Things to see and do in Sofia

The kick-off meeting for one of the European projects that I'm involved with is going to be in Sofia next month (23rd-24th March, for ias's benefit). ias and I are planning to stretch my visit into a short break for both of us, since we haven't had a proper holiday for a while.

Being a very well-travelled bunch of people, I'm sure that some of you have been to Bulgaria before, and being an opinionated bunch, I'm sure you'll have suggestions too. What should be on our must-see list, and what should we steer well clear of?

never been nor can I think of anyone who has - which makes it more exciting (vicariously). I thought you thought you might go to Romania not Bulgaria - cos v helpfully I could get you info on that

nice to see you at the weekend


I liked Sofia, as a city; there is also good skiing in the nearby mountains at this time of year. I have always been a bit intrigued by Plovdiv, which was the capital of the ephemeral state of Eastern Rumelia, but have never been there.

Sorry, another one who hasn't been to Bulgaria (though, like Lil, has been to Romania). And that was long enough ago that I haven't any specific recommendations...

Eastern European countries often have some lovely, lovely old cities though... the ones that weren't razed in the last century, anyways.

Things NOT to see in Sofia

Just dont be standing on a bridge with anyone holding an umbrella near by.

Re: Things NOT to see in Sofia

I must be tired - it's taken me this long to work out what you were referring to.

Re: Things NOT to see in Sofia

Hmm. I had a little rant about that a while back...
