By far Bulgaria’s biggest city, Sofia is one of Europe’s most compact and walk-able capital cities. It’s usually bypassed by tourists heading to the coast or the ski resorts, but they’re missing out on something special. Sofia has a young and dynamic vibe, like a city waking up after decades of slumber, and is becoming a confident and cosmopolitan European capital.
