Looking around the city, you will reveal its 4,000 years of history that all of its attractions are soaked in. The city started as a Thracian settlement and its growth prompted Constantine the Great to call it ''My Rome''. Later the area became a part of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires and then a Soviet country. With the fall of the Soviet Union in 1989, Sofia moved forward both economically and in terms of infrastructure.
Today the main share in the city's income comes from trade and transport. These activities place Sofia at the heart of Bulgaria’s economy and the city is also ranked as the country's financial hub with Bulgarian National Bank, Bulgarian Stock Exchange and much international business headquartered in Sofia.
Almost all population of the city numbering 1,249,798 residents is busy employed in these industries. The biggest part of these people, about 96 percent is ethnic Bulgarians making Sofia a city with a monotonous ethnic face.
This lack of cultural variety is made up for by the geographical tapestry of the city, Sofia is sandwiched between the Balkan Mountains to the north and the Vitosha Mountains to the south and covers the flat area of plain 550m above sea.
