#19 of 37 in Sightseeing in Sofia
Landmark Tourist Spot
Take a stroll around , a quaint pedestrian-only neighborhood lined with stalls that offer everything from vintage book editions to CDs. Here you can find literature in both Bulgarian and English languages, as well as English translations of Bulgarian classics. It is said that second-hand copies can be bought at bargain prices. Famous Bulgarian writers Petko and Pencho Slaveykov, a father and a son, lived in this neighborhood, and the street was named after them. You will see their statue, sitting on one of the benches. If you get thirsty from all the shopping, grab a drink at one of the cafes at the site.

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.
