  • The university! Four stars because there are some old pricks there who should take a long vacation. The architecture is great, interior is not that well preserved considering it is our pride...
  • The well - known university of Sofia. The so called alma-mater to so many people. Cherished and loved through the ages, it is situated in the very centre of the city.
  • Best bulgarian university! Very old and a very beatiful building!

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.
