Sofia Expat Events

Enjoy your Sofia Expat Experience

The capital city at the foot of Mount Vitosha opens its intercultural doors to you, beginning with its attractions such as the National Museum of History, one of the largest history museums on the Balkans,, the traditional celebration of Bulgaria’s Slavic Heritage Day, to savoring a dish of sarma. The InterNations network is a place made for the Sofia expat and offers insider tips and opportunities to ensure that you can make the most of your life as an expat in Bulgaria. Our members are looking forward to offer their advice and knowledge from experience when you come across one of the many questions about the life as an expatriate in Sofia, from ʺDo I have to learn the Cyrillic alphabet to get by?ʺ to ʺIs there an Anglo-American school in Sofia?ʺ
