The half-day tour to the main sights in Sofia, as well as to the Boyana Church at the foot of the Vitosha Mountains, was very pleasant and informative! The main sights in the center of Sofia were explored on foot and its history was explained in detail. All questions were answered immediately. In addition, there was no time pressure during the whole tour. Our guide drove us to the Boyana Church in his car. The church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is absolutely worth seeing due to its expressive frescoes on the walls inside.
