SOFIA - THE CITY OF WISDOM

Regarded as one of EU’s newest capitals Sofia, or Serdica as Thracians used to call it, is in fact one of the oldest cities in Europe. Established around the 7-th century BC Sofia has seen both glory and decline, destruction through fire and rebuilding from scratch, has been given many different names, has been ruled by many different leaders and has spoken many different languages.

Sofia is a pure treasure - it’s the only city in Europe where you can see major religious temples built right next to each other. Orthodox and catholic churches, pagan temples, mosques and synagogues - Sofia has it all within walking distance. The city still holds on to remnants from its oriental, Roman and communist architecture, hidden in-between the glitzy shopping malls and luxurious hotels. It is also surprisingly green, with huge parks dotted around the city centre and ski slopes and hiking trails of the mighty Mount Vitosha right on its doorstep.
