Sofia: A city of surprises

With a population of close to 1.5 million people, unsurprisingly Sofia is the largest city in Bulgaria. Being also one of the oldest cities in Europe, Sofia is bound to charm you with its timeless beauty. A long and rich history has marked its urban landscape, making it a place where churches from the 3rd century coexist with Soviet-style concrete apartment blocks. Surrounded by three mountains, Sofia is a good choice for a city break and a nature getaway. One thing is certain – you will not be bored here.

Practicalities of Sofia

There are daily scheduled flights from London to Sofia International Airport, but if you prefer, you can also fly to Sofia from Manchester a couple of times per week. The flight takes thee hours and local time is two hours ahead of the UK. Remember that you need some local currency (Bulgarian lev) during your stay. You can exchange currency before your flight to Sofia or at any local bank office. The best way to get to Sofia from the airport is by metro or taxi. Local taxis only accept cash payments. The local language is Bulgarian, but getting around with English is easy.

Sofia’s climate is diverse throughout the year. Winters can be very cold, with temperatures up to -14C, and summers turning the heat of up to 40C. For a more moderate experience, the best time for city breaks in Sofia is April to June or late September to October.
