Architecture of the Ages

The city’s landmarks reflect more than 2,000 years of history, including Greek, Roman, Ottoman and Soviet occupation. Medieval Boyana Church has 13th-century frescoes. Built by the Romans in the 4th century, St. George Rotunda Church has medieval and Ottoman decoration dating to the 10th century.

The Land of Tolerance

Sofia is perhaps the only city in Europe that has places of worship of four different major religions located so close to each other. Right in the city center, you can visit an Orthodox church (Saint Nedelya), a mosque (Banya Bashi), a Catholic cathedral (Saint Joseph) and a synagogue (Sofia Synagogue). These buildings form a square called the square of Religious tolerance.

Under the Mountain

Sofia is famous for its nice Vitosha mountain, which can vary from lively and sports-facilitated areas to calm and beautiful campsites. Vitosha, the ancient Scomius or Scombrus, is a mountain massif, on the outskirts of Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. Vitosha is one of the symbols of Sofia and the closest site for hiking, alpinism and skiing. Convenient bus lines and rope ways render the mountain easily accessible.

Twenty-four-hour Party People

The night holds limitless possibilities in Sofia. Start with sunset drinks on a panoramic terrace or dig your heels in the rustic  bar. As darkness falls, live music transforms the city and in the midnight the bars fill.
