Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria, a country of the Balkans. Sofia is one of the oldest capital cities in Europe, Sofia's history dates back to the 8th century BC.
Sofia isn't a big metropolis, but it's a modern, young city, with a variety of onion-domed churches, Ottoman mosques, and Red Army monuments that give it an eclectic and exotic feel. Excavation work carried out during the construction of the metropolis revealed a treasure trove of Roman ruins from nearly 2000 years ago when the city was called 'Serdica'. Away from the buildings and boulevards, vast manicured parks and gardens offer a welcome rest, and the ski slopes and trails of mighty Mount Vitosha are a short bus ride from the center. Home to many of Bulgaria's finest museums, galleries, restaurants and clubs, Sofia can convince you to stay here and explore further.
