Best things to do in Sofia

Theatre
“Located at the heart of Sofia, national theatre ‘’Ivan Vazov’’ is one of the best places to chill after you finish exploring the city during the day. I highly recommend going there later in the day and enjoy yourself a beer with friends. If you are keen on plays you can check if there is one on the theatre’s website. It’s easy to reach – next to metro station Serdika. ”
