Overview
Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria and the largest city in the country, resembles the unification dream of the Bulgarian nation. Situated exactly in the middle of the state heartlands, Sofia was selected as capital in 1879, just a year after the liberation from the Ottoman rule. Since then the city has grown rapidly and today has approximately a million and a half inhabitants. The ancient name of Sofia is Serdika. Emperor Constantine the Great is believed to have said “Serdica is my Rome”. His words are testimony to the important role the city played, lying at the foot of Vitosha Mountain for more than 2000 years. With our half-day walking tour we will show you the secret gems of Sofia and reveal many stories from its fascinating history.

Met with the guide on time at the rendezvous location. We walked to all the main locations, St George’s rotunda, museum, Russian church and Alexander Nevski church. Plenty of time was allowed for photos and questions. The guide was very knowledgable and passionate about Sofia
