Don’t worry if you don’t have such a person because there is a group of young professionals in Sofia who would love to show you around for free.” Check out the rest of the article: Sofia: fun, charming and very budget friendly

3-gigapixel photo of Sofia from Vitosha

http://gigasofia.com/ You can see in the distance the St. Alexander Nevsky cathedral which is part of our tour. Unfortunately, we don’t walk to Vitosha Mountain TV Tower (Kopitoto) – one of the places where you could make such panorama photo yourselves. But we visit all other kinds of cool places! Why not check it out yourselves?
