#1 of 125 in Parks in Bulgaria
Ski and hike at Vitosha Mountain, the oldest nature park in the Balkans. The mountain offers huge skiing areas and schools for all levels. The 1930s' meteorological station at the top serves as a shelter for hikers. At a biosphere preserve called the Golden Bridges, a ribbon of huge rocks runs down the mountainside in a "stone river." The mountain is easily accessible via bus lines and a funicular. Note that the weather is very changeable. The hotels have low prices but limited facilities.

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.
