  • Between the two near Sofia University Park. Take the Eagle bridge river itself is very slim. Four Eagle statues are impressive.

  • The bridge got its name and its decoration to commemorate the transit of prisoners of Bulgarian army that had fought against the Turks. I.e. wanted in this way to show that they considered them all great national heroes. It was built over the river Perlobska in 1891 to designs by Vaclav Prosek, with the participation of irzi/Georg Prosek and Iozef Prosek. The Eagles and the lighting is from the factory of Rudolph Philipp Wagner in Vienna. The bridge is from then dedicated to boylgarikoys "Eagles"-exiled, imprisoned, tortured and then freed from a Turkish prison after the Russo-Turkish war (1877 – 1878) because here were officially residents of Sofia in March 1878. West of the bridge begins the most famous Avenue of the city with the large public buildings, while the East side is the entrance to the huge and most beloved Park residents of the capital.

  • A cute but bridge overlooking the city's drains. Walking a great Park with a lake where you can take a boat and take a ride. The pond does not inspire at all in my opinion. Full of games for children and bar areas.

  • That are an nice cross roads in the central of Sofia and a nice bridge , for example the ( Eagle Bridge ) . The Metro station Su . Climent university is near the Eagle Bridge ( 215 - 456 m ) by far . The metro line 3 is coming soon. ( in 2018 )
  • One of the most popular and full with history locations in the Sofia center. A top location on a number of riots that took place in the recent years. If you're there, make sure you also visit the Boris garden.
  • very popular place among young people for casual meetings
  • Spacious and close to many OK establishments and a hospital. Some traffic lights have long waiting times, and with four underpass exits, arranging to meet there can be a hassle.
  • The casual place to meet hook ups or friends or fans before the game at the national stadium. It's a sort of iconic place for Sofia. Usually if you want to protest , this is the place to do so. Close it down and the whole city is in transport collapse, and you have a winning cause, PM is resigning and new election coming ...

Where to stay in Sofia

Set yourself up for easy and convenient access to Sofia's historical core and its most popular tourist sites by staying in an upscale hotel in the city center. While you'll find some hotels on the main boulevard, look for modern hotels off the main streets to keep costs lower. Staying outside the center in the outlying neighborhoods means you'll need to use public transportation, but the network is extensive and accommodation prices farther out are lower. For a real budget-friendly option, consider staying in a hostel; the city boasts a wide array of these, many of which include breakfast.
