  • Surely the fact that the second floor fixed closed for renovations has diminished the beauty of the place. In fact we talk about 4 rooms, in which there is certainly a lot of Bulgarian culture, but I don't think enough to a tourist hungry for knowledge.

  • And Bulgaria's national costume is interesting, and exhibits include the old household goods. Visit the Museum of art and the same building, so might be good.

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.
