located in a small street between city center and the train/bus station, no more then 7-8 minutes walk (with bags & trolleys).quiet neighborhood.near bakery & minimarket.looks a beat scary when we got there late in the evening , but very nice after all ,and the only thing to be worry about are the dodgy broken sidewalks of sofia. the stuff is very nice and helpful, guide us with all the information we needed and more. the room was not big but comfort and clean.hot water shower 24/7, the furniture are a mixture of old things and you feel like living un an Antique shop (i would not mind Furnish my house with some of those things).upstairs there is a small lounge,with 2 sofas and a tea/coffee Facilities.we set there into the night with our host talking. we prefer to spent our holidays in b&b's and hostels Rather than fancy hotels and places like the rooms are the perfect example why: it's not perfect and luxurious but Hospitable and homey.very good place the stay in sofia!

... synagogue, mosque, Catholic Church and Orthodox Church within two blocks of each other. The guide explained that Sofia once had many more religious minorities, but many left before the Communist government took power. Again, on the tour I encountered protesters. The
former Bulgarian monarchy was overthrown near the end of World War II, and the last prince who ruled Bulgaria was named Simeon. Simeon was actually elected ...
... fields, majestic mountains, good food and life seems to be conducted at a slower pace. As well as the cities and towns, there is much natural beauty to explore and discover. By mid afternoon we were at the border crossing between Macedonia and Bulgaria. A border crossing always involves a stop and our passports checked by a customs officer from the country that we are leaving. Sometimes they collect the passports, take them into a building, stamp them then return them. ...
... from Serbia to Bulgaria, the bus was at a gas station for a brief rest stop and I was excited for the opportunity to pose for pictures with the Bulgarian border police and their HUM-V border jeep:
"May I get a picture with you?" I asked the border police.
The patrol grinned at me, clearly amused at such a request. "Nay" he said while NODDING his head.
"Really?!" I was excited that he was honoring my odd request. I grabbed my camera ...
