Taxi in Sofia - you can take a taxi on the street by just waving a hand to an approaching taxi-car.

Taxis in Sofia sometimes cheat

How to take a taxi in Sofia? Taxi in Sofia! 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.
