Discover Sofia with Checkin Accommodation

Visitors heading straight to the coast or the ski resorts often overlook Bulgaria’s pleasingly laid-back capital, but they're missing something special. Sofia is a largely modern, youthful city, with a scattering of onion-domed churches, Ottoman mosques and stubborn Red Army monuments that lend an eclectic, exotic feel. Recent excavation work carried out during construction of the city’s metro unveiled a treasure trove of Roman ruins from nearly 2000 years ago, when the city was called 'Serdica'. Away from the buildings and boulevards, vast parks and manicured gardens offer a welcome respite, and the ski slopes and hiking trails of mighty Mt Vitosha are just a short bus ride from the centre. Home to many of Bulgaria's finest museums, galleries, restaurants and clubs, Sofia may persuade you to stick around and explore further.

  1. AleksanderNevski Cathedral - One of the symbols not just of Sofia but of Bulgaria itself, this massive, awe-inspiring church was built between 1882 and 1912 in memory of the 200,000 Russian soldiers who died fighting for Bulgaria’s independence during the Russo-Turkish War (1877–78). It is named in honour of a 13th-century Russian warrior-prince.
  2. Sveta Sofia Church - Sveta Sofia is one of the capital's oldest churches, and gave the city its name. A subterranean museum houses an ancient necropolis, with 56 tombs and the remains of four other churches. Outside are the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and an eternal flame, and the grave of Ivan Vazov, Bulgaria's most revered writer.
  3. Ivan Vazov House-Museum - Bulgaria’s best-loved author, Ivan Vazov (1850–1921) lived at this house from 1895 until his death. Vazov wrote Under the Yoke, a classic of Bulgarian literature based around the 1876 April Uprising against the Turks. Several rooms have been restored to their early 20th-century appearance and you can even meet Vazov’s beloved pet dog, Bobby, now stuffed.
  4. VasilLevski Memorial - A sombre monument, in the middle of a busy road, dates from 1895 and marks the spot where Bulgarian national hero VasilLevski was hanged in 1873.
  5. Lions Bridge - This late 19th-century landmark bridge, flanked by four large lions, crosses the Vladaya River and connects the northern edge of the city centre with the train and bus stations.
  6. Eagles Bridge - This late 19th-century landmark bridge crosses the Perlovska River and is adorned by four eagles.
  7. National Assembly -This imposing neoclassical palace houses the Bulgarian parliament and dates from the 1880s. It's normally closed to the public. Its likeness is traced on the back of the 20 leva note.
  8. Tomb of the Unknown Soldier - This monument is located on the southern side of Sveta Sofia Church facing the AleksanderNevski Church. An eternal flame meant to commemorate Bulgarian soldiers who died in defence of the nation marks it. The inscription recites a poem by Ivan Vazov; the poet himself is buried in the adjoining park.
  9. Drinking Fountains - Bulgarians queue here throughout the day to fill plastic bottles from the taps of around a dozen fountains, situated in the open air just next to the former Mineral Baths and mosque.

1-    Edo Sushi &Teppanuaki – Nice and very fresh sushi served nicely.

Address: ulitsa “Georgi S. Rakovski” 96, 1000 Sofia, Bulgaria

Tel: +359 87 892 0100

2-    Moma Bulgarian Food & Wine- an update on the traditional mehana, serving typical Bulgarian foods such as grilled meats and meatballs, and wines, but in a more modern and understated interior. The result is one of the best nights out in town. Start off with a shot of rakia (Bulgarian brandy) and a salad, and move on to the ample main courses. Book ahead – this restaurant is popular.

Address: ul. "Solunska" 28, 1000 Sofia, Bulgaria, Tel: +359 88 562 2020

3-    Made in Home - slow-food trend (the name refers to the fact that all items are made in-house). The cooking is eclectic with dollops of Middle Eastern (eg hummus) and Turkish items, as well as ample vegetarian and vegan offerings. The playfully rustic interior feels straight out of a Winnie-the-Pooh book. Reservations essential.

Address: ul. "Angel Kanchev" 30, 1000 Sofia, Bulgaria

Tel: +359 87 688 4014

4-    Rakia Raketa Bar- Unsurprisingly, this rakish communist-era retro bar has a huge selection of rakia (Bulgarian brandy) on hand; before you start working your way down the list, line your stomach with meat-and-cream-heavy snacks and meals. Reservations essential.

Address: bul. "YankoSakazov" 17, 1527 Sofia, Bulgaria, Tel: +359 2 444 6111

5-    The Little Things - It's the little things – knickknacks, toys, books, flowers – that give this charming spot its name, but it's the large portions of delightful, homestyle food that keep locals coming back for more. Mains include handmade meatballs, sinful pastas and creamy fish dishes; whatever you do, try the fig cheesecake.

Address: ul. "Tsar Shishman" 37, 1000 Sofia, Bulgaria, Tel: +359 88 249 0030

Trams are and have always been the optimal transport in the heart of the city since they are regular, fast and for the most part are unaffected by traffic jams.

Trolleybuses are wired just like trams, thus relatively restricted, but are still moving really smoothly.

Buses are the kings of the urban jungle. Big, comfortable and always able to accommodate a few more passengers, they roam every part of the city.

The metro of Sofia is really new, it started operating in 1998, but it has quickly become the favorite means of transportation for citizens.
