Alexander Nevski, Sofia
The main focus of attraction in the city...actually sofia doesnt offer so much to do or to see...perhaps around vitosha boulevard there is something to see cos is just the downtown...
This church is 10 min eastern from this center...crossin sofia city garden you can take a huge boulevard (Tsar Osvoditel) where there is huge comunist buildings and some churches... after 5 minutes turning left you will see the huge chatedral in white and green ...
See the Alexander Nevski cathedral and shop the trinket and textile markets around it.
Fondest memory: I live here, so it's hard to pick any single moment. Meeting and marrying the woman of my dreams would be the best thing that has happened to me here, so that will do for this answer.
The worst thing is the outrageously flagrant disregard for the law by the new mafia class and the fact that most ordinary members of Bulgarian society respect and envy them. But don't worry, they don't mess with tourists--they have better things to do. Watch out for pickpockets, though.
Visit the Saint Aleksandar Nevski Cathedral. Use this web site: www.feb.uni-sofia.bg/projects/Sofia.htmlt for any further details on nightlife, restaurants, medical care, cultural events, fun stuff, libraries and so on... And don't forget to enjoy your stay there...
Fondest memory: So many beautiful girls and very cheap... For instance: a coctail in one of the most expensive bars in Sofia costs only $3, a nice dinner is about $4-5/person with some wine. You must try the bulgarian red wines (over 1000 years tradition in wine making), feta cheese (probably the best in the whole world) and yoghurt (the bacteria, which transforms milk into yoghurt is called bacterium bulgaricum and is one of the main export items of Bulgaria; in France the most expensive plain youghurt is made be Nestle and is written on it with big letters 'With bulgarian taste/Avec le gout bulgare'). Our yoghurt is also famous in Japan and firms like Dannone or Emmy use these bacteria to produce yoghurt. So guys, what are you waiting for :-)))
