Sofia

 The underground store. The stump by the window is to sit on while you place your order. Unique!!


                The local pizza store. Pizza isn't pizza without ketchup, mustard and mayo.

Lady Sofia was placed in the centre of the city in the last 10 year replacing another statue. There was controversy over her being placed there. The Orthodox Church did not want her as the symbol of the city, they are christian and Lady Sofia to them represents paganism. The wrath representing knowledge and the owl the symbol of wisdom are pagan symbols. Besides the fact the they feel she is not dressed appropriately. The city won the battle, because she is the centre of the City.
