My life has taken me many times to Sofia, but I never really had a chance to explore the city. On my trip back to Macedonia I also had the opportunity to go to Sofia once again, and have a short walk in the center.
The capital of Bulgaria is a city which landmarks reflect 2000 years of history. It has been under Greek, Roman, Ottoman and Soviet occupation, and all of them left a mark on the city. Today it is a metropolitan city laying under Vitosha Mountain, the center of the Balkan.
For me it happens that whenever I go it is freezing and very gray and dark and I am always in a rush. I am sure there is a lot to be seen. A very interesting thing happened to me last time. I went to take some photos and whilst waiting Ivaylo Zahariev, the actor from Undercover, a very good Bulgaian Tv Show, entered the shop. It was funny because I’ve seen the show and I really liked it. Take a look if you can. I couldn’t dare of taking a photo with him, but it was nice seeing him in front of me.
I also had a short walk around the center and I know I passed by Ivan Lazov National Theater and National Art Gallery.
I garbed a sandwich in Costa Cafe, and while I was there waiting for my transport a friend of mine contacted me and recommendation that I visit Made in Blue, aparently a great restaurant and food. Unfortunately I didn’t have time for the.
Have you ever been to Sofia? Which are the places you visited and what do you have to recommend?
