Travel report Sofia
Travel writers describe Sofia as not just the political centre of Bulgaria, but also its cultural capital. The over 5,000-year history of this city is reflected in the large variety of places of interest. Many of these have been converted to museums. The Archaeological Museum, which is located in an old mosque, and the National Art Gallery, which is housed in the former royal palace, are especially worth a visit. No one should miss a visit to Boyana Church, which, with its largely immaculately maintained medieval frescoes, has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. But buildings are not the only attractions on offer in Sofia; the travel guides also recommend walking in the numerous parks of the city.
