Spend time in one of Europe's oldest cities, the vibrant Bulgarian capital of Sofia.
Venture out of the city with trips to Rila Monastery (in Rila) and Borovets Ski Resort (in Borovets). Saddle up on the 9th (Thu) and explore with a tour on horseback. There's lots more to do: test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at The Rotunda of St George (Sveti Georgi), admire the striking features of Saint Nedelja Church, and fly down the slopes at Vitosha Mountain.
