Sofia. It is one of the oldest cities and the capital of Bulgaria, the last unknowable land of Europe and one of the most enigmatic countries of the East. Located at the foot of the Vitosha Mountain and due to its strategic situation between the Asia-Europe crossing, Sofia was inhabited by different nations over the centuries: Thracians, Romans, Byzantines, Slavs, proto-Bulgarians and Turks.
Consequently, Sofia incorporates a vast universe of archaeological, cultural and historical testimonies, an immense legacy to which Russian influences and Bulgarians themselves must add. For all this, Sofia, is a capital where many contrasts, radical on the one hand and curious and disturbing on the other, are mixed up; it is a city that has been plundered and devastated many times and that is now struggling to get out of its historical past and rebuild a modernity that was denied it by its bloody past.
