“Main shopping street in Sofia”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is the main shopping street in Sofia. It's populated with "real" stores (e.g. Nine West, Mango, Zara, etc) rather than tourist souvenir shops. It's mainly a pedestrian walkway, so it can be very pleasant in nice weather to wander down the street and window shop (or actually shop!). There are also a lot of restaurants and bars with plenty of outdoor seating, so you can stop for a drink or two along the way. The restaurants here are going to be more expensive than in other areas of the city since it is a shopping/tourist area, but the prices still aren't too bad.

I was here in June and did not notice any construction.

“Trendy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Though undergoing some restoration at the time I was there, this is street still keeps a good vibe full of chic bars and pubs, nice restaurants and amazing shops and cafes. Ideal to have a brunch or a kick-off night begin.

“Great walking street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

As some have said this is the "Bond Street" of Sofia. with so many shops you could spend a day or two just wandering around and people watching. Did not experience the problems with construction others had mentioned.

“Lots of shopping, currently a bit of a building site”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Imagine Regent Street, London, with the pavement torn up, the side roads closed and ticker tape everywhere. Builders mingling with visitors and equipment all over the place. This shopping street is very much in flux! Should be good when it's finished, and everything seems to be open in the meanwhile.
