Very nice and very different to what I have seen before by nafcom
Have been to Sofia for visiting a friend this summer in 2008 and it was Very nice and very different to what I have seen before. Apart from the nice museums, galleries and the very different style of a capital city (in other countries I didn’t spot so much differences).
Amazing is the big contrast of oldschool and hi-tech being very close to each other, e.g. the buildings in one street or the new subway station in contrast to the tram. The trams however are cool, I liked their sound when the doors opens and closes =)
They also got a huge cinema building and the picture quality blew me away.
So far everybody there has been pretty nice to me, cannot complain to that either =)
All in all it was a very nice stay, especially interesting because things work but they are very different but interesting.
Even the airport in Sofia (the new part) is a small sensation of its own.
Oh and not to forget the food, very hot and spicy, absolutely my taste and delicious plus also been very different to what I a used to have tasted. And many people seem to make it even more devil like by putting extra salt on it afterwards because of claiming it was “too light” in its taste.
Also watch out for the buttons which you can find in the old subways: In contrast to other countries those aren’t the stop buttons but the “Panic” aka “Emergency Break” buttons!!over 4 years ago
