Bansko to Sofia (sightseeing)

One day excursion by car

Event info

Sofia is the capital and largest city of Bulgaria with a population of 1.3 million people. It is located about 150 km from Bansko. Sofia is the administrative, cultural, and economic centre of the country. The capital is also located at the northern foot of the Vitosha Mountain, in the Sofia Valley that is surrounded by mountains on all sides. Three mountain passes lead to the city, which have been key roads since antiquity, connecting the Adriatic Sea and Central Europe with the Black and Aegean Sea.

Sofia is a city with a 7000-year history boasting of some artefacts from the Neolithic period. The first known tribes to settle in Sofia and the valley were the Thracians who established a settlement there in the 7th century BC. Sofia's development as a significant settlement owes much to its central position in the Balkans. The city is also known for its numerous mineral and thermal springs.

On this tour we will visit some of Sofia’s most popular tourist landmarks such as The gold-domed Alexander Nevski Cathedral, The National Theatre, The Russian Church, The late Roman Church of St. George (4th century), The Bulgarian Parliament, the early Byzantine Church of St. Sofia (6th century), etc.
