Soviet monuments, enduring Orthodox churches, and ornate Ottoman mosques abound in Sofia.

visit Sofia

Sofia is the capital city of Bulgaria and much more than a transfer point to the crowd-pleasing ski resorts in the south. Its grandiose squares are home to a diversity of architectural styles. With the discovery of a mystifying body of Roman ruins dating back to 2,000 years ago, Sofia now wears its laurels more gloriously than ever. On top of that, modernity blends in perfectly with the classical scenes of history on the mustard-hued streets. Give it a chance and spare a day exploring. Sofia might prove to have just what you are looking for in the Balkans.

The signature landmark of Sofia is Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, rising in utmost brilliance at the heart of the city. It is difficult to miss this Neo-Byzantine monument that resembles a fancy cake with graded, teal, and golden domes. Some more contemporary attractions like the National Art Gallery and the National Theatre invite visitors for a cultural display. There, you can find delightful events to fill your evenings. Sofia also features three UNESCO sites. Each carries a part of its unique character within.

There is a quirky charm about the city that manages to surprise every visitor with a different aspect. For the nature lover, majestic mountain silhouettes surround the center on all four sides. In the well-preserved woodlands of the city’s parks, you can take a stroll and admire a series of modernist and classic monuments. These are not the only artistic surprises, though—there is a spectacle waiting around every corner. From electricity boxes to facades on the main avenues, edgy street art decorates the city and redounds to its youthful climate.
