Introducing holidays to Sofia
Bulgaria’s capital doesn’t just have a pretty name; this underestimated city is bursting with colourful history, culture and nightlife to keep you entertained.
With flights from London taking just two and a half hours, your vibrant Bulgaria holiday to Sofia is nearer than you think!
As one of Europe’s largest cities, there’s plenty to be do on your holidays to Sofia. Roman, Byzantine and medieval Bulgarian buildings have been preserved in the city and mingle with the neo-Baroque and neo-Renaissance buildings in its centre.
Located at the foot of the Vitosha Mountain, the Sofia holiday atmosphere is something special. Further afield, the Rila Monastery is one of Bulgaria’s best loved tourist sights. Located at over 2,700 metres above sea level on the Rila Mountain and surrounded by small mountain rivers, it’s a beautiful spot to retire to from the city.
Sofia holidays offer a lively nightlife, with 16 universities and no restrictive drinking laws, there’s no shortage of parties going on. Along the Vitosha Boulevard and within its many side streets you’ll find a wide variety of cafés, bars or clubs to suit every taste. Or, find live music at Swinging Hall or Backstage. For the brave, why not try the local drink of Boza, which will set you back just under 20 pence for a half-litre! If you’d rather stray from the increasing hordes of stag and hen parties going on in the city, fear not!
