Sofia-Rila Monastery-Plovdiv-Sofia

Culture and History tour in Sofia

Tour Price : On request Duration : 4 days Languages: English, French

Day1: Exploring Sofia. Once I meet you at the airport and transfer you to the hotel, you’ll have some time to rest before the overview tour of Sofia starts. Having worked as a private guide in Sofia for years, I can tell you everything about this place. We’ll visit the most famous sites in the city such as the Serdica fortress ruins, Saint Sofia Church, Saint George Rotunda church, the National Theatre and many others. This will be your first acquaintance with the Bulgarian capital that will help you learn the city better. 

Day 2: A day at the Rila Monastery. This monastery is of a great importance for all Bulgarians. First of all, it is the largest Orthodox monastery in the country, located in a very beautiful area, so there are many visitors both from Bulgaria and abroad. It was one of the few Orthodox institutions to survive during the Ottoman rule, so it’s also an ark of the older Bulgarian culture from the times of the medieval kingdom. The monastery is a massive and spacey structure, so it will take a whole day to explore it. Once we are done doing it, it’s time to get back to Sofia. 

Day 3: A day in Plovdiv. On our way from Sofia to Plovdiv we’ll stop in the Bachkovo Monastery, which is another great example of the Orthodox tradition along the Rila Monastery. Once we arrive in Plovdiv, our main goal will be exploring the central part of the city as well as the old town, which features traditional houses and several older sites such as the Roman Amphitheatre. After spending the whole day in Plovdiv we’ll head back to Sofia. 

Day 4: Back to Sofia. After enjoying the breakfast we’ll go to the Byana church, which is a Unesco site, and also visit the Museum of History. The afternoon will be devoted to free time in the city.
