Ok, this material isn’t going to direct you what exactly to see and visit during your Sofia tour. Let’s imagine you’ve got your sightseeing checklist done in advance. Now, like any other place you have never visited (some people even haven’t heard about Sofia, by the way) Bulgaria’s capital might sound to you as a stranger, a mysterious Balkan town or even confusing. In order to save you from all those hesitations you’ve got about the city, we have prepared for you a nice list of valuable tips and tricks to have in mind during your unforgettable Sofia tour.
Don’t Get Frightened By Those Loud Conversations on the Streets
Some tourists might feel a bit frustrated during their Sofia tour as Bulgarians are used to speak loudly. However, this isn’t a sign of aggression or disapproval. Bulgarians are emotional people, who show their excitement out loud and with time you are going to get used to this. Moreover – Bulgarians are in most cases very friendly and helpful with foreigners. Don’t hesitate to ask for a help when looking for some specific attractions when being in the middle of your Sofia tour lost. Plus – you will be surprised how many people here are ready to talk you in several languages, different from the classical English.
If you Want some More Adventurous Sofia Tour, Try the Public Transportation
There are busses, trams, trolleys and even metro in Sofia. You can take any you want, but note that some routes might be confusing, crowds in any of these means of transportation – constantly increasing – but the ticket price per each is very decent. There’s, by the way, an option for a 3-day card to buy that offers you all the lines for free. The card costs only 5 EUR.
Sofia isn’t Expensive, It’s Sometimes even For Free
You will be amazed how cheap your wonderful Sofia Tour might be. Averagely, a dinner in a nice restaurant here will cost you 40 EUR, including the bottle of wine. And Bulgarian wine is worth it to be tasted. All fast food restaurants, on the other side, are so low-cost that you might think they are serving spoilt food, but on the contrary – if you choose traditional Bulgarian bakeries there are lots of authentic specialties you can try here, like banitza, for instance, which is a nicer alternative to a street slice of pizza. As to the free things, know that there plenty of attractions you can see for free, as well as street activities to join also without paying a damn.
Can I expect a Safe Sofia Tour?
Sofia is a pretty safe city. It has its dark streets all people – not only tourists – should avoid, but that might not consider you if you prefer to keep your Sofia tour to the standard attractions in the city centre. By the way, don’t hesitate to experience Sofia nightlife, either. It’s not just safe, but also very cool and rich in events and parties you will love.
