Taking a walking tour of Sofia is the best way to explore the city center. In just a few hours you can learn about the most important sights of Sofia and hear a lot of interesting facts from a professional guide
. Most of the walking tours are short, lasting about 2 or 3 hours, so it's the best way to see Sofia if that is all the time you can spend exploring the city. Or even if you are staying in Sofia for a few days, taking a walking tour early during your stay will be a great introduction
and a good starting point for the rest of the sightseeing you will be doing on your own. The guide will help you identify all the important sights and even recommend activities and places to visit which you were not able to visit on the walking tour. If you would like a more in depth tour of the city, we highly recommend taking a look at all the Sofia bus city tours
that we have in offer - the tours last longer but will take you to all major attractions not just the once situated in the city center.
The most important sights that you will have the opportunity to visit on a walking tour of Sofia are: Alexander Nevski Cathedral, the National Theater, King's palace, Rotunda St. George, St. Nedelya church, Banya Bashi Mosque, the Synagogue, Central Hali Market, Lions' Bridge, Sofia University and the Parliament, Graf Ignatiev street and the Slaveikov square. Not all tours take you to all of these sights, so if you are interested in a particular sight, be sure the read the tour description to know if a stop there is included in the itinerary.
