  Street Condition in Sofia
by desert_princess

Generally said, street condition in Sofia is terrible ,compared to EU. There are holes in the asphalt, due to the erosion much deeper and bigger than those on the pic. This in the center, not far from where I live, and it shows what lays underneath the asphalt - it's what Sophia streets were all made of - Stones. Much more long lasting as a matter of fact.
So if you intend coming with your own car, I wouldn't consider it a good idea. The possibility to get it stolen if big,due to your non bulgarian number, and if that doesn't happen - you might break it because of the bad street condition. The good news are two : first car repair is not expensive compared to EU, and second taxis are extremely cheap.
