Free Sofia Tour was recommended by the inflight magazine of Qatar Airways – Oryx. The airline is about to start regular flights to Bulgaria’s capital on 14th of September. They decided to mark this occasion by including an article about Sofia and Bulgaria in their August 2011 edition. Read the whole article in English (pages 46-50) or some highlights from it here:
Qatar Airways‘ latest destination is the ancient, enigmatic Bulgarian capital. (page 1)
You can see all of Sofia’s main sights with a free, English-speaking walking tour, leaving twice daily from the Palace of Justice. (page 48)
In Sofia, things are always happening: maybe quickly, often quietly, underground, or out of sight. (page 48)
Such unexpected encounters are part of the daily life in this often-underestimated capital. Too many still associate Bulgaria with strict Communism, Olympic goldmedals in weightlifting, and (more recently) cheap holiday properties. Yet there’s much more to the country and its people. (page 48)
Plovdiv’s atmospheric old town, a network of cobblestoned streets lined with art galleries, cafés, boutique hotels, and classic 19th-century Bulgarian architecture is sublime. (page 50)
Plovdiv is one of the most sophisticated towns in the Balkans, and its historic quarter is remarkable for the living tradition of arts it has sustained. (page 50)
