Discover the neighborhoods of Sofia
Sofia is a beautifully historic city and one of few that can boast beautiful scenery and a developed ski resort. With the city motto It Grows but Does Not Age, Sofia mixes thousands of years of history with the modern age. Served by Sofia Airport, travelers to this Bulgarian capital have convenient access to the city, and a convenient public transport system ensures easy access to city sites.
Sofia’s history takes a noticeable stance with its stunning display of buildings. None stand out greater than the cultural wonder of the Hagia Sophia Church, but the Banya Bashi Mosque and St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral both put up strong competition. A number of monuments and sites such as the Amphitheater of Serdica beautifully bookmark important milestones in the city’s long and colorful history. In terms of leisurely pastimes, hot and cold mineral springs have drawn visitors for centuries with the lure of healing waters. Spas both old and new are dotted throughout the city, and a number of recreational areas provide cooling respite from the summer heat. Opportunities to go shopping and dining are abundant. Vitosha Boulevard is the main commercial street, and The Mall is the country’s largest and contains a department store, cinema, and a range of restaurants. For souvenirs, sites such as Ethnographic Museum and Alexander Nevski square offer great memorabilia.
