Find the best Airbnb rentals in Sofia, selected for you by Generation Voyage.

Sofia may be a pretty name, but it’s also Bulgaria’s capital and largest city. Nestled between the Balkans and the Vitosha mountains, it is the country’s largest city. This city, with its varied influences and sometimes turbulent history, is a jewel of the East. Authentic, picturesque and open to the world, it welcomes few foreign visitors, who prefer more prosaic destinations. We now invite you to reverse this trend by visiting the region itself.

To help you do just that, the best Airbnb rentals in Sofia have been carefully selected by our team. We’ll let you choose yours!
