Wow! I like those snapshots you post. They give is an insight in more non-touristic parts of the cities. I hope to visit chaotic Sofia and oriental Istanbul next year or so, so I'm very interested. How was the night train between these cities?
Keep them coming!

I am posting the pictures in chronological order according to the course of my travel, so Batumi will be the last city I am showing in this thread.

Personally, I like the train very much, itīs a charming old train with a lot of nostalgic atmosphere, and also very cheap (Less than 30€ per person). On the other hand, itīs quite slow (Around 12 hours for a distance of less than 600 kilometers), and itīs always a bit annoying to be woken up at the Bulgarian-Turkish border for the passport control in the middle of the night (Itīs already the 4th time that I travelled to Istanbul by train). Moreover, the line is interrupted at the moment: At the Turkish border, passengers had to change to a Bus for the last 300 kilometers to Istanbul. I have no idea whether this is only temporary or whether the continuous connection from Sofia to Istanbul is being cancelled forever.

Entrance to the complex of the Green mosque and the Green Türbe (Monumental tomb of Osman princes), two masterpieces of Islamic art of the early 15th century. First the Türbe:

Too bad you'll end in Batumi, because that's where the fun begins.

Thank you for the information. I'll inform myself about the connection in the future. Anyway I hate to be woken up by customs officers....
