Did you know Sofia is one of the oldest capitals in Europe? Just imagine the amount of (secret) stories it has to tell. On this self-guided walk, you’ll discover poetry on the walls, be amused by a peculiar story of gold figures on the National Theatre, and refresh by the mineral water springs. Explore Sofia’s centre by solving fun location-based riddles and following in the footsteps of the creator with Bulgarian roots, Alex. You’ll come across ancient ruins, admire majestic churches and unlock stories of mighty empires and communist regimes that shaped the city over its rich history.
