Nice trend road in the main centre of sofia. Good selection of bars and restaurants and shops. Cheap. A lot of beggars though which is slightly off putting

Was there just before Christmas and the boulevard was nicely decorated and even in the cold weather it was lots of people there. Even if the smallest of shops had some English language problems there was always someone to help.

Vitosha street, or simply, "Vitoshka", is a nice long stretch of cafes, restaurants and shops. It's definitely possible to spend the whole afternoon or day here and there are some beautiful pictures to be had of the walkway itself and Vitosha mountain in the background. Locals and tourists alike come here. Very safe atmosphere.

Nice to spend some time on the main commercial street in Sofia. Plenty of stores and restaurants on this pedestrian street.

This is a pedestrian zone full of bars and restaurants - very desired area for both young people and adults. Great cafes and shops, lovely atmosphere and a recommended place to meet friends or make new friends

Arguably, perhaps the best place to walk in a street in Sofia. No cars - already, a nice view to Vitosha mountain on one side and Hagia Nedelya church on the other. But stressful for several reasons. First, too many cafes. Second, not much of an artistic imagination employed, nothing especially interesting in the form of trees, fountains, sculptures, etc.... More

Going to visit my friend and hurrying a bit for I dreamed of the of my favourite coffee she makes, I was walking fast on Vitosha Bld from Sveta Nedelya Sq. toward National Palace of Culture. Looking up and forward the beautiful view of Mount Vitosha made me smile, slow down and feel thankful for living in this city.

Thank Stanimira G
