  • Always good for a day or two escape from the city... Easy to get there, nice for snowboarding and skiing and enjoying the view from above  more »
  • We were in Sofia in early April, in the town of Sofia, a pleasant and snowy mountain. At the end of the week the cable car was open, rising and descending from the cable cars increased 12 lava (return + return). A ride to the cable car cost 12 lava to the taxi. The length of the ascent/drop in the cable car takes about 40 minutes, (dress accordingly). Surfing equipment can be rented at the top of the mountain. There's also a nice, inexpensive restaurant for a snack or something hot. It's a really nice big time to spend a few hours.
