PLACES: first impressions of Sofia

The pictures and sounds are quite incoherent, but so were my first 4 days in Sofia. I had a lot of fun strolling around, trying to get an overview of the city & my job. I’m overwhelmed but still happy & excited to get to know more about the city, the country (and the Bulgarian language…)

(Sounds of my first week in Sofia)

NDK - National Culture Palace where I attended the first press conference - completely in Bulgarian. It was interesting to be there, though & I was excited to see the building from the inside

Monument to the Soviet Army I was discussing about this monument with my 2 Bulgarian flatmates. We couldn't figure out if or what the graffiti is supposed to mean. However this place is quite popular for political statements (particularly regarding Russia)
