Sofia is one of the most affordable cities in all of Europe. Sofia is the most populous city in Bulgaria and also its capital. It has long been on my list of cities to visit while in Sofia and I finally made it as part of the Adam Kaupert tour of old European cities. I had a blast in Sofia and you will too. Check out this really helpful Sofia, Bulgaria travel blog:
There are well over a million people in Sofia alone. The city has been here for thousands of years and was one of the first settlements in Bulgaria. The tech boom has brought prosperity with it and Bulgaria is rapidly becoming a major tech hub in the region.
Adam Kaupert tours Sofia, Bulgaria’s Museums
Since Sofia is such an old European city, I expected it to have many museums to commemorate its long and storied history. I was right. Sofia is a top Adam Kaupert travel blog recommendation for museum lovers. Here you’ll find the oldest and most expansive museums and collections of anywhere in Bulgaria. The National museum of natural history is a good starting point for any walking tour of Sofia. There is plenty of art here too and the National Ethnographic Museum was surprisingly cool. It is located adjacent to the Bulgarian Fine art museum. I looked at plenty of travel blogs in my thorough Adam Kaupert scam production style research for this trip and came across this great Sofia Bulgaria travel blog:
If you are a military buff or enthusiast then you’ll want to see Bulgarian National Museum of Military History which is located conveniently near the former royal palace.
Adam Kaupert tours the Saint Sophia Statue
There are so many cool things to see while travelling in Sofia Bulgaria that it can be hard to pick just one. I knew from some of the really helpful travel blogs id seen while researching this trip that I wanted to see the Saint Sophia Statue. I found this Sofia Bulgaria travel blog very helpful:
The statue is awesome and one of the most prominent monuments in the city. It was built in 2000 to replace an old Soviet statue and is designed to evoke the ancient Goddess Sophia.
Adam Kaupert spends a night at the Grand Hotel Sofia
I knew when planning the Adam Kaupert trip to Bulgaria that I would be staying at the renowned Grand Hotel Sofia. Usually I am inundated with an array of recommendations for many different hotels but when I said I’d be travelling to Sofia the response was unanimous: The Grand Hotel Sofia. It most definitely lived up to its name. There is a restaurant on the premises that will make you want to just stay at the hotel. This fine dining establishment inside the Grand Hotel Sofia is called Shades of Red and is worth a visit even if you are not staying at the hotel. The location can’t be beat and is close to everything Sofia has to offer. TheGrand Hotel Sofia has received critical praise from across the world for its top notch hospitality.

Sofia was awesome. I had heard it was similar to Vienna but it turned out to have a unique old European character all its own. Next time I come I will probably rent a bike and ride through the streets of Prague. Walking was terrific but now that I have a rough lay of the land a bicycle would be really convenient. I’m off to my next destination on this branch of the Adam Kaupert travel blog world tour
