IF you are into Euro­pean cul­ture, the Bulgarian cap­i­tal of­fers a lot to see and do. Sev­eral mu­se­ums shed light on the his­tory, ar­chi­tec­ture, arche­ol­ogy, mil­i­tary his­tory and nat­u­ral his­tory of this for­mer Soviet bloc coun­try while those af­ter shop­ping can for­get Soviet era aus­ter­ity in Vi­tosha Boule­vard. The city's ar­chi­tec­tural her­itage in­cludes the 4th cen­tury St Ge­orge Ro­tunda, bru­tal­ist com­mu­nist era hous­ing es­tates and the St Alexan­der Nevsky cathedral, the largest Ro­man Ortho­dox cathedral in the world. And you can still have enough dosh to visit the Vi­tosha moun­tains with a five star ho­tel room cost­ing $132 per night.
