... people. Went out, partied, even went to a club (not usually my thing), and stayed out late late. The highlight was at midnight midway over the Danube river on the Gazela bridge when 5 nationalities sang happy birthday to me. Not a birthday I'll soon forget. The following day I went on a tour of the underground bunkers around Belgrade. Very good decision. The tour guide was horrible, and gave far too many irrelevant details about the sights, but it was worth it. ...
... taste of alcohol) that feels almost as though it could be a meal replacement.
Because it wouldn't be a Jaclyn & Brian trip without nearly missing a flight, we made it to the airport with minutes to spare before heading back to Vienna. While we hope to return to Bulgaria someday (having not had the time to venture out into the smaller villages), we probably won't be doing any more back-to-back weekend trips for the duration of our time in Europe. It was a bit ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Rooms Sofia
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!
