A lot of people come with zero expectations to Sofia. These people are usually pleasantly surprised.
However, there’s still a group of people that come with the negative attitude. They expecting the city to be very dirty, ugly and dangerous. Now these are the really surprised people.
Very often guests tell us after the tour that during their stay in Sofia their perspective has been turned upside-down. They like how green, beautiful and orderly our city is. And everything bad gets labelled “exotic”. Of course, it’s always different when you live in a city for years and that’s also why it’s so interesting to see Sofia through our guests’ eyes.
