Main Attractions

Sofia’s history and beauty has made it a classic holiday destination for many visitors. The magnificent Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is one of the city’s most renowned attractions. A short walk away from the gold-domed cathedral is the slightly more modest Hagia Sofia Church - one of Bulgaria’s oldest churches – and the Monument to the Unknown Soldier, a tribute to fallen Bulgarian soldiers. Visit the Boyana Church on the city’s outskirts to see its remarkable collection of frescoes. The Earth and Man National Museum has a large, interesting collection of minerals and ceramics. Explore the Royal Palace, now home to both the Ethnographic Museum and the National Art Gallery.

Shopping, Dining and Nightlife

Vitosha Boulevard is Sofia’s main commercial thoroughfare. Both sides are lined with many high-end designer boutiques, including names such as Versace and Armani. Those with a tighter budget may prefer to visit the Ladies Market. The bustling market is crammed with stalls selling ladies clothes, as well as freshly baked bread, traditional pottery and even car parts. Visit Hadjidraganovite Kashti to enjoy traditional Bulgarian food. The menu features plenty of hearty dishes such as stewed pork knuckle and mushroom soup served in a bread bowl. Join Sofia’s hip crowd at the stylish Chervilo and enjoy performances by famous DJs.
