Hey there! If visiting Sofia these days is in your to do list I want to share with you something that deserves your attention. ItвЂ™s вЂ?вЂ™Vienna daysвЂќ that happens here from 8th till 14th February. The main attraction of this event is a retro tram with two wagons that you can use to see Sofia for free. ItвЂ™s authentic old machine that in the beginning of 20 century crossed the streets of the former kingdom of Bulgaria.
ItвЂ™s not just the fact that itвЂ™s for free. When step in the wooden wagon youвЂ™ll be meet and greet by a smiley young girls who will give you a original Austrian waffle and your free ticket. By the time of your ride youвЂ™ll listen to an interesting facts about Sofia and Vienna and their relation (unfortunately just in Bulgarian) and also great Viennese waltzes. The journey lasts 2 hours and goes all around the city center so it definitely worth it!
Other part of this celebration is a five meters high transparent heart full with waffles which will be positioned in вЂ?вЂ™Mall В SerdicaвЂќ. On 11 February will happen the annual Viennese ball, and 13th В and 14th will be conference days in the art halls of Square 500.
Actually Bulgarian-Austrian relations dates back to the end of 19th and beginning of 20th century. By that time our country was newly liberated from Ottoman rule and Vienna had a big cultural influence here. Maybe youвЂ™ll notice this when you see most of the oldest buildings in the city center. ThatвЂ™s because they were built mainly from Austrian architects or Bulgarians who had their study in Austro-Hungary.
