Sofia Once Again Surprises its Residents and Guests

Thursday, 01 February 2018

The Bulgarian capital will offer night bus services as early as this spring. The service will be monitored so that it can be detected whether the interest towards it is great. There will be three bus lines and they will connect different parts of the city. The buses will run at intervals of 1h.

Sofia Municipality also pays special attention to the interconnection between Sofia and Vitosha Mountain, which offers numerous opportunities for sport and recreation. The new bus line (N163) from the National Palace of Culture to the Golden Bridges will start to operate in February and the number of buses going to the mountain will increase.

Apart from the improvements in the public transport, symbolic urban sites will be renovated and upgraded including two central urban zones. In the first one are located some of the most famous symbols of the city – Alexander Nevsky Cathedral Church, National Assembly Square, the Monument to the Tsar Liberator, St Sophia Church, the building of the Holy Synod, the Monument to Vasil Levski, St Kliment Ohridski Garden, the space between Oborishte Street and the Central Military Club, and others. In the second one is located one of the most colourful shopping streets of the city – Graf Ignatiev Street as well as its adjacent squares - Giuseppe Garibaldi, P. R. Slaveykov and Patriarch Evtimii, which are part of the cultural heritage of the capital. If you want to see how Sofia will be transformed in 2018 – come and visit it! Not only will they be renovated and upgraded but they will also become more accessible for the residents and guests of Sofia.
