In Bulgaria drinking of mineral water was not popular 5 years ago
Usually Bulgarians drink water from the tap. The water from the tap can be used for cooking, washing and bath. 20 years ago mineral water was considered as healing water and only people with specific health problems had drunken mineral water. In the past the most popular brand was “Hisar” mineral water. It is still one of the top popular brands.
Hisar mineral water bottles look like this

We never ask ourselves how to cross the streets in Sofia We just do it!
During my visits in Western Europe countries I always was surprised the way drivers treat pedestrians. Pedestrians always have priority.
Here in Bulgaria and especially in Sofia, priority has the stronger, and in the most cases this is the man in the car :). But sometimes there are some very brave pedestrians and they have the priority.
What I mean! If there is traffic light – priority has the green light and my recommendation is to cross the streets in Sofia on places with traffic lights or subways.
But you are in Sofia center, there is huge traffic and you can cross the street everywhere in the traffic, only make sure that all cars are stopped at the moment when you step over the road.

There are many souvenirs shops in Sofia, don’t be afraid you can buy souvenirs even when you leave Sofia, after check in at Sofia airport there are some souvenirs shop.
But if you want to enjoy Bulgarian folk art and crafts I recommend to visit souvenir shop in the Royal Palace (at the same building is National Ethnographic museum).
The shop is at Sofia city center, the address is 2 Alexander Batenberg square. When you climb the stairs, enter Royal Palace and on the right is the door of souvenir shop.
