Description

Want to start your day as real Bulgarian? Look no further! Here's your opportunity to eat breakfast with the fine city of Sofia and its welcoming citizens on a unique, local food tour of Sofia.    

Start your morning at one of Sofia's icons - Alexander Nevski Cathedral. After a brief introduction, we'll head over to a typical Bulgarian snack bar. Along the way, we'll visit local symbols, including Hagia Sofia Church, a 6th century church and site full of energy and mystery. We'll also catch Sofia University, Parliament, and the statue of King Libertador, all of which are the main icons of Bulgarian history in Sofia.    

By this point, we know you'll want breakfast - perfect, we do too! We'll taste Bulgarian banitsa, combined with ayryan, as Bulgarians normally do in the morning. Banitsa is delicious small pastry prepared from dough and cheese and sometimes meat or nettle, and is unique to Bulgaria and the Balkans. The ayryan is prepared from yogurt and gives the final unique touch of the breakfast.    

Satisfied with our local breakfast, we'll continue walking along the narrow streets, which are part of Old Sofia and exude centuries of rich history. The streets leads us to Graf Ignatiev Street, home to a famous market where you may buy fresh fruits and vegetables, or taste baked nuts or delicious snacks, as locals do. It is a market on the street with many stalls, which all compete for shoppers' attention, so you'll experience a real lively atmosphere! From there, we'll make our way to a famous pastry shop that prepares the best traditional Bulgarian desserts. Along the way, we'll encounter the biggest open-air book store in Bulgaria, and a favourite meeting point for many people.    

In the pastry shop we will taste a sweet and delicious dessert - baklava. It is very sweet and full of nuts. We may also have the chance to try tolumbichka, cream-cake or other sweets. As is customary, we'll combine the sweets with another unique beverage for the region - boza. Bottoms up!
