We took the cable car as far as it would go which afforded stunning views of the city and surrounding area. We didn't climb the mountain itself but had a mooch around the flatter bit where the cable car lands. Really clear views and a nice way to spend some time. There is a place to get food and drink but we had taken our is and it was nice to sit and watch the view while munching!

We live visiting the mountain. It has a beautiful view of the city and a lot of options for short and long hikes. The park has many transportation options too. It's a perfect day trip option.

We were only in Sofia for a couple of days but didn't want to miss the chance to venture up Vitosha Mountain. We were in Sofia on Sunday which helped as the cable cars are only open on weekends and holidays. We first tried to go up Simeonovo Cable Car by catching the bus 122 outside Vitosha Metro Station. Unfortunately when we got there we found out it was closed but fortunately for us a couple told us as soon as we got off the bus so we could just stay on the bus. They'd been waiting an hour to get the bus back. We then headed all the way back and got the bus 93 to the Dragalevtsi chair lift. It was running so we got it up the mountain. The views were amazing. We also had a great walk around when we were at the top and drink and snacks. Unfortunately because we didn't wear proper walking shoes we couldn't do too much exploring. On the way down we found out that one of the cable cars had broken. They offered us a bus down or we could walk. We decided to walk. It was a difficult walk. Very steep with uneven ground. Fortunately we are good walkers so were ok but others we walked past including families were finding it treacherous and dangerous. We really enjoyed our day up the mountain and would do it again. Be prepared for the cable cars to stop working though.

An other dimention for your city trip. Beautiful lake and waterfalls. We did this trip with the Sofia Green Tours. This are volunteers and the tour is free. The guides speaks english and give a lot of information about the neigbourhood. They organise also tours in the city centre, so as a free food tour.
