Bulgaria is a very important country in the Balkans and - maybe for work or maybe for a cheap airfare - one day you will have the chance to explore Sofia, one of the most beautiful Eastern Europe city, which you probably haven’t considered before.After Athens and Rome, Sofia is the most ancient city in Europe.In the past the city was called Serdica (also Ulpia Serdica), Triaditza and Sredets. Sofia became the capital of Bulgaria in 1879, after the Liberation of the country from 500 years of Turkish enslavement.

Everything is better after you’re full, no? I didn’t have much to do. It gets dark quickly in the winter so I just decided to make the most of whatever little time I had and walked around the city. What can I say about Timisoara? I don’t know much about it, frankly, and I didn’t get a chance to find out either. I can tell you it’s in Western Romania and is the third most populous city in the country. I can tell you it is called ‘Little Vienna’ for some reason (but I was in a foul mood that day and I refused to agree with whoever told me that). And I can tell you that it is a pretty city. If prettiness can show itself inspite of the snow, it’s a pretty city indeed!
