Thank you guys all for the comments. I'll take some new shots as soon as some snow cover the streets to add some holiday flavor to the thread.

It's a common name here but it doesn't mean wisdom as it is in Greek language.

Originally the city was named Serdica(Sardica) though back in Thracian times, and later was known also with the Slavic name Sredets.

St.Sofia church today:

I've tried to capture the Christmas spirit as much as possible although it was a big mess in the city center due to all the construction works and the snow was starting to melt.

I can tell you what i mean though

'Vitosha' blvd., pictures that you have posted of is pedestrian since 1st january 2007... while on the photos you postred, there is still automobile traffic on it.

This buidling .... looks like this now...

And most of the other buildings on those pics were renovated in the last several years ... like this one - a photo taken by me in the summer of 2007.

If you want to post photos in this thread - OK, it would be nice to see them, just make sure they are at least a bit more recent.

Yes, these are old no denial of that, I said I was only posting them to show the difference between winter and spring. They're from March and May 2005, respectively.
