Sofia became Bulgaria's modern capital in 1879, after taking over the position from the city of Veliko Turnovo. It is now Bulgaria's largest city as well as its political and economic center. Although the country's main tourist center is along the Black Sea coast, tours of Sofia offer visitors many places of interest within the city.

City Sightseeing

During the summer months, City Sightseeing operates bus tours of Sofia, which depart four times daily. The bus makes four stops on its tour of the city's main tourist attractions. Churches on the route include Alexander Nevski Cathedral, St. Nedelya Church and the Russian Church. The country's past domination by the Soviet Union is evident in many of the Communist-style monuments that proliferate throughout the city, such as the Tsar Liberator Monument, the Russian Monument and the Soviet Army Monument. City Sightseeing also rents its buses for private groups and special events.

V Travel

V Travel arranges private tours in and around Sofia; its guides are locals who know the city inside and out. Its tours are private and customizable, but a recommended full-day Sofia city tour visits sites such as the National History Museum and the Boyana Church, which are outside the city center. The church is known for its frescoes, including the life cycle of St. Nicholas depicted in 18 scenes. The company offers car rentals or a car service with an English-speaking driver for tourists who prefer to take self-guided tours in private cars. V Travel also maintains several well-appointed apartments in central Sofia, which can be booked in conjunction with a city tour.
