Free Walking Tour in Sofia

Free Walking Tour in Sofia, Sofia, Bulgaria (B)

Sofia is not somewhere that automatically springs to mind, when thinking about a city break. However, it was my destination of choice following my few days in the Bulgarian mountains, where I spent my time snowboarding falling over!

As I only had a short time staying in the city, I was reccommended and took up the offer of doing a free city tour, by my hotel; the Park Inn by Radisson, and I am glad I did.

I have often said, that grabbing a map, and taking to the streets by foot is the best way to see a new city, and it is even better when you are getting a guide for free.

Free walking tours have been a popular feature for travellers in various cities, all over the World, and are quite simple. You show up to a main location, meet a guide and various other likeminded travellers, then take to the streets, and get an informative tour of the key sights in the city.

The Free Sofia Tour is the first project run by the 365 association, and is staffed by volunteers. The Free Sofia Tour happens twice daily, at 11am and 6pm and meets at the Palace of Justice. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
