InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Sofia

Hello to all Americans in Sofia! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Sofia? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Sofia which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Sofia is a dynamic city with a lot to offer for expats. The Bulgarian capital is a youthful city known for its historic treasures, vibrant arts scene, Balkan cuisine, and much more! With the network of bus, trolleybus, tram, and metro lines, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Ivan Vazov or Mladost, for example, which are both less than a 40-minute public transportation journey away from Sofia’s center.

Although Sofia has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Sofia, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.

An amazing community is waiting for you!

Do you want to continue with your hobbies — or discover new ones — while living in Sofia? There’s a variety of InterNations Groups you can join, including everything from sightseeing to hiking.
