  • Understand Sofia's Orthodox traditions.


Although somewhat overlooked by the tourists, the capital of Bulgaria is a city drenched in history. From the 2000-year-old ruins to the Ottoman mosques of the Middle Ages and the newer onion-shaped domes of the Orthodox Churches spread all over the city, Sofia is a place that will convince you to stay and explore some more. The heritage of the soviet communist times is undeniable in this city, and we will make sure you understand what it meant to live under the system. It will give a new twist to the motto of Sofia: ”Ever Growing But Never Aging”. Come and see the largest orthodox cathedral in the World, the Alexander Nevski, which has a capacity of 10 thousand people and is the seat of the Patriarch of Bulgaria. Also not to miss is the Saint Sofia Church, the second oldest church in the city and the name giver of the Capital of Bulgaria. Another point of interest we will take you to is the famous Russian Church, on the site of an ancient Turkish Mosque, and the most photographed building in Sofia.
