Why fly to Sofia?

Located in the stunning Sofia Valley at the base of Mount Vitosha, Sofia is one of Europe’s oldies, having a history that dates back some 7,000 years. And having played host to Romans, Byzantines, Bulgars, and Turks over the years, this city has a rich cultural heritage. Check out its grand Neo-classical boulevards and its array of churches and Ottoman mosques to see what we mean. From 4th century Byzantine basilicas to huge onion-domed cathedrals, Sofia is a culture vulture’s paradise when it comes to historical riches too. And, of course, there’s all you could wish for in terms of museums and galleries, with some of the most impressive historic collections in Eastern Europe. The National Museum of History is a must see for anyone interested in European history.

Best time to visit

June, July and August see Sofia in peak summer-time mode with hot, generally dry weather and a lively atmosphere. This is when the majority of travellers choose to fly to Sofia, but the city also sees a surge between December and February as winter sports enthusiasts stop in to explore the city on their way to Bulgaria's ski resorts.

Avoid the crowds

Fly into Sofia between April and May or September and October for a less crowded experience and the most competitive travel rates. During late spring and early autumn, the weather is warm and pleasant, perfect for hiking Vitosha Mountain (just 30-minutes from Sofia centre) and exploring landmarks such as the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral without the usual summertime hoards.
