Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, is the largest city of the country and lies at the feet of the Vitosha mountains. Spanning around 492 km² and sitting 550 meters above the sea level, this city is home to 1.26 million Sofians. The city has vast historical importance as human habitation started around 7000 B.C. Since its inception, the city has been witness to many shifts in power. Roman, Turkish, and Bulgarian influences over the city are evident through various monuments and landmarks. With scattered Onion-domed Churches, Ottoman mosques, and Red Army monuments, the visitors are often left spell-bounded. Beyond its historical monuments, Sofia offers its visitors many recreational and party spots throughout the city.

With few restrictions, the nightclub scene in Sofia has a fun and liberated atmosphere. Bars can serve alcohol around the clock in the city because of lenient licensing laws and parties generally take over the club until 6:00 in the morning.
