International Book Fair

In this cold weather there’s nothing better than a good book and a warm drink. OK, maybe just one thing – Free Sofia Tour. But we can still do the ‘good book/warm drink’ thing together afterwards 😉 Moreover, Sofia international book fair opens Tuesday at 11:30 am at the National Palace of Culture.

Taxis in Sofia sometimes cheat

Six out of seven taxis in Sofia cheat, claims Automobile Administration deputy chief Atanas Todorov. This information might be an overstatement but still – be careful in Sofia, check the prices in advance and just don’t get into a taxi if the price is more than 0.60-0.70 BGN/km. Just like in any other tourist destinations, scams happen. While there are still ppl careless enough to get into a taxi with a 7BGN/km price, there would be such taxis… Here’s all you need to know about taxis in Sofia.
