I drive on the highway on the western outskirt of Sofia on a way to our summer vacations in Greece. I haven't had the opportunity to visit the city itself, but what I know is that it isn't very far from the Bulgaria's highest mountain Musala. The route to border town Kulata is very scenic. Both Bulgaria and Greece were under Ottoman empire's rule until some point, but I noticed no hard feelings about it.
