24 hours in a city, especially a capital city, is never enough time…but you take what you can get. Our 24 hour trip to Sofia was a whirlwind (we even got caught in a torrential downpour! Is a whirlwind trip even complete without getting caught in the rain at some point?) I wanted to try and plan a detailed, precise itinerary to try and see everything but we ended up just wandering and absorbing; the architecture was gorgeous, colorful, grand, and the Bulgarian language buzzed around us. The one exception to this was making it out to the Bulgarian National History museum (National History Museums are always my favorite parts of capital cities).
It felt like it was over before it started.
