Here's an excerpt from the current Ordinance On Passenger Transport And Terms Of Travel In Sofia’s Public Transport (last revision 01.01.2011) on the official website of the Urban Mobility Center in Sofia. You would usually find the terms also on the back of the driver's cabin (in Bulgarian), on an A2 poster filled with a wall of text. Art. 9 (1) A ...

Currently found only this article with "maybe" address: Lachezar Stanchev Street in the Izgrev borough And from comments found news about that opening date is September, 16. This official news also says that this address is right: Some of the National Art Gallery’s works are to go on travelling exhibitions, while some will go on temporary loan to the ...

Can't advise on Kosovo, never been there. I like the northern route: Nis (Serbia) Kopaonik National Park Novi Pazar -- several notable monasteries in the vicinity. Moraca river canyon (Montenegro) -- memorable road, remarkably steep drops Podgorica Either proceed directly to Skhoder, Albania (60km) or take a small detour down the Montenegrin coast down ...

I don't think it's possible. The Center for City Mobility (Център за градска мобилност) in Sofia which is responsible for the rapid transit system in the city has this to say on SMS parking (emphasis mine): Customers of Bulgaria’s mobile operators may park on public streets and squares in the municipality, which are within the limits of the Blue Zone ...

I checked two other guide books and found this: DK Eyewitness Travel Bulgaria: This rule is, however, only really enforced to and from the airport. Within the city it is widely ignored. The Rough Guide to Bulgaria: Officially, you’re supposed to buy an extra ticket for each large item of baggage, but in practice this is rarely enforced - ...

Your hotel in Sofia may be willing to store your bags, especially if you are staying some nights there again on the far side of the UK journey.

I just can add a small piece of information. Again I quote my LonelyPlanet from 2009: Because Serbia doesn't consider Kosovo's entry and exit points to be official international borders, attempts to enter Serbia from Kosovo may be futile unless you initially entered Kosovo from Serbia. Additionally if you plan to hitchhike into Kosovo, I wouldn't ...

Based on the Sophia airport website, with its lack of information on left luggage options, combined with the fact that several other sites mention that there is not left luggage on the airport, I would say that you can't leave your luggage at the airport. Wikitravel has a page about Sophia and they do mention luggage several times on the page, including ...

The Central Bus Station has a website http://www.centralnaavtogara.bg/index.php In the dropdown Дестинация select БАНСКО. So the last bus from the Central Bus station seems to be leaving at 16:45 I have not found an authoritative website for Buses from Ovcha Kupel. This site of the Bansko municipality lists slightly different times: ...

Since i couldn't find any conclusive information on the rumor that splitting the trip from Bucharest to Sofia makes it cheaper i decided to do some empirical research so here goes: Direct train from Bucharest(from Bucharest Nord) to Sofia costs 140 ROM (35euros) lei and there are few departures per day, 12:55, 23:55 that i am aware of. Direct bus costs 52 ...

I bought an extra ticket for my backpack for a bus ride from Sofia airport to the city center. The girl selling the bus tickets told me to do this. The bus eventually got crowded, so I realized the ticket wasn't for a bus seat, but for taking up room in the bus. I would have felt embarrassed taking up two seats, when there are elders coming on the bus. The ...
