Sofia Holidays

Visitors are charmed by Sofia with its wide boulevards and compact city centre where many of its attractions are clustered. Ornate Alexander Nevsky Church and the exquisite synagogue are a must and make sure you see the sedate changing of the guard at the Presidency. For stunning views over the city take the cable car up Mount Vitosha. Take a picnic with you made up of a mouthwatering selection of bread and cheeses from the Central Market. Try the local wine, enjoy live traditional music in restaurants in restored mansions and take in a concert at the mammoth Soviet-era National Palace of Culture.

Bulgaria's capital city has retrieved its historic charm and position as an exotic, less visited corner of Eastern Europe. Sofia boasts a colourful and ancient collection of churches, mosques and synagogues; the most famous of which is the Alexanda Nevski Church, which has magnificent frescoes. Other religious buildings include the Boyana Church, Banyi Bash Mosque and the Sofia Synagogue, one of the most beautiful in the world.

Sofia's museums are almost exclusively Bulgarian-orientated and are aimed at chronicaling the conflicting fortunes of this once great empire. They can provide a fascinating insight into the Balkan Peninsula and entrance fees are low priced, so there is no excuse not to visit them.

Two museums on the must see list are the Natural History Museum and the National Archaeological Museum. Other sites include Zhensky Bazaar open-air market, Municipal Baths, Royal Palace, TSUM Department Store and Yuzhen Park.
