Useful information about the flight from Luton to Sofia

History meets modernity in Bulgaria's capital Sofia

Sofia is a great choice of destination for all those interested in the culture and history of Southeast Europe. This historical but also surprisingly modern metropolis with more than one million inhabitants is Bulgaria's most important city next to Plovdiv and Burgas.


When is the best time to visit Sofia?

A city trip to Sofia is best planned during the period from May to October for the best weather. 

For skiing holidays in the snowy Rila Mountains region, the travel months of December to March are ideal. In addition to being the perfect place for skiing, Rila Monastery is also worth a visit.

A highlight in Bulgaria's cultural life is the Orthodox Easter Festival, the date of which varies. When the international film festival takes place in Sofia in March, the red and white "Martenitsa" ribbons can be seen everywhere throughout Bulgaria. In the summer months of June and July, music from all over the world is heard in Bulgaria's capital Sofia during the "Music Weeks". This international festival of music, dance and theatre performances has been staged in front of an enthusiastic audience since 1970. In mid-June, visitors to the Sofia Beer Festival can enjoy a wide variety of music and events.

How do you prepare for your trip to Sofia?

In general, the cost of living for food, drinks and tobacco is cheaper in Bulgaria than in the UK, but somewhat higher in the capital. Fast-food prices start at 4 BGN, lunch costs about 10 BGN, a beer about 3 BGN.
