Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria, but it’s not the type of capital filled with office buildings and skyscrapers. It’s the type of capital that places the highest importance on local culture and preserving its own history. The pace of life here is relaxed, and the residents of this city are happy and accommodating to visitors. The historical heart of Sofia is the Church of St. George, an early Christian red brick rotunda among the preserved ruins of the ancient Roman city of Serdica. Visit St. Alexandar Nevsky Cathedral, a massive and impressive Bulgarian Orthodox cathedral that serves as one of the symbols of Sofia.

Cross the Malashevska River to find yourself in the midst of Sofia’s largest flea market, where you can find everything from handmade clothing to antiques. Don’t miss out on free local walking tour to learn about the city, its history, and its sites.
