Re: Sofia/Belgrade Advice
Coming from Greece you will probably cross Plovdiv, Bulgarian largest rail- and road hub. Its more beautifull than Sofia and you can spend 2 or 3 days there. It has a well preserved old town, one of countries most beautifull displaying the famous National Revival architecture. these are typical renaissance/baroque houses with colourfull facades and amazing interiors with exquisite woodcarvings. it has also the countries largest Roman Amfitheater, ruins off the first settlements by the Thraciers -- 8000 years old -- old baths, and mosques from the Ottoman period. 30 km south of the town there is a famous monastery. (Bachkovo). The town has a great nightlife with many pubs. The town is been one of the oldest non stop inhabited towns of Europe.
