🌏 It’s still summer and still Sofia with sooo many sightseeing places that even a lion statue seems to be good enough for photo 😂
🤫 Anyway, spending this week in the best city ever, I realized how cool it is to be busy with being happy , instead of wasting time in social media
☀️ Whazzup, friends! How’s your week going? Mine passed extremely fast.
🎉Happy Friday! •
☀️ Bulgaria National Library in the name of Cyril and Mefodiy.
Typical Soviet- style building as many others in Sofia.
❓And I wonder, why do we still keep public paper libraries if they purpose is already outdated? For sure having the paper info is super important but where is the balance between “good to have” and “good to use”?

☀️ A few more points about Sofia:
🌿 Nice sewer hatch. Don’t ask, why do I capture them all the time 🙈
🌿Super retro telephone machine that it still in use. I bet, I haven’t seen such machines for 5 years at least
🌿 Local coins - “Levy” and “stotinki”
🌿 These papers on the trees are about asking to remember people that died some time ago. Quite a popular tradition there, in Sofia.

⛪️Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is one of the biggest and the most beautiful buildings there, in Sofia. And perhaps, one of the most picturesque places 🙈

🌏Exploring Sofia: our experience.
🌿The city has lot of space maybe perhaps because we were there during the weekend. Or just because Bulgaria is not such an attractive country for living as it may sound.
🌿« Soviet style » parks - so clean and cute with the street music and home made ice cream.
🌿They say that there is a ski resort just near the Sofia but as our time was limited, we decided to let someone else to explore it. •
Meet our Cosmonaut's Manual. Nope, there's no advice on navigating through outer space. There is, however, quite a bit about navigating through Bulgarian culture and understanding our roots. It is a reminder for us Bulgarians to cherish our homeland, and a guide for our foreign guests to get a better idea of the surroundings.
We've handpicked and written short chapters on traditions and culture, Bulgaria's contributions to exploring the universe, local wine sorts, typical products, occasional fun facts, and of course, our tips on what to see in Sofia and beyond.
The content changes every few months and we try to keep it short, yet rich and useful.
Our one-year-old booklet now has a new funky look and we just had to share. Have a great day.
Our second home is situated right in the heart of Sofia, Bulgaria.
We started with a team of just 1 working from his garage and are currently standing at 25 people in a vintage apartment block. Plenty of walls have been knocked down in the building to accomodate everyone over the years, with the addition of a gym and a bbq on the balcony!
