Sofia is easy to enjoy!
Its understated charm, luscious parks and surprisingly eclectic architecture are clustered within walking distance in a well-kept central area.
Medieval churches are tucked between prime examples of Stalinist architecture. Large modern buildings look down on a 16th Century mosque and Roman ruins. Old-fashioned trams clatter down the streets and a nice open-air café is never too far away.
Sofia is not a city where crowds of tourists rush from one must-see location to another. Mingle with the locals and enjoy the very affordable Bulgarian food and drink favorites. Spend an afternoon sipping a cocktail and enjoying the view of Mount Vitosha.
