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.
