Self-Guided Sofia Tour

There are a number of reasons why one might prefer exploring the city on their own. And while we’re best at guiding walking tours in Sofia and Plovdiv we are also here to help you out if you’ve decided to do things at your own pace and time. If you prefer doing that here’s our suggestion for a self-guided Sofia tour that will take you around the city’s main landmarks. You should be able to cover the route in around two hours. 1. Start: Palace of Justice As with all our tours, the Palace of Justice is the perfect place to begin your journey. It is situated right next to the pedestrian part of Sofia’s main street – The Vitosha Boulevard. Look out for the two lion statues at the very front and you will never miss it. Apart from the countless shops, restaurants, bars and cafes around, the area is also really well connected by tram and metro. Nearest metro station is Serdika. 2. Sveta Nedelya Church You should be […]

Големият Софийски Куиз на Free Sofia Tour – Quiz за София

Екипът на Free Sofia Tour вече 10 години е ангажиран с безплатните турове, които разкриват забележителностите на София. През тези 10 години нашата организация успя да развие и редица други проекти. Това, в което се съсредоточихме през особената 2020-та година е представянето на наследството на нашия град в игрови формат.

30 Years German Reunification – A Special Tour with German Ambassador Christoph Eichhorn

Over the past ten years the guides of the Free Sofia Tour have had the privilege of guiding thousands of guests from all corners of the globe around Sofia’s main landmarks. We’ve also had the chance to welcome some pretty special guests. However, few occasions can compare to a special tour with His Excellency, German ambassador Christoph Eichhorn, dedicated to Germany’s 30th Reunification Anniversary. 30 Jahre Einheit – 30th Anniversary of the German Reunification What a monumental event! Here in Sofia, as part of the celebrations a special tailor-made tour was developed to honor the occasion. It was called “The 5 B’s: Battenberg, Bauhaus, Brutalism, Berlin and Bulgaria: following the steps of the German-Bulgarian history in Sofia.” This was an exclusive one-off event, open to all those curious to learn more about this fascinating topic. This rather unusual tour route and topic sparked a huge interest among the local community. So much that we’ve had to add extra slots and a second tour guide. The tour followed the German – […]

Free Sofia Tour Celebrates its 10th Birthday!

Yesterday was our special day! It was on that day that Free Sofia Tour was born 10 years ago! On the 13th of August 2010 our very first tour was joined by only 1 person. Since then we have walked around Sofia’s main landmarks thousands of times and have welcomed guests from every corner of the globe excited to explore what Bulgaria’s capital has to offer. When our initiative started Sofia was a city that was rarely visited and was largely out of most people’s travelling lists. Over the past 10 years we saw that changing and we hope that our tours played a small part in the process of opening up the city to foreign visitors and spreading the word about its rich history, beautiful landmarks and incredible potential. Happy 10th Birthday!  Free Sofia Tour and the 365 Association Free Sofia Tour was the beginning of the 365 Association. Over the past 10 years our incredible team took part in the development of numerous initiatives, projects, exhibitions and cultural activities […]

Interview with Kaya Kolishka – Bulgarian Symbols

We are very happy to introduce the last of the 5 bright, talented artists we have worked with for our project “Bulgarian Symbols” – the charming Kaya Kolishka. Kaya Kolishka Kaya decided to pick the Bulgarian rose as something traditional and timeless. Her idea was to present this flower in a more stylized and contemporary way and thus create a beautiful illustration, fitting perfectly with the concept of our new line of T-shirts. The rose and especially the rose oil are often compared to liquid gold for a reason. The tradition of picking roses has been deeply embodied in Bulgarian culture and traditions for centuries. Here are a few words from Kaya herself about her work on the project: The Interview Describe yourself with up to 5 words! Trying not to be negative. What are you doing at the moment? Working in a call center and drawing in my free time. Which is/are your color/colors? White like an empty sheet of paper. If you could hire yourself to work for […]

Interview with Mira Miroslavova – Bulgarian Symbols

The idea behind our Association’s newest project – Bulgarian Symbols, was to present the work of 5 talented Bulgarian artists and their vision of widespread Bulgarian symbols. The chosen designs became part of our first merchandise line. In fact, we like to call it a travelling exhibition as it spreads Bulgarian culture around the globe. This time, we would like you to meet Mira Miroslavova! Mira Miroslavova Mira is a talented, upcoming Bulgarian visual artis; a perfectionist in everything she does. She is constantly drawing, portraying the world around her, experimenting with shapes, colors and  visual designs. For her work on “Bulgarian Symbols” she picked the image of a stork. A bird often associated with the local “Martenitsa” tradition. Bulgarians celebrate this holiday every year on the first of march. It is a sign that the new cycle of life is starting with the coming spring. It’s around that time of year that storks fly back from the warmer countries – a true indication that spring has already arrived. Here is […]

Interview with Vyara Boyadjieva – Bulgarian Symbols

It is time for us to introduce you to yet another talented female artist, that has been involved with our Bulgarian Symbols project. It is our Association’s first attempt to present popular Bulgarian symbols in a modern and fashionable way. This time we would like you to meet Vyara Boyadjieva! Vyara Boyadjieva Vyara is originally from Sofia, Bulgaria, but now lives and studies in Cambridge. She is one of those bright minds in the field of illustration and design. For her work in “Bulgarian Symbols” she chose to portrait a visual image of Bulgarian folklore music – one of the undisputed symbols of our country. The illustration itself shows the unity of traditional Bulgarian folklore instruments and the way their sound touches everyone’s heart and soul. This music is part of the Bulgarian national identity, but also reaches far beyond the Bulgarian borders.   You can read a bit more about the idea behind the illustration from the author herself: The Interview Describe yourself using only a few words!
