With a history reaching back over seven millennia, Sofia is one of Europe’s youngest capitals but oldest cities. Modern Sofia is full of cobblestone boulevards, domed churches, and vast parks, but behind this eclectic city is a history as rich as any capital. The city’s full heritage was only recently brought to light; when bulldozers broke ground to dig a path for the city’s new metro only a decade ago, they unearthed an ancient world, complete with intact Roman streets, houses, churches, and baths dating over 2,000 years back. Add in the fact that the city is also home to some of Bulgaria’s finest museums and restaurants, and you’ll find that Sofia is the perfect balance of history and culture. Your explorations include two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Boyana Church and Rila Monastery.
