Sofia: nightlife and clubs

Sofia nightlife: Bulgaria has established itself in recent years as a summer destination for young people looking for nightlife, thanks to the resorts of Sunny Beach, Varna and Golden Sands, on the Black Sea. But also the nightlife of Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, hides real pearls and guarantees a lot of fun! Here are the best clubs in Sofia.

Sofia nightlife

Sofia is certainly one of the cheapest cities in Europe and its nightlife makes it the perfect destination for a low-cost weekend : in Sofia you can have fun with little and meet beautiful Bulgarian girls in the various clubs scattered around the center, open every day of the week.

Sofia is in fact a young and active city, and Bulgarians love unbridled fun. Usually the nightlife in Sofia starts quite late: the meeting takes place early, immediately after dinner, in some cafes or in some pubs to start the evening, but the real party does not start before midnight, and ends in late dawn!

To reach the various clubs in Sofia , the recommended way is by taxi: they are very cheap and allow you to move quickly from one point to another in the city. Sofia's public transport stops running from 01.00 to 5.00, so at night a taxi is the only possible solution: although Sofia is a relatively safe city, we don't recommend walking alone in the middle of the night.
