About the tour

In the heart of the Bulgarian capital, there is a small area where religions co-exist demonstratively well together. A mosque, a synagogue and a catholic cathedral keep company to an Eastern Orthodox church. All of them - active religious temples and cultural monuments at the same time. In peace and harmony. How is this possible? We, Bulgarians, are known to be stubborn, wooden heads, with a very high level of confidence in our own opinion. But we can also be curious, and good friends, and have a strong sense of neighbourhood. Let me show you where these qualities of ours are hidden in plain sight.

Meet Simana Markovska

Simana Markovska

Simana is a passionate storyteller. You may find her as Manya the Tourist in her travel blog where she writes about fun travel experiences and interesting destinations. Which, if you ask her, is the whole world; she claims that in every place, there's always something interesting to find. Simana is a certified heriage interpreter and a licensed tour guide. She has over 20 years of experience as a sustainable tourism expert in Bulgaria so you can probably trust her when she says there are few people to know her beloved country better than her. Especially the southwest corner where she lives and where she's willing to take you.
