If you feel like your work life is a drain, it’s time to step away from the water cooler and step up to the fountain of youth—which may just be in a humble Bulgarian city called Sofia. You wouldn’t know it from her looks, but she’s been inhabited since—get this—7000 BCE!
Maybe it’s the mineral springs; maybe it’s the fresh air from the surrounding Vitosha Mountains…maybe it’s up to you to discover her secret to longevity when you book one of lastminute.co.nz’s holiday packages to Sofia. All we know is that with museums, churches and spas galore, Sofia accommodation is a far cry from the daily grind—unless your job involves visiting museums, churches and spas, that is.
Sidle up to Sofia’s central symbol, Cathedral Saint Alexandar Nevski, for a sweet selfie to start your day. As one of Bulgaria’s biggest neo-Byzantine basilicas, its bells and bling will leave your senses feeling buzzed. Or there’s the medieval Boyana Church and its famous frescoes if you’re looking to whittle down your UNESCO World Heritage bucket list. Get a crash course in history at the Natural Historical Museum (for all things man-made) or the Natural History Museum (for all things earth-made).
Speaking of earth, get up close and personal with it during a hike to Boyana Waterfall, located in the Vitosha Mountains. After taking in the panoramic views, many hotels in Sofia will make your stay even sweeter with a traditional honey massage to soothe your tired muscles (don’t worry—it’s not a sticky situation).
When night falls, knock back a fruity rakia and beef up on Bulgarian barbecue at the restaurants and bars on Vitosha Boulevard. If you haven’t gotten your shopping in, this is the place to grab your holiday souvenirs before tearing up the nightclubs in the NDK neighbourhood.
Touch down in Sofia Airport (SOF), 5km from the city centre. The city has a great public transport system, so catch a bus, tram, trolleybus, taxi or pogo stick (just kidding on that last one) to one of our Sofia hotels.
Because of the great deals you’ll nab on lastminute.co.nz, booking this trip is a no-brainer. And with that bulging budget, booking Istanbul accommodation will add some Turkish delight to your next adventure! The famed city is just a quick flight away from Sofia—why not extend your annual leave by a day or two and try some of its coffee?
