Actually I live here for 3 years now…and I’m quiite used to this city I can say.. As the biggest city in Bulgaria it provides a lot of opportunities- for fun, for business or just to spend a few hours. But the citizens of the city are too many for its infrasructure, it’s overcrowded and very very dirty. The life here is much more stressful than any other bulgarian city. But anyway- “it grows but never gets old” :)over 6 years ago

juxtaposition—neoclassical late 1800’s mixes with smart shops, suv’s, mafia and old churches. the choir at alexander nevsky cathedral is heavenly. street corner pizza with corn, ketchup and mayonaise, espresso in little plastic cups, rakia. begging gypsies, packs of roaming dogs, a faded opera house, inexpensive classical music recitals, chalga clubs, ndk, vitosha—the street, the mountain. a bottle of mavrud, women’s market, doctor’s garden, boris garden, the icon museum in the basement of the cathedral.over 7 years ago
Mostly I was able to walk around the city center for a couple of hours, during the day and then at night. I didn’t have time to visit the museums, but there were several that I wish I could have gone to. I was surprised to see several Roman ruins!over 7 years ago
