The capital of Bulgaria is one of the oldest cities in Europe. Surrounded by spectacular mountains, Sofia is famous the world over for its abundant hot mineral springs.
The city is named after the fabulous Hagia Sophia. A stroll around the city centre reveals such incredible monuments as Alexander Nevski Cathedral, the Church of St. Nicholas or the National Theatre.
Sofia also boasts unique shopping opportunities. Along Vitosha Boulevard, you can find handmade embroidery, painted wooden articles, leather goods, ceramic crafts and jewels, all at a very reasonable price.
