A Day in the City

A travel blog entry by kenandmaureen


We decided to have a late start to the day after two early starts. Krassi had bought lots of fresh fruit, cherries, strawberries, peaches and apricots at a roadside stop the day before so we enjoyed the fresh fruit for breakfast and bread from the bakery close by. The day was started with a walk to Alexander Nevsky Church in Central Sofia. This amazing Church was beautiful with many icons on display. We also visited the crypt under the church where there was ...

Grand Sofia

A travel blog entry by eastin80


... as the minaret falling is a bad omen (or something along those lines, sorry if I have it a little wrong).

The other interesting part of the tour was that Sofia has a square in which there is a mosque (the only one not destroyed in the 'storm' there are however only allowed to be three prayers calls each day 'as the other ones are too early and too late'???), an Orthodox church, a Catholic church and a Synagogue.
