Meet the birds of Sofia
Sofia is among the European capitals with the highest diversity of birds - more than 200 species can be seen here. One reason is the varied mosaic of parks that combine different habitats on their territory. Even in the smallest green spots in the city you'll see birds and you'll hear their song. The parks in Sofia offer you an excellent opportunity to get to know our bird neighbours better. Among the easiest to see are the great tits, blackbirds, jays, magpies and chaffinches. With a bit more patience you'll be able to observe species like the green woodpecker, the nuthatch, the long-tailed tit, the wren and the robin. The spots on this map are easily accessible and yet they will surprise you with an exceptional diversity of birds. Go for a slow walk in the park, listen carefully for the songs of its inhabitants and you will be surprised by the winged treasures hidden in its houndarios!
