While you're in this part of the world, why not pay a visit to our Polish friends in Cracow, Wroclaw, Warsaw, Gdansk, or Zakopane? Don't take too long though, as there's more than enough for you to see and do right here in Sofia, Bulgaria!
Sofia has a reputation for beautiful spring and summer days. It would be a shame to stay inside with such lovely weather, so why not head off to the zoo or Sofia Land, or take a stroll around the city? Or if the sun happens to be in retreat, head to one of Sofia's many museums or cathedrals for some enlightening rainy day activities.
