Advice for travellers

Travelling with children

With its uneven pavement and heavy traffic, Sofia can be challenging for parents with small kids. Nevertheless, there are several attractions aimed at younger visitors. Babysitting services aimed at visitors are still fairly rare, though some larger hotels may be able to provide day-care services for guests.

Sofia Zoo Small collection of large mammals, including lions, tigers and elephants. Free to kids under seven years old.

Muzeiko Family-friendly science and technology museum with plenty of interactive exhibits to delight children from 6 to 16 years of age.

Kokolandia Three-part climbing park and obstacle course, with different sections aimed at different ages, starting at five years of age.

Maleeva Tennis Club Indoor and outdoor courts as well as equipment rental.
