    Money exchange

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Money exchange – is very easy to exchange over there just remember only clean unmarked english notes no writing on them or tears as they can be very difficult to change, exchange Euro or $ but only use banks or hotel exchange facilities - DO NOT use street money changers or booths or you will be ripped off. is it safe to use the cash point machines. In some exchange points in the street there is correct rate of exchange outside but inside is different, unprofitable for tourists.

    Trip around Sozopol - be careful!

    by trono Written May 26, 2005

    In the middle of the town I saw a small toy-train with open seats. When I asked what it is the reply was - tour around Sozopol. I decided to try this tour and bought myself a ticket. We went by the seacoast and ended up in the middle of nowhere. All the people got off the train and went to the nearest camp. It turned out all of them came to the town market for shopping. I was lucky when the train headed the town in five minutes. Two of my friends who got trapped the same way were not so lucky and had to wait for half an hour in the burning sun until they were taken back!

    Unique Suggestions: Always have your swimming suit on you and a hat, at least you can go swimming.

    by Avala Written Aug 24, 2003

    You can throw eggs to Osama Bin Laden. This is the most idiotical part of new town which looks lake fair or circuss.

    Unique Suggestions: Just don`t look at this idiot.
    He was there for like seven days and than he was gone-Tthe day when I saw a newspaper title -Sofia,Bulgaria Al-Qaeeda's european center! :) :) :)

    Fun Alternatives: Go with Republikanska street from new part to old part so you can miss this.
