Sofia

Have you ever wanted to stroll through a park, shrouded by forest, right in the middle of a city? If so, fly with Austrian Airlines to Sofia, Bulgaria. Sofia is the capital and largest city in Bulgaria and it offers many parks and natural retreats. The area offers an oceanic climate and remains cooler than most other parts of Bulgaria during the summer months. Sofia, a major economic center, offers a variety of activities for visitors. Sofia is an important transportation center, offers plenty of interesting architecture, and a multitude of universities and recreational areas. The city is a wonderful place to enjoy the amenities of a populated area while still being close to the solitude and beauty of nature. The people are kind, the food is good. Fly with Austrian Airlines to Sofia and let us know what you think!

Sights in Sofia

Sofia Synagogue
You won't find a bigger synagogue than this one in the whole Balkan region. Even if you extended your search to all over Europe it would be difficult to find a similarly monumental synagogue. Again, the Austrians left their mark: The building was designed by the architect Friedrich Grünanger, finished in 1909 and inaugurated by Tsar Ferdinand I. Experts immediately see elements of the Vienna Secession, while the ignorant get stuck with the Moorish style.   Up to 1,300 believers would comfortably fit in the synagogue. Yet there are only few regular visitors, because the members of the formerly sizable Jewish community have been dispersed. Those who still live here are primarily non-practicing Jews. Since 1992 the Museum of Jewish History is located in the synagogue.

Motto
The motto is many's favourite place, and after a long workday it's the perfect place to loosen the tie for a bit. The first motto is: Reserve beforehand. After that there is nothing that will come between you and a relatively relaxed evening. Not even the not-so-easy Bulgarian language, because the staff speaks English and happily explains the cryptic menu to you.   The trendsetters of the city meet here for an international dinner: tuna risotto, goat cheese in honey, creative pasta dishes and much more - at a reasonable price.   The food and the atmosphere are in a constant battle with one another: Which of the two lures more guests? Obvious candidates, aside from the delicacies on your plate, the wonderful garden, the cosy sofas and the design furnishing. And after you have finished all the food, it's still much too early to rush off - now the beautiful restaurant turns into a stylish cocktail bar.

If you take a walk through the shopping malls in Sofia you may doubt that Bulgaria once had anything to do with communism. Here capitalism reigns, and the Bulgarians who own the necessary capital enjoy every bit of it.   The City Centre Sofia at the Arsenalski Boulevard is an impressive mall that extends over six floors. Included in the entertainment programme are bars, restaurants and an imposing IMAX cinema. Fashion lovers can buy French fashion at SInequanon and Turkish glass ware such as vases, drinking glasses and bowls. Highlights are the Nolita Shop, with unique fashion for unique women, and the Ra-Re Store, which not only offers clothes but also history and way of life along with it. Morover, there are Kookai, Energie, Fornarina, Stefanel, Missoni and other international brands. Kenvelo is a kind of Czech H&M and a Mecca for Bulgarian youth.

Sofia Inn
If you look for a private alternative to staying at a hotel, check out the Sofia Inn Residence. Beautiful apartments in prime neighbourhoods are on offer. There are no annoying fellow hotel guests, and you can go to have breakfast in your pyjama. The apartments can be rented for short stays, yet they are also a good deal for long vacations and business travellers.   The apartments are fully furnished, in a way that you can receive visitors with no problems. There's a choice between 1 to 3 room apartments, which are professionally cleaned twice a week. In case you still end up missing the hotel feeling including travelling acquaintances, then you can simply linger a little bit in the hallway. All the Sofia Inn Apartments are in the same building! A night in a studio (with sleeping accommodations for two people) starts at 30,- euros.
