"A Few Days in Sofia" Sofia by PRhymer

Getting There

I took this trip on my second week off from working in Izmir. My boyfriend flew from the US to meet me in Istanbul, and from there we took the overnight train to Sofia.

Looking Around

We took our time seeing the city. Mostly we walked around randomly and just enjoyed relaxing in the parks and trying different restaurants.

What we Thought

We really loved Sofia. The city is still developing so some things were challenging, for example the street signs were in the Cyrillic alphabet but the tourist map was in the Latin alphabet, but it was fun trying to work around them.

With Bulgaria having recently joined the EU (just over 6 months before we visited) we look forward to returning in the future and seeing the changes.
