With the pound almost the same as the euro, canny city break enthusiasts are looking beyond the eurozone for their next getaway.

Eastern Europe has a rich variety of fascinating and romantic cities and the Bulgarian capital Sofia is one of the most beguiling and laid-back.

Greeks, Romans and Ottoman Turks have left their mark on the city, not to mention the distinctive traces of Cold War Soviet domination. It’s a capital that offers history, culture and a relaxed café and bar scene.

Today’s Big Deal offers an opportunity to discover the city in style, with a four-night city break including flights and luxury five star accommodation in this atmospheric and distinctive capital.

Central accommodation

The four star Central Hotel Sofia is located in the centre of Bulgaria’s capital, close to all its main attractions and just a five minutes walk from Serdika metro station.

Explore Sofia

Since classical antiquity, this part of Europe has been known for its mineral waters and spa springs. The nearby hot springs at Bankya are a popular sport for locals, but there are also ten spa centres within Sofia, perfect for wellness enthusiasts or for those in need of a relaxing dip after a spot of sightseeing.

The hub of modern Sofia is Vitosha Boulevard, the pedestrianised main shopping avenue, but bargain hunters will find a growing number of craft shops and boutiques in every corner of the city. Foodies should head for the elegant, century-old Central Hali mall, where they will find local cheeses and delicious Turkish pastries.

Bulgaria is outside the eurozone so British visitors will find that the exchange rate is favourable compared to the major cities of Western Europe.

Colourful city break

A Sofia city break offers the perfect introduction to a unique and fascinating city that combines history, culture and a lively bar and club scene. It is a chance to discover one of Eastern Europe’s less well-known capitals before the hipsters claim it as the new Prague.

Today’s Big Deal provides direct flights and luxurious central accommodation. With a wide range of departures, there’s plenty of chance to get some Eastern European flavour.
