Sofia

My trip to Eastern Europe through Moldova and Rumania brought me to Sofia the Capital of Bulgaria. I took the night train from Bucurest to Sofia.

My time in Sofia was short, 1,5 day to be precisely. Visited some of the main sights like the Orthodox Alexander Nevski Cathedral which is one of the biggest in Europe.
Other sights included : St. Nedelya church,Sofia Statue,the Russian Nikolai church,Sveta Georgi Rotunda,Banya Bashi Mosque,…

My time in Bulgaria was to short, don’t know if I will ever come back to Sofia cause I might check out other cities like Plovdiv or Varna.

What I will not forget is that it was a cold day and the group I was with got hungry, so we went to a typical Bulgarian restaurant not far from the hostel we stayed in and had great food, a mix of union, with checken and mushrooms on a big plate with couple of drinks. By the time we got out ot there it started snowing and it was even colder, went to sleep with frozen fingers but with a full stomach full of mushrooms lol
