Love & Wine in Sofia

As lovers celebrate St Valentine’s Day, many Bulgarians insist February 14 should be reserved for a traditional Bulgarian celebration – the feast of St. Trifon Zarezan, the patron of vine growing and wine producing. You can choose between two reasons to celebrate tonight after our tour. Or combine them 🙂 Happy St. Valentine’s Day and happy Trifon Zarezan! Source: Bulgarians Happy to Celebrate Both Love and Wine

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?
