You’ll be surprised... Bulgaria’s quiet capital is set in a picturesque mountainous landscape and probably the best place to get a grasp of Bulgarian history and culture. If you’re into architecture you’ll love Sofia, as it has an eclectic mix of styles from Ancient Greek to Modern.
Whether you want to marvel at historic sights, trek on mountain slopes or enjoy a glass of world-class wine, Sofia offers experiences that are both authentic and affordable. The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is also worth a visit, as it is one of the largest in the Eastern Orthodox world. The Square of Tolerance is also quite remarkable. Featuring a mosque, a Catholic cathedral, an orthodox church and a synagogue within a few minutes’ walk from each other. With the current geopolitical climate featuring a backlash against multiculturalism, a visit here is an important reminder that diversity exists worldwide.
Food is deeply ingrained in Bulgarian culture – it’s a way to enjoy life and connect with other. Rich in flavours, variations, colours and forms, our cuisine is strongly influenced by Middle East but has its own unique charisma. You definitely have to try banitsa and trator whilst in the city and if you like beer, it is conveniently very cheap! It’s also the European Union’s cheapest capital city, so that’s certainly appealing if you’re looking to maximize your budget!
