TIPS

New Year gets busy in Sofia and most of the cool places get fully booked. It's mandatory to secure your spot by booking in advance. Therefore be sure to contact us for that.

Prices for taxis, dinners and parties are higher than usual so make sure to check our recommendations over the next weeks. 

Public transport: Both metro lines will be operating such as some of the key tram, bus and trolley lines. The only problem is that they are not so frequent. Be sure to check the real-time timetable.

 

THINGS NOT TO DO

  • Avoid drinking on the street
  • Avoid being on the street especially around midnight
    Not because it's dangerous but mainly because of the fireworks and firecrackers. In Sofia and in Bulgaria people are keen on throwing lots of them from their windows, balconies, roofs.
