August 23, 2021 Franklyn Hardiman

Surrounded by sprawling parkland, Sofia, the capital and largest city of the Republic of Bulgaria, lies at the foot of popular ski mountain, Vitosha. With a history that stretches over seven millennia, ruin-rich Sofia is one of Europe's oldest cities. The National Historical Museum is one of Eastern Europe's most extensive. Wide, cobblestone boulevards, charming boutiques and truly electrifying nightlife star in this city of 1.3 million. Trolleys, trams and buses traverse the dynamic city.

Went there June 2019 with a 22 year-old and 3.5 year-old. The little one didn't get much of it, but had lots of fun, especially in the baby area. The big one loved it! Muzeiko is an amazing kids' science museum that not many countries in Europe have! Many different areas with different science fields, enough opportunity to play while exploring and learning. Also the food in the canteen was quite good especially for a museum. Love love love it! Would come back any time again!

Seven Rila Lakes

Reviewed By 225evgenim - Sofia, Bulgaria

Magnificent nature! The seven Rila lakes are recognized as the most energetic place in the world. Great views from a height of 2500 m. The route is extreme. You need good equipment. The sun is strong and you need sunscreen. Many people visit the Rila lakes in the summer.

The Red Flat

The Red Flat is not a typical museum, but an interactive experience and a time machine aiming to send you back to the 1980’s - the last stage of the communist regime in Bulgaria. By entering the flat, you will visit the home of an average family and discover what everyday life was like for ordinary Bulgarians during the Cold War.

A Bulgarian Orthodox cathedral in Sofia (Bg). Built in Neo-Byzantine style, it serves as the cathedral church of the Patriarch of Bulgaria and it is one of the largest Christian church buildings, as well as one of Sofia's symbols and primary tourist attractions. There is a museum of Bulgarian icons inside the cathedral crypt, part of the National Art Gallery.

Vitosha Mountain

Reviewed By Sharpehunter - Island of Malta, Malta

When you arrive in Sofia your attention is immediately drawn to the Mount Vitosha range which stands tall in the backdrop. Beautiful snow-capped mountains fringed by lush green mixed woodland and forest draws you in immediately. Easily accessible by car, buses and trams, you can even jump the various chairlifts to get higher up the range. My favourite starting point for any hike in Vitosha is Boyana Church. From here there is a myriad of routes to choose of varying difficulty all clearly marked. Take your pick from The Golden Bridges, Boyana Lake and Boyana Waterfall, or just choose a path that looks good, hit the trail and go with the flow. Advisable to wear good walking shoes, the terrain is very diverse and changeable and varies from easy-going paths to steep rocky (and slippy) climbs. Always take plenty of water, make sure you have some food. There are lots of mountain huts that serve great traditional Bulgarian food, beers, wines and soft drinks, but you have to get to them first. Fabulous days out, I still haven't done the actual Black Peak yet, but it's on the agenda.

National Institute of Archaeology with Museum

The National Institute of Archaeology with Museum at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences covers the complete study of the culture of tribes and peoples who have occupied present day Bulgaria from the remote past until the 18th century. The Museum of Archaeology hosts the most numerous collections in Bulgaria and its exhibitions reveal it as one of the most important centers in the country for promotion of the cultural heritage of present day Bulgaria. NIAM-BAS was established in 1949 as a follower and successor of the Department of Valuables - part of the Library established in Sofia in 1879 and reformed into a National Museum in 1892 - and the Bulgarian Institute of Archaeology (1921), which was the first academic institute in Bulgaria.

One of Bulgaria's first museums (set up in the 1890s) housing a collection of monuments ranging from finds from the stone and bronze age through antiquity and to medieval times. The building itself is a former mosque, and was turned to use as a museum after Bulgaria became self-governing (in 1878). The museum building is integrated into the new building of the Bulgarian National Bank (the white building on the left of the photo), dating from the late 1930s.

Park Vrana

Reviewed By anastassiu - Sofia, Bulgaria

Big enough, far from the city centre, very well maintained. Probably the best park in Sofia. Never too many people, maybe because on the entrance fee. Never took the guided tours, but I heard there are nice. Quite a few things to see as well.
