The Balkans offer some incredible views, nature, experiences and rich culture. Today, I’ll tell you a bit more about one of the oldest countries in Europe - Bulgaria. Established in 681, this ancient state has had its ups and downs, periods of wealth and peace, as well as war and unrest. These turns however, have made it so incredibly rich with culture and historical insight, that it’s one of the places you can never get bored with. We’re taking a trip to the capital of this beautiful land - the city of Sofia. Its history, being Bulgaria's capital and largest city, spans thousands of years, during which the city has been a cultural and economic center in its region and the Balkans. It has had human settlement all the way back to the Thracians - around 500 BC. Up to this point in time, this has remained a very lively city, with lots to do, see and experience. For this blog post, I am going to give you 10 recommendations on what to do in Sofia, Bulgaria. Keep in mind that these suggestions are not sorted in any way. Each recommendation has its own qualities that make it worth visiting in our opinion – and hopefully there’s something in here for everyone!
