That face!
We fell in love with this lion too :) You were blessed with much better weather than we had on our few days in Sofia. I didn't really connect with the city, so it's nice to read another perspective. Looking forward to your blog on Plovdiv... we loved that city!

RenanDrew, thanks for your visit and nice comment. We really did have excellent weather in Sofia, and sorry you didn't have better weather on your own trip there. For being a large city, I thought Sofia was very pleasant, with friendly people, lots of history and so much to see. We were there for a total of 4 nights over the course of the trip, but to really do Sofia justice, it would have been better to stay at least 2 more days as several of my friends did. I absolutely loved that lion!
