Visit to Bulgaria

Sofia, during the Neolithic period some 5000 yrs ago, began as 2 settlements around numerous hot and cold mineral springs, which still run today. Previously called Serdica and Sredets, Sofia is ancient, some 1700 yrs older than Brussels and older than Rome.Terry Randall’s enthusiasm for the city is infectious. (see: Sofia – the History of Europe, ‘I am a Sofian. Sofia is my city. This city’s European atmosphere, its Mediterranean spirit makes me feel Celtic, Roman, Thracian, Hellenic, but above all I feel cosmopolitan. Sofia is ancient, but it hasn’t grown old, it has grown extremely wise, like the translation of its name from the Greek, God’s wisdom.’
