Alexander Nevski Church: The classic image of Sofia

Sofia is the capital and the largest city in Bulgaria with a population of about 1,300,000 people. A dark communist past and a raipdly changing skyline means that appearances can be deceptive. There is everything you would expect a capital city to have from ancient Roman ruins, shopping to nightlife.

NDK (The National Palace of Culture) and Bulgaria Square

This tour passes through main landmarks in the central part of the city churches, museums and historical buildings. It’s compact to make walking easy and we take you to have lunch in a traditional Bulgarian restaurant. You’ll stroll down Vitosha Street, people watch and peek into a rich and turbulent history.

There are too many hidden gems to mention here but by taking a listen to my Spfia walking tour 3 part podcast with historian, Eric Halsey, you’ll get a taste of what Sofia is all about:
