Another thing we like to do in Sofia is explore the residential areas (Matt calls them ‘suburbia’). Mazes of communist era block buildings with courtyards and playgrounds with old men playing cards and drinking coffee and rakia.
Once in a while you can find little cafes, Bulgarians are crazy about cafes.
All streets lead to Vitosha street, the main pedestrian road lined with shops and cafes.
Next post will be about our magical train ride. Many pictures to come….
