What to expect

Spend an afternoon like locals do. Explore Sofia’s fascinating and historical city centre, taste Bulgarian sweets, and indulge in some Bulgarian wine and meze – you know, all in a typical day for locals in Sofia!

Sofia is full of impressive sights, and your Sofia tour will start with your local guide showing you some of the most beautiful ones, including the National Theatre, King’s Palace, and the Presidency, before leading you to a favourite local café.

We’re pretty sure it’s time for a break, so we’ll stop here at the café to sample some Sofia food; the world famous shopska salad, prepared with fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, cheese, and spices. We’ll also taste a cup of traditional Bulgarian ayryan, a drink prepared from yogurt.

Our historical tour of Sofia will continue with some beautiful stops, including the Rotunda St. George, St. Nedelya Church, Banya Bashi Mosque, and the Synagogue, all situated near ‘Small Jerusalem Square’, so named because within five minutes’ walk of the square where you can find very important monuments to three different religions.

From there, it’ll be time for a visit to Central Hali Market, a building with more than a hundred years of history and architecture, and where we’ll taste typical sweets like baklava, and tolumbichki. On this Sofia food tour, you’ll also have the opportunity to buy fresh fruits or vegetables, and we may even have the chance to sample nuts or sausages.

Continuing with the truly local Sofia experience, we’ll catch a ride on the newest underground in Europe to get us to our final stop – a traditional, typical Bulgarian restaurant. Situated in four houses, with a common garden, the restaurant’s architecture and furniture hail from the 19th century, and from four different parts of Bulgaria.

It’s fitting that this restaurant is where we’ll indulge in some fantastic Bulgarian wine along with meze, a local meat platter, filled with lukanka, babek, fillet Elena, and pastarma.

Our Sofia tour ends here, but this restaurant is the perfect place to continue your Bulgarian food fest, with all sorts of fantastic Bulgarian dishes available for you to enjoy.
