Even though it was a rainy day neither our guides nor our guests were scared away by the weather. As promised we were waiting for our honorable 75,000th tourist to arrive without taking notice of the coldness and the wind. Furthermore, we had 13 brave visitors from all over the world, armed with curiosity and prepared to learn more about the city of Sofia.
We did not fail to recognize the symbolic meaning behind the number 13 which is lucky for the 365 Association, since all of its projects in different cities – Sofia, Plovdiv and Varna – have been started on the 13th day of different months.
During the almost five years of its existence the Free Sofia Tour has welcomed tourists from more than 150 countries. They all have enjoyed a walk with us while being presented with the events that took place in the Bulgarian capital at different stages throughout the timeline of history.
For it is often that even locals join us out of curiosity or because they want to show their city to their friends from abroad. To remember their importance to the tour, our 75,000th visitor received a special t-shirt spreading the word to the world with the proud inscription “Trust me, I am the 75,000th guest ” and a certificate to confirm it.
Our whole team would like to say a huge thank you for making our everyday lives a bit more joyful for it is the thousands of smiley faces we greet and the laughter that we steal from you that keep us going and impatient to hopefully meet our guest number 100,000 very soon.
