Subject: [OM] IMG: Sofia, Bulgaria

I have been busy during the past week, editing my photos from the previous week 
s trip to Sofia, my first ever visit to any of the Balkan countries. Bulgaria 
is the poorest member of the EU, and in some ways Sofia reminds me of Poland 15 
years ago, with its mix of ugly drabness and colourful modernity. But the city 
also has an interesting history, dating back to Roman times, 500 years of being 
part of the Ottoman empire, and the result is a curious mix of Slavic, Southern 
European and Oriental culture. I was there for work, but there was enough free 
time to explore the city, also helped by the fact that most of the main sights 
were within walking distance or at most one or two metro stops away from my 
hotel.

The resulting gallery focuses on the city, with my usual emphasis on art as 
well, both formal (in the Sofia City Art Gallery) and in the streets and parks. 
One thing that struck me about Sofia is the large number of sculptures and 
statues in public spaces. But there are also some incredible churches and a 
large Sephardic synagogue. Altogether, the gallery contains 110 images:

As always, comments and critique are welcome and appreciated.
