Although not as popular as other cities in the region, Sofia is gradually becoming part of tourists’ European “to-visit” list.

To get the best out of Sofia, here are some recommended places you cannot miss.

Museums

The city of Sofia has lots of stories to tell, and the best place to learn more about the city’s past and history is through its museums. As a matter of fact, Sofia is home to nearly 30 museums, all of which are unique in their own right.

Home to over 700,000 exhibits, the National History Museum offers visitors an in-depth and complete overview of the past up to present-day Bulgaria. (Bag policy: The museum has a dedicated cloakroom for big bags or luggage. Another option would be to store your things at a Bounce location nearby before entering the museum).

  • The Earth and Man National Museum: One of the world’s biggest mineralogical museums, this facility was founded in 1985 and covers 4000 square meters of land. Inside, you will find several rooms with rare artifacts such as crystals, stones, and other minerals. (Bag policy: There are size limits to the bags that guests may carry inside the venue. To avoid any issues, leave your things with Bounce beforehand.)

Peruse over 130 shops, including both Bulgarian names and international brands that sell everything from wardrobe, shoes, jewelry, homeware and more. The mall is also home to the only IMAX cinema in the city.

They also serve a local variation of different international dishes. Due to its popularity, it's best to book a table at Shtastlivetsa ahead of time.

Locals agree that this is the restaurant to go to if you’re looking for authentic Indian dishes. They also serve beer and cocktails, which can be paired perfectly with your meals.

  • Little Things: Found within a tiny house, you might not initially get why this charming restaurant is an excellent choice for dining in Sofia.
