One of the oldest cities in Europe


Explore Sofia city with me. One of the oldest cities in Europe will amaze you with its rich history and landmarks.
During the tour we will visit St Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, St Sofia church and the Antique market. We will make a wish at the Russian church. And next we will see from outside the former Royal Palace and the National Theater which is located in a nice city park, the former private garden of our king.
Next to the governmental buildings while they were building the metro, they found by chance Roman ruins. We will see St Sofia statue, temples of different religions and the hot mineral water spring in the center.
Optional visit to the Museum of Socialist art, (closed on Mondays). It is dedicated to the communism time in Bulgaria. We will see video about lifestyle in the past, statues and posters. Next we get on the metro and we go to see the residential areas built in the 60-70s. Visit a local supermarket. We will finish the tour with the National Palace of Culture and a piece of the Berlin wall.
