning restoration process of the premises at 300 Kim Mã. The administration area of the building is 1,307m2 on the total land area of 3,243m2.
For nearly three decades of uncultivation, there have been rumors of a haunted building that many people have known when talking about. The mysterious appearance of that day has now been elucidated with a new renovation taking place.
