Visit to Sofia

In June I had the luck to go to Sofia and to find a vibrant city:
It’s a mixture of different cultures, but very specifically it’s own, based on the Bulgarian culture with dabs of Osman and K&K (kaiserlich & königlich = Austrian Empire) empires. And some more influences like the Sinti and Roma. The latter are the only non-white people you see (except for tourists) and their living quarters are recognizable – minorities never live easy (as I learned in Istanbul lately).
