The driver will pick you from your hotel in Skopje or other destination that you will provide us. We will drive to Bulgaria’s capital Sofia (250 km, about 3 hours and 30 minutes drive in one direction). We leave Skopje early in the morning, driving to cross the Macedonian-Bulgarian border. After some short breaks on the way, we are in Sofia. We start the tour from the Archaeological Museum, where there are Thracian, Roman and Medieval artefacts on display in a former mosque dating from 1496. Then we will see the ancient ruins of Serdica, that were discovered during the building of a new metro station. Now partially excavated you can see a small section of eight streets, an early Christian church and a bathhouse from this old Roman city. We walk on to the Alexander Nevski Cathedral church. We will finish in the central square and take a break for lunch. Drive back to Skopje.
