For many years, Bulgaria was labelled “artisanal” and somewhat “behind the times”, but those days are long gone. The country is modernising at a rapid pace, with Sofia leading the way. Become acquainted with a historic city in development. Sofia, nestled beautifully in the central Balkans, has served as a bridge between Europe and Asia for centuries.
Practical information for your trip to Sofia
The currency in Bulgaria is the Bulgarian lev, which means you can't pay in euros

In Bulgaria, the same plugs are used as in the Netherlands, so you won't have to take a travel adapter with you.
The water in Bulgaria isn't always safe to drink. We therefore recommend buying bottled water.
