One of the oldest cities in Europe


Explore Sofia city center with me. One of the oldest cities in Europe will amaze you with its rich history and landmarks.
During the walking tour, we will visit St Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, St Sofia church, the flea market. We will also see the Russian church, the former Royal Palace, 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 and temples of different religions.
In the end, we will go to the main shopping pedestrian street and we will finish the city tour with the National Palace of culture, built as an exhibition centre.
