Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, is a popular destination for those seeking a low cost city break. One of the oldest cities in Europe, it has a wide range of architectural styles and offers a host of sightseeing opportunities and tourist attractions. Mount Vitosha lies as a backdrop to the city and is close enough for visitors to enjoy a change of scene, walking in the hills in summer or skiing in the winter. Sofia is a very green city with acres of parks and gardens, ideal for when visitors wish to take a break from city tours and shopping and just enjoy the sunshine. The city has its fair share of churches, the most impressive being the Aleksandar Nevski cathedral. The oldest church, the St. Georges Rotunda has its origins in the fourth century and has been a pagan temple, a muslim mosque and is now a christian place of worship. There are several important museums and art galleries in the city including those devoted to fine art, to natural history and to military history, to name but a few.
Cheap Sofia city breaks are popular with couples of all ages and also with groups of young adults. Since the town has a reputation as being a place to party, it attracts stag and hen groups. Bulgaria was always noted for its affordability and Sofia accommodation remains competitively priced. Standards are high and the quality of service is good. Restaurants provide a wide range of menu that caters for all tastes and budgets. The wine to accompany your meal is as pleasing to the palate as it is to the pocket. When it comes to evening entertainment you are spoilt for choice. It is easy to find a venue for a cultural evening at the theatre or opera as easily as it is to find jazz clubs or nightclubs. Those who enjoy holiday shopping should take themselves to the Vitosha Boulevard or the malls in the city centre where they'll find boutiques and specialist stores. If you are looking for souvenirs, try the antique market in Alexander Nevski Square.
