Studentski Grad, as the name suggests, is home to the majority of Sofia’s 16 universities, hence a heavily populated student area. The arts and social scene is particularly bohemian and vibrant. If you want to escape the bright lights of the city for something more serene, you can head out to the Boyana district. This district is located at the foot of Vitosha Mountain (perfect for wandering amongst the forested lower slopes) and breathe the fresh mountain air.
