Airport Car Rental
The capital city might not be Bulgaria’s number one travel destination — that title belongs to Varna and the rest of the Black Sea coast -— but it offers plenty of fun if you scratch beneath the surface. Independent, historic, and cultured, it can also be used as a hub from which you can explore the northeast of the country. With that in mind, here are three interesting attractions in and around Sofia:
- National Museum of History. Appropriately monumental, the National History Museum is among both the largest and most interesting in Bulgaria. Occupying what used to be the residence of Bulgaria’s former communist dictator, the museum has more than 600,000 pieces of all things Bulgarian and covers everything from the country’s Hellenic and Roman-influenced past to more recent eras.
- Churches. Bulgarians are overwhelmingly Eastern Orthodox, a fact exemplified by the many beautiful churches that can be found in the capital. The most famous among them is indubitably Alexander Nevsky Cathedral (if you’ve ever seen a tourist video from Sofia, it almost definitely was featured in it), but the UNESCO-recognized Boyana Church and the 1,600-year-old Saint George Rotunda are also not to be missed.
- Rila National Park. The most visited natural landmark near Sofia is definitely Mount Vitosha which is located just a 20-minute drive south of the city center. However, if you’re looking for a wilder, less crowded experience, you can’t do much better than visit Rila National Park. Located a 90-minute drive south of the capital, this beautiful nature preserve is centered around seven highland lakes and is famous for its diverse flora and fauna.

Services and facilities
Nearest gas station
Others coming from the south of the city and returning a car to one of the terminals will find an OMV station along Alexander Malinov Blvd just north of the intersection with Andrey Saharov Street the most convenient. After this station, the road becomes highway-like with no further entrances prior to reaching the airport.
Those coming from the south and returning a car to off-airport locations could exit onto Christopher Columbus Blvd. to reach a Shell station and then continue along that road to the off-airport rental locations.
