    Sofia Sports & Outdoors

    For those who love jumpings in the pool depths, there are some pools and bathing-beaches in Sofia, where you can find those "high towers"...Its safe to do it as there are life-guards who keep an eye on everybody around. You need just your swimming suit and your courage :)

  • Tour de Bulgaria !!!!

    We bought a couple of bikes this time we went to Bulgaria, it was the best thing we could have done as we saw so much more of the country side, as we went places that cars couldnt get to. We also came across some rather large puddles that needed good negotiation!!!

So the following underwater sports cannot be practised...
