Spring in Sofia: Unwind in Sofia’s parks & Escape to Vitosha Mountain

Unwind in Sofia’s parks

Locals adore the city’s parks, where they idle for hours on benches or picnic blankets during warm spring and summer days. Visit the lush and peaceful City Garden located near the National Theatre to enjoy a cup of coffee or watch a mesmerizing Bulgarian folklore demonstration often held in the park. During the winter months, the garden transforms into one of the city’s most bustling Christmas markets.

Another popular place to spend time outdoors is Borisova Garden, a sprawling and lively park in the heart of the city, where young people and families gather to play sports, groove to music, or bask in the sun while reading a book on the soft grass.

Tip: Crystal Garden Park is a lively destination for a fun night out, especially in spring and summer.



Escape to Vitosha Mountain

Nature lovers should visit nearby Vitosha Mountain for a range of activities, including accessible and affordable ski rides in winter and invigorating hikes in summer. Take the Simeonovo gondola and experience breathtaking views from Cherni Vrah, meaning ‘Black Peak,’ or hike to the Boyana waterfall for an unforgettable panoramic vista.

Tip: Ski lovers can plan a ski vacation in some of the popular Bulgarian resorts like Bansko, Borovets, and Pamporovo.
