  • Expensive collection of second hand books, unorganised and mixed in with random nerd tat. Came here looking for a book and eventually found something that appealed, but then waited nearly 10 minutes whilst the cashier had a conversation with someone about their birthdays all whilst I stood there waiting to be served. I'm sorry to say that this seems very much to be one of those places that's just trying to be cool and where if you're not up for a chat about life and just want to buy, you're not wanted as a customer! Ended up giving up and leaving to find another book store, even though that meant trudging through the rain. A waste of my time!!
  • I absolutely love this little store, it has a great collection of used books as well as a bunch of awesome little gifts. Very friendly and helpful salespersons.
  • The most amazing collection of both popular and rare books, comics, games and little souvenirs that are one of a kind in Bulgaria. If you don't know what to get for a gift - the friendly staff will help out with advice, if they don't have what you're looking for - they'll order it for you. And all of that is topped with a charming atmosphere created with an awesome music playlist! Deffinitely a must see!
  • Nice big(ish) book store, has interesting books and albums but has poor collection on cinema in Bulgarian
  • It is one of this places like the L- space in the Unseen university of Terry Prachet's books or the Cemetery of forgotten books from Shadow of the wind of Carlos Ruiz Zafon. It has the same magical feel of good books deliberately accumulated under one roof. Comic books and funny accessories as well. Very tasteful and unique place.

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.
