36 Hours in Sofia, Bulgaria - NYTimes.com - OMG, This is probably the best travel article on Sofia I've ever read. It even includes Hambara! A old barn/bar in the city center that is only lit by candles (could never exist in the western world due to fire codes). I really need to get back there soon.
Sofia is the capital and largest city of Bulgaria. Sofia is located at the foot of Mount Vitosha in the western part of the country. It occupies a strategic position at the centre of the Balkan Peninsula. Sofia's history spans 2,400 years.
