Clocks change to winter time on October 30, Sofia Echo reminds us. Bulgaria changes to winter time at 4am on October 30 2011, going back an hour to 3am. Moreover, according to the folklore calendar Saint Demetrius Day (26th of October) is the transition point from autumn into winter. The weather is already colder here so make sure you dress well!
Free Sofia Tour will run every day, twice a day – 11AM and 6PM despite the cold. The evening tour in the winter is spectacular because it gives you a whole new perspective of the city with very well-lid buildings. Moreover, our guides are prepared for any situation and will meet you with a warm smile (and a cup of tea) even in the coldest of weather. Just take a peek at their backpakcs:
We usually do not go inside the buildings. However, the guides of the Sofia free tour are ready do improvise and guarantee the comfort of our guests. There are several opportunities to get warm during the tour (such as the nice hot mineral waters of Sofia) and if the weather gets too bad, a coffee break might also be included. Just make sure you come with the right clothes and leave the rest to us!
