SOFIA History

 
 

One of the oldest cities in Europe, the history of Sofia (Thracian name Serdika, ancient Bulgarian name: Sredetz) can be traced back some 7000 years ago - prehistoric settlements were excavated in the centre of the present city. The well preserved town walls (especially their substructures) from antiquity date back before the 7th century BC, when Thracians established their city next to the most important and highly respected mineral spring, still functioning today. Sofia has had several names in the different periods of its existence, and remnants of the city's millenary history can still be seen today alongside modern landmarks.

 

Sofia's development as a significant settlement owes much to its central position in the Balkans. It first became part of Bulgaria during The First Bulgarian Empire in 809 and was proclaimed for capitol in 1879, just a year after the Bulgarian liberation from the Ottoman Empire in 1878.
