If I take the metro to the airport, I will arrive to the newest Terminal 2.
But, how do I get to Terminal 1 from Terminal 2? Google Maps says it's 1,4 Km far away.

When I landed last March, I landed at the Terminal 1 from Barcelona. In the next month I will have to wait for a friend at the airport, and this question is in my head without solution

I found the difference. Inside the train station Obelya designated as blue and red in Wikipedia. I understand that the transit station, but where is it?

I decided to just temporarily merge two lines into one.

I connected the train cars together in a composition. This is convenient when viewing photos of the train car and, if necessary, move to the next train car in the one train.

New signs in Sofia metro

Hello everyone

Our NGO Spasi Sofia/Save Sofia, (founded and run by five forum members of this forum) have designed and implemented new signs for Sofia metro. It is our free gift to the society we live in and imput towards a better, more organized and welcoming Bulgarian capital. Now the first test stage is being implemented, and if it is successful in September we should put the new signs in the whole system.

For now we have made geographical maps of Sofia and the metro in the trains and a new type of signs for Sofia metro on Mladost 1 station (where you can transfer between the two lines). The signs are bilingual, have tourist information and make the Airport connection by metro very easy for foreigners.

We would love to hear from you, as foreigners which are not familiar with the city. We are now collecting opinions and critics, so we can improve our design. It will be very helpful and very much appreciated.


Geographical maps in the trains:












Sings on Mladost 1 station (before going down the stairs to the platforms):











Transfer signs on the platforms (where line M1 and M2 branch):

Thanks once again

In March 2014, a tender for construction of the central section of the line was announced. The section is 7 km long and includes 7 stations, two of them transfer to lines 1 and 2. With the announcement of the tender it became clear, that the initial plans for 19 stations had been partly amended and 2 of the stations will be not be built, one at Doyran boulevard and another at Shipka street. The tunnel of the central section shall be excavated by a TBM, while the construction of stations shall be awarded to other companies. The construction of the section shall be completed within 45 months.[25] In January 2015, a tender for 20 trains, that shall serve the central section of the line, was announced. Driverless train operation, with Grade of Automation 3 (GoA 3), and platform screen doors will ensure the safety of the passengers. Unlike lines 1 and 2, where the trains collect power through a third rail, line 3 trains will be equipped with pantographs.[26][27] CAF and Siemens applied bids in the tender for the trains.[28]

Contractors have been chosen for building the central section of line 3, but one of the applicants has brought the decision into the court and we will have to wait several more months for the signing of all contracts.

Many good news for Sofia metro today..

1. Metro station Vitosha on the 2nd line is 50% completed and will be open in august 2016.

2. Even though the initial plans were to construct only 8 metro stations of the 3rd line till 2019, today it was announced that the stations will be 12 (9 underground, 1 on the ground and 2 overground). The construction works are expected to start later this year.

3. Some 20 minutes ago it was announced that Siemens is the chosen supplier of metro trains for the 3rd line with its Inspiro model
