You will be lead through it by our highly educated guides and also with the help of two museums – The National Archaeology Museum and Sofia History Museum.

Also during the day tour, the remains of the Roman city of Serdica will be revealed by visiting the Roman ruins, St. Sofia church, and the rotunda of St. George. Other highlights will be Alexander Nevski cathedral, the symbol of the city, the monarchy palace, Sofia University main building, a piece of art from the very late 19th century, the parliament and of course the Communist administrative center, the stunning view of the “Horseshoe” and the legacy of “The Bells".
