Why locals love it

It is known for being the cheapest outdoor market in Sofia and besides food you can find clothes, pottery, homemade honey and wine, plumbing equipment and other random things. The market has been recently renovated which has taken some of its charm but the place still retains its authentic and exotic atmosphere.

Why you should visit it

Go there if you want to feel immersed in a slice of Bulgarian market life. You can buy some of the homemade produce or if you don’t fancy buying anything, you can sit at one of the street food kiosks or cafes and watch the life of the market unfold.

Special tip

While in the areа make sure you check out Pirotska str (a cobbled pedestrian street) and have some banitsa (a traditional pastry pie with cheese).

An interesting area as a whole. I love taking my foreign friends there as it is different. It is good to be aware of you personal belongings there, especially if you look like a tourist.
