When we visited Sofia, we saw The Palace of Justice. The lion that you see in front is actually really important in Bulgaria! There are lions in their coat of arms, dating back into the 1200s--that's a long time! You can read more about it here on wikipedia, if you wish.
When I visited Sofia, I felt like a baby. I mean, America just hasn't been around as long as majority of the world. There is so much history in other countries that you don't get in the U.S. I'm not a history person really, but I do find it fascinating sometimes, seeing things before me and learning about them. It makes it feel more real than a textbook.
Thanks for stopping by!
