Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, is an ancient town, dating back from centuries ago. Relics are well preserved and match perfectly to the new modern city. The Icon museum, The Crypt within the Memorial church - St. Aleksander Nevski - has kept an unbelievable treasure of well preserved icons. The tolerant spirit of Sofia could be felt when visiting the Eastern Orthodox church, the Islamic mosque and the Jewish Synagogue. A charming mixture between modern life and a somehow Oriental spirit coupled with extremely friendly people is an experience not to be missed.
