Sofia Highlights

Just a few reasons you'll fall for this destination​


A trip through time

Sofia has a super rich history that spans seven millennia, making it one of Europe's oldest cities. While its ancient Roman ruins and picture-perfect monasteries tell fascinating stories of times past, the city's youthful and dynamic energy can be felt in the electrifying nightlife, modern galleries and trendy restaurants.


The Centre of the Balkans

Positioned smack bang in the middle of Balkan territory, Sofia is the perfect springboard to explore this hyper diverse and culturally rich region of Europe. Hit the road to North Macedonia’s capital, Skopjie, or swing by the port city of Thessaloniki in Greece, or make a pit stop in Belgrade, Serbia — all of which are within just a few hours drive of the city.


Hot Spring Hoppin'

Too blessed to be stressed. Decompress and soak your worries away in the 700+ thermal springs across the country — the most in Europe after Iceland. Pack a weekend bag, and take a quick trip to Velingrad, Sandanski or the popular nomad hub, Bansko, all famous for their hot spring resorts, spas and hotels.


Nature Untamed

Sitting right at the foot of the majestic Vitosha, Sofia has some serious big mountain energy — making it an ideal base for the outdoors-lover or adventure seeker. We're talking convenient nature getaways in every direction, including a ton of rad hikes, cave, the seven Rila lakes, and access to the Balkans highest peak, Musala, at 2,925m.


oh, we're going to eat

Balkan food gets a bad wrap — there, we said it. Firstly, there are so many different types of cuisines to explore within the Balkan genre. Secondly, restaurants in the region are super affordable, meaning that access to top-quality food experiences is totally attainable. And don't even get us started on the delightfully surprising traditional spirit that is Rakia...


Europes oldest city

If you thought Sofia has history, brace yourself. Just an hour's drive away is the Bulgaria’s cultural capital, the wonderfully charming Plodiv. This 8000 year old town, vibrant and colorful, is considered to be the oldest continuously inhabited city in Europe and one of the oldest in the world. It's truly a can't-miss.
