Sofia is agreat place to visit. It is one of the oldest ities in Europe and yet it has a young look! Great food and well-kept main streets. The only negative thing is that there is too much traffic. I do hope the authorities will do something about it. Vitosha mountain stands just 5 kilometres south of Sofia and is a fantastic place for hiking! Some things that Bulgarians are tired of hearing are: "this is an old communist country". Wake up, guys, Bulgaria is member of NATO and EU!
