|After taking the metro to the city centre. I walked for 20 minutes and came across Tsurkva Sveta Nikolai (the Russian church). The snow definitely makes it look even more beautiful.|
|I went to a traditional Bulgarian place to eat called "Izbata Tavern". This is where I got to try some Shopska salad, which tasted so much better than I expected. I never thought that it could be possible to love salad that much.|
|After eating some shopska salad I had to wash it down with something right? This was the perfect opportunity to try some traditional beverages. So I had some rakia which is a very STRONG brandy, and "Ayran" which is like a yogurt based drink.|
I did many more things in Sofia but did not get many photos because it was too cold. I visited a local rose shop where they sell rose beauty products. I bought a face mask from there and some rose water to use as a facial cleanser. The Balkans will always be the most fascinating region of Europe to me. It's bursting with culture, and I definitely want to see every country in South East Europe.
