About Wizz Air Sofia Marathon

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

Sofia has been settled for many millennia. In honour of its hot springs, which you should visit after running the marathon in Sofia,  in the 8th century BCE the Thracian tribes settled here and 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”.

When running the course of Sofia Marathon you will be able to see many historical sites and buildings. 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.
