Tour description

Walk with me through the highlights of central Sofia!

Let me guide you through the last 17 centuries of history, architecture, religion and more!

The tour starts from Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, St. Sophia Church, Russian Church, National Theater and Presidential Office. Round Church of St. George, St. Nedelya Church, Roman ruins, TSUM, mosque and ends at Sofia Historical Museum.

I want to get to know my hometown at a glance, discover one of the most fashionable capitals in Europe and spend pleasant moments with a local friend.

La guía No apareció en el punto de encuentro. Esperamos más de media hora y también le envíe un mensaje pero no contestó. Creo que esta persona no debería ser parte de Guruwalk porque perjudica mucho no ser puntual, no aparecer, ni contestar a los mensajes y encima decir que no hemos ido al punto de encuentro a la hora establecida

Un tour súper entretenido por el estilo de simona, la información justa en cada sitio en lugar de llenar con datos innecesarios. Muy buen nivel de español y súper didáctica.
