In a couple of weeks I will be visiting Sofia, the capital city of Bulgaria. I’ll be there on business, but should have some time to explore the city during my stay. I confess that I do not know much about Bulgaria; I even had to check a map to remind myself exactly where it is. (It’s about as east as you can get in Eastern Europe.)
I’ve done a little research on Sofia, and I was delighted to discover that there remain several churches from the period when the city belonged to the Byzantine empire. I will be sure to seek those out if I can. But I am wondering what else I should do or see.
If anyone reading this would like to suggest something to me, I would be most appreciative. Tips about special foods to try or peculiar customs to observe are also welcome.
