Bulgaria’s capital city is the perfect combination of vibrant culture and laid back charm. There’s gorgeous architecture, buzzing pavement cafes, and a fully developed ski resort just a hop and skip from the city centre. It may be one of Europe’s oldest cities, but Sofia has plenty of youthful energy and is definitely a city in its prime. Whether you’re visiting for a couple of days en route to the coast, or planning a longer stay in Sofia, Skyscanner brings the city’s best accommodation straight to your fingertips. 

There are lots of great places to stay in Sofia, with a high standard of accommodation available throughout the city. There are trendy backpacker hostels, luxurious hotels, and trendy apartments to choose from. Central Sofia is easy to get around on foot, so if you prefer to avoid public transport it’s a good idea to book a hotel right in the heart of the action. The centre of the city is where all of the main sights are, including the Alexander Nevski Cathedral with its gold dome and the neo-baroque Central Mineral Baths. 

Accommodation in the suburbs is well served by public transport, which runs until midnight. While there are plenty of taxis available in the wee hours of the morning, party animals will prefer to stay close to Vitosha Street. This is where most of Sofia’s nightclubs can be found, although there are lots of great places to explore elsewhere in the city centre too.

Happy to see many murales in the centre of Sofia. Less happy to feel a chilling air at my arrival at 11.00 on May 21st

It's a cheap green capital and you can't visit the over 2000m high mountain.

This is a restaurant surrounded by students’ dorms. It is a traditional Bulgarian places. The music they play is Bulgarian Chalga and Folklore music. THere is live music every Friday and Saturday. The parties there are crazy.
