Sofia’s National Museum of History, which sits in the grounds of ex-communist leader Todor Zhivkov’s former residence, is a cultural highlight just a short trip from the restaurants, attractions, hotels and hostels of the city centre. Head south from your accommodation in Sofia to learn about Bulgaria’s past.
The National Museum of History is the largest museum in Sofia, and preserves more than 650,000 items related to fine arts, history, ethnography and archaeology. Permanent exhibits show off furniture, traditional costumes, weapons, flags and a collection of clocks, as well as a space exhibit that boasts various space suits, instruments and space food developed for Bulgarian cosmonauts. Besides the permanent collections, a number of temporary exhibitions take place throughout the year.

Perhaps the biggest draw in this part of town is majestic Mount Vitosha, which looms over the city of Sofia. The landscape encompasses sub-alpine grasslands, stone rivers, natural spruce forests and an extensive network of caves, and offers numerous opportunities for skiing, hiking, rock-climbing, paragliding, mountain biking and more.
