Sofia

Sofia

Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria, and with 1.4 million people it is also its biggest city, lying in the Western part of the country and with several rivers going through it.

As a business center, Sofia is very impressive: Since the Bulgarian boom began, no other city has benefited as much from it Sofia. It's now a shiny Western commerce metropolis with a very international flair and many expats living there. It can't be denied, though, that Sofia is a city of financial contrast: There are some very rich people and certainly there are a lot of poor ones too, many of whom senior citizens who have been unable to partake of Bulgaria's economic upswing. In the city center and some posh neigborhoods, apartment prices have tripled since, and this is quite amazing, 2003.

This shows how great the effect of the Bulgarian free market reforms really was, but is also has a lot to do with Bulgaria's accession to the European Union. The real estate market of the Bulgarian capital is still volatile, and it is widely believed that it still holds great potential. Increasingly the countryside around Sofia is affected by the housing boom, but there are still many under-developed areas in the vicinity.

When talking about Sofia's history and the monuments that connect us with it, one doesn't know where to begin, but definitely the Church of St. George from the fourth (Sofia's oldest building) and the Church of St. Sophia from the sixth century, which gave the city its name, need to be mentioned here.

But there really is a multitude of monuments from all epochs and and appealing old town. The latest addition to the face of Sofia are post-modern skyscrapers - and they alone would make the city and open-air museum for architecture buffs!

Sofia is blessed with a multi-layer nightlife - in fact there is something for everyone's taste: culture of all kinds and amusement of all sorts. And Bulgarian cuisine could well be described as East meets West - a mixture of Turkey and Europe and a good cause for returning again and again.
