A Photo Study of Sofia

There is so much to be said about this beautiful city.  A picture is worth a 1,000 words, and I’d like to share a few 1,000 words with you.

Tiles patterned in a scallop shape.  I thought I could sit here all day.

A lovely church that we happened upon.  We took a sneak peak inside and it was gorgeous.

Lucky of us, it was a beautiful Sunday. The sun warmed up the cold brisk air which made it perfect for exploring the city.

The girl has in her hand a traditional Bulgarian Survachkas.  Children make these and they usually attach popcorn, or beans.  It’s all strung up and then attached to the stick.  Then, they will go to elderly people such as their grandparents and lightly pat them with it.  The acting of patting is suppose to give them good health for the rest of the year.  The whacking continues until they receive lucky money.  🙂

Trams that run in the city in Sofia are really old.  They are usually very brightly painted which adds to the charm of the city.
