I have always wanted to visit Sofia and the opportunity came this year. I was visiting Vienna and decided at the last minute to spend a few days there. What an eye-opener it was! The city has much to offer. Lots of historical places to admire. Easy to travel around. The people are friendly. And, above all, quite reasonably cheap. The photo above is considered to be the biggest Orthodox Church in all of Bulgaria. It is called the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral.
