Dress warm

We are still there even at -10C and guests keep coming. Just make sure you dress warm (gloves, hat, warm socks, etc.) so that you can enjoy better the tour! 🙂 Looking forward to seeing you and showing you around chilly Sofia!

Hidden impressions from Sofia

“During those two hours walking around with a small group I got to know many interesting things that were not in my guidebook!” “Our guide also showed us some trivia that not many people know about Sofia.” Thank you Karin Dalhues for the great blog post about the Free Sofia Tour.

Cheapest city in Europe

Sofia was named the cheapest city in Europe in the Backpacker Index for 2011 by Price of Travel. We believe this is just one of many more reasons to visit 😉 “Europe’s cheapest tourist city is becoming more popular each year, partly due to the low prices for almost everything, but its remote location will still be a problem for most casual travelers.” Daily Backpacker Index: BGN30.30 = US$20.75/day

Happy Liberation Anniversary!

We should not forget that the refusal of the Italian Consul Vito Positano, the French Vice Consul Léandre François René le Gay and the Austro–Hungarian Vice Consul to leave Sofia prevented the Ottoman forces from burning the town. Source: Bulgaria’s Sofia Marks Liberation Anniversary
