SUMMER CITY BREAK IN SOFIA
If you are in Sofia and have no time to travel in the countryside, to the ski resorts or the Black Sea, you can simply enjoy a city break in the capital. You will be surprised to find how many interesting things you can do here.
There are more and more shopping malls and giant superstores, so you will definately find some great bargains.
Modern cafes and restaurants in the very centre of the city appear on almost every corner. They are somehow hidden from the traffic and suitable for afternoon relaxation in accordance with the latest trends, or traditional Bulgarian. You can find all types of restaurants catering for every taste.
Walking in the summer streets of Sofia is also a pleasant thing to do. Renovated old buildings and churches, cobbled streets and coffee shops together with well-maintained city parks will capture you and make you feel relaxed even in the middle of a busy working day.

We can also recommend you to visit the growing number of wellness centers, which offer a full range of spa therapies, massages, relaxation, aromatherapy and various kinds of sports. Almost every nice hotel and modern administrative building has such facilities.
