    Sofia Public Mineral Baths

    Park

    It’s very strange that Sofia, once renowned for it’s public baths, has let that particular heritage slide so badly. The baths had been in use since the 17th century, but structural concerns led to the bath being closed in the 20th century. After some renovation work though, the place is now being used as a hall for temporary exhibitions. Even if the exhibitions themselves don’...Read more

The twist is that it’s dedicated to world peace and to the world’s children. The great central monument has a sculpture of doves, and a collection of bells from around the world. The idea is to go each bell and ring it. The area is get...Read more

The hike, which begins a little way up from Boyana church, is practically as much of an attraction as the waterfall itself. You won’t get lost – there are a lot of signs to show you the way. It...Read more
