The 10 Least Romantic Places in Sofia: Stay Away on Valentine’s Day

Written by on February 7, 2017 in Latest, Leisure, Miscellaneous - No comments

Don’t go to the following places on Valentine’s Day, especially not with your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband or hamster, since these spot are the least romantic ones in all of Sofia. This is the ranked list of places which are so unromantic, they should be bypassed, especially on February 14th.

1. Business Park Sofia

Beware of arrogant supervisors, team leaders, trainers and operation managers (yes, not all of them, we know). This is the least romantic place in Sofia. Try to keep away.

2. The Immigration Office

All expats in Sofia know this place, at Boulevard Maria Luiza, which is unromantic as hell. Don’t go there on Valentine’s Day.

3. This Tram Stop

This ugly tram stop at Boulevard Czar Boris III. might be a million times more attractive than the Business Park, but it still sucks bigtime. And it does not exactly seem romantic.

4. Sofia Airport’s Terminal 1

Another spot in town which is truly unromantic? Try the arrivals building at Sofia Airport’s Terminal 1. It’s the most run-down airport building we have seen since landing at Managua’s Augusto C. Sandino Airport in 1979.

5. This Parking Lot

This parking lot in Sofia’s Mladost quarter is about as swampy and muddy as the Florida Everglades, except there are no freaking crocodiles. This is definitely not the right spot for a romantic walk on Valentine’s Day.

6. Trakia Motorway

Trakia Motorway from Sofia to Burgas is being used by a shocking number of brainless psychopaths. Not romantic at all. 

The imbecile, thinking he is in a 760. It was a 318. Or was it even a 1-series?

7. Tram No. 22

Yet another place to stay away from on Valentine’s Day: Tram no. 22. Slow, dirty, stinky, sticky and loud. A romantic atmosphere? Not here.

8. Boulevard Konstantin Velichkov

Not really the right place for the declaration of love on Valentine’s Day: Boulevard Konstantin Velichkov. Noise, traffic, Diesel clouds and “black holes” will kill any romantic feelings.

9. This Underpass

This underpass at Boulevard Madrid in Sofia does stink and is about as romantic as a tax audit.

10. Pirogov Hospital

Pirogov Hospital. We tried it. And it was far from romantic.
