About Sofia

The capital of Bulgaria is a relaxed, easy-going city despite being the country's business and cultural centre. Because of its history as part of the Ottoman Empire and under Russian influence, it's also a great blend of east and west. Having a young population also means that Sofia has a vibrant nightlife while it also possesses a host of galleries and museums.
