Surrounded by sprawling parkland, the capital and largest city of Bulgaria lies at the foot of a popular ski mountain. With a history that stretches over several millennia and rich in artifacts, Sofia is one of Europe’s oldest cities.

Filled with onion-domed churches scattered all over the city, intertwined with architecture from the Ottoman period and stubborn communist era monuments, the city offers an eclectic, exotic feel.

Pleasantly laid-back, with wide boulevards, charming boutiques and social entertainment, it is a largely modern and youthful city with truly electrifying nightlife. Home to some of the finest museums, galleries, restaurants and night clubs, Sofia will persuade you to stick around and explore further.
