A vacation in Sofia takes you to the crossroads between East and West. Greek, Roman, Ottoman and Soviet rulers have influenced and shaped this Balkan nation, visible through the city's collection of grandiose monuments, museums and Roman relics. It is a unique blend of past and present, and is home to the country's finest collection of art galleries. A good selection of funky bars and restaurants are a tantalizing addition to its bustling core. Pretty gardens, public spaces, and buzzy sidewalk cafes give visitors respite from the city's excitement, as does the looming volcanic mountain massif, Mount Vitosha, just a few miles south of the city.
