Sofia

Ideal for anyone looking for a slightly different city break; Sofia is one of Europe’s most ancient and beautiful cities. The Bulgarian capital is home to many museums and historical sites including the famous Boyana Chapel which dates back to the 10th century and boasts some of the most impressive eastern European Medieval art in the world. Culture Vultures should also enjoy Sofia’s amazing selection of museums including the National History Museum and the fascinating Earth and Man museum which is home to over 20, 000 exhibits ranging from giant crystals to rare gems. Dining options are at abundance in Sofia but any seafood lovers should head to Captain Cook’s restaurant for a great selection of high quality fish.

10/10 Amazing

10 July 2008

Weekend break to Sofia

I was very impressed by the standard of The Grand Hotel Sofia. The hotel differentiates itself from other hotels by perfectly combining the traditional Bulgaria with all the luxury of a 5 star hotel. It isn't as clinical as some of the other chain hotels. The rooms are incredible spacious and luxurious. The hotel staff are friendly and can't do enough for you. Another important benefit of staying here is its very central location. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as I did.
