About Wizz air Sofia Marathon

Sofia is Bulgaria’s capital and one of the oldest capitals in Eastern Europe. Founded thousands of years ago, today it continues to develop as the country’s cultural and economic centre.

Sofia has been settled for many millennia. In honour of its hot springs, in the 8th century BCE the Thracian tribes settled here gave the city its first name Serdika or Serdonpolis. Serdika was the favourite city of Constantine the Great (reign 306-337), who said: “Serdika is my Rome”.

Sofia preserves many valuable monuments to its long and stored past. Visitors exploring the city’s streets can see remnants of the Eastern Gate from the day’s when Sofia was Serdika, dating from the 2nd -4th centuries CE.

The oldest church in Sofia is the Saint George Rotunda. It is thought that the church was built in the 6th century, during the reign of Constantine the Great.
