"Malkite Pet Kyosheta" in Sofia, literally the Little Five Corners, it a sweet little nickname given to a square where five little streets meet...

Malkite Pet Kyosheta - translated literally, the name means The Little Five Corners, a sweet nickname given by Sofia centre locals to the place where some iconic small streets cross their paths to form a cozy square. Not to be mistaken with The Big Five Corners (Pette Kyosheta), a similar infrastructure arrangement, but not nearly as charming, as it meets together 5 big boulevards instead. Confusingly close names, right?!

I always thought that experiencing a city like a local means strolling around and getting lost in its small street labyrinths. Malkite Pet Kyosheta offer that opportunity, even though they are in a very central location. Wander down any of the 5 small streets and you will find enchanting old houses, little shops and nice restaurants as well as iconic places such as Sveti Sedmochislenitsi church.

What I really like about the place is the variety of small galleries - such as Lale, Sabai and a few other unnamed ones, which offer equally wonderful examples of great Bulgarian handicraft and jewelry. Here you can also find a few great second hand shops with a superb selection of clothes and handbags - I often visit them for great outfits.

If you are not really into shopping, then you can enjoy some coffee, beer or food in many of the restaurants around - I recommend a healthy cake in Zoya, vegan food in Sun & Moon, the salads in Ugo (open 24/7!) and some (or many) beers in Halbite. Overall, a great spot to spend a rainy afternoon, I’d say!

"G8": a small cinema in Sofia with three screens. The place combines good films with a nice glass roof café. I feel as if I'm at a private screening here!
