Free Sofia Tour was featured on the Rock Around the Globe blog. Here’s some of the highlights about the tour as well as Sofia and Bulgaria in general:
“We found nothing really noticeable during our first tour in the grey and under renovation city centre. We heard then about a free Sofia tour organized every day by a local NGO at 6pm and we didn’t regret to do it. Sometimes one just needs a different perspective! 😉 So we discovered more about the Bulgarian History: Slavonic and Bulgarian origins of the country, the creation of the Cyrillic alphabet, five centuries of Ottoman domination, the liberation, the communist period and so on!!!”
“The city conserves buildings from its different historical periods and reveals strange similarities between those periods. For example, the Ottomans as well as the communist regime at different level tried to minimize the orthodox religion of the country.”
Thanks for the good words, Axelle & Luis!
