Sofia - a city with many monuments, ruins, museums, and shopping malls, where one can discover the chaotic beauty of Eastern European culture. However, for those who want to venture further east from the west, there is a whole other world, hidden away from the media spotlight. The suburbs of Sofia have kept the flavor of the simple life of times past. The smell of smoke from the stoves of the Roma people, the quiet murmur of the Iskar river and the melancholic sound, coming from the nearby thermal power station, will paint a picture in your mind that will make you feel at home. To complement the experience of the suburban lifestyle, you can have for lunch one of the most famous foods of the locals, right next to the river. And for those, who can’t keep their inner Indiana Jones calm, the adventure continues through a field of sand and mud, to finally reach the secret destination - a slowly disappearing lake. Come. Discover the suburbs. Remember the simple life. You won’t regret it.
