Sofia is ready for Christmas and New Year's celebrations

I had a chance to walk around Sofia downtown these days and I was happy to see that the city is well decorated with the Christmas symbols – Christmas trees and shining lights. Especially some of the big buildings like banks, shopping centers and hotels attract me with its decorations.

Location of Sofia Christmas market

I‘d like to share some pictures (sorry for the poor quality, but it seems to be that smart phones are not the best decisions for night shots) and information about a place I found (exactly here) , that turned out to be the Sofia Christmas Market.  It is located at the city garden, right next the Bulgarian National Theatre “Ivan Vazov”. I don’t why, but It makes me feel like I’m in Austria or Germany, may be because there were signs “Weihnachtsmarkt”.

The market offers:

 Christmas food - different type of sausages, just like Austrian’s and German’s “Wurst”, pastry and candies; hot wine (Gl├╝hwein) and punch; Christmas souvenirs and children's shows with Santa.
