Romania & Bulgaria - Sofia (PDF Chapter)
This is the Sofia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Romania & Bulgaria guide-book.
Sofia is no grand metropolis, but overlook it and miss something special – it’s a largely mod-ern, youthful city, with a scattering of onion-domed churches, Ottoman mosques and stubborn Red Army monuments that lend an eclectic, exotic feel.
- take in the scope of Aleksander Nevski Cathedral, with its gleaming gold domes
- bear witness to the Ancient Serdica Complex, a once-great Roman city
- admire Thracian craftsmanship going back 6000 years at the Archaeological Museum
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: History, Sights, Activities, Tours, Festivals & Events, Sleeping, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, around Sofia.
