TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

On this 7 km running tour, you experience the main cultural and historic attractions of Sofia. Beside the main information about all the "must-see" places, your guide will also share the little-known facts about Sofia and its hidden gems.

The route will lead you through the multicultural part of the city with its flea market and houses built at the end of the 19th century. You will run along the shrines of the four main religions, which are just a hundred meters apart from each other. Then we will give the opportunity to refresh with mineral water from the thermal springs, used for more than 2400 years.

Next up on this running tour is the recently uncovered East and West gates of the ancient Roman city and we will also pass the remains of the Amphitheatre. A few steps further we will arrive in the beginning of the 19th century in the garden behind the former Royal Palace, now National Gallery of Art.

Attractions such as Alexander Nevski cathedral, the Parliament, Sofia University and National Theatre will not be skipped.
