Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria. It is big and lively city with a lot of historical sights. There are a lot of bars, clubs and restaurants you can explore. The city lies just below Vitosha mountain, which is only a short ride distance from the city center. It is a great hiking destination for all outdoor seekers.

Sofia is a city with rich and long history, starting from Eastern Roman times through today. A lot of historical buildings, and parts of the old city fortress and walls, can be seen. The city lies in close proximity to Vitosha mountain, which offers great possibilities for hiking.

It is a relatively small city but with great history. The city offers not only a variety of places to visit but also it is near mountain Vitosha which makes for a great hiking spot. The people are friendly and will make feel at home. There are a lot of museums that will give you a sense of our history and culture.

Sofia is well known for being the home of the National Palace of Culture, the National Opera, the Vasil Levski national stadium, the Serdica Amphitheatre (Serdica is the city’s roman old name). The bulgarian foods are pretty worth checking out. In Bulgaria almost everybody who currently isn’t leaving in Sofia moves there. The city is overpopulated and there isn’t something like a rush hour, it’s not just hours it’s 24/7. The city is really polluted, again because of the overpopulation. People are moving to Sofia only because there is work, not because the city is worth it or something.

Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria. It is a city rich in culture and history. Sofia is the only city in Europe that has places of worship of four different major religions located close to each other. The city lights are spectacular during the night and the days are sunny and perfect for hiking in the nearby mountains. The climate is warm and temperate. Although Bulgarian is the native language in the country, but more than 50 percent of the population of Sofia speaks English.

Sofia is a modern capital. It is one of the oldest cities in the Balkans. A crossroads since ancient Roman times. Modern infrastructure and professional staff make it a safe place for investment. Filled with natural resources and Vitosha mountain ranks the city among the best to live in Eastern Europe.

The city is very beautiful, indeed. It has multicultural environment and diverse opportunities for a great holiday for any tourist visiting. It has a beautiful mountain very close by, called “Vitosha mountain” and that is a great way to relax. visit both the cultural monuments, and the breathtaking nature of both Sofia and Bulgaria.
