Today’s New York Times published a good article about night life in Bulgaria.
It starts with a description of a well-known place for all Bulgarian students – the Studentski grad (Google’s Maps), or Student’s Town – a place, where majority of the students studying in Sofia live. It has been turning into one of the fastest growing areas in Sofia.
The article continues:
At night, many of the area’s 25,000 students — including engineering and economics majors at the Technical University and the University of National and World Economy — hoof it to more than 30 strobe-lighted bars and discos, many hidden behind aged, Soviet-era dorms and publicized only by word of mouth. Spurred by Bulgaria’s accession into the European Union this year, the capital city of Sofia is experiencing a night-life boom. And nowhere is this more apparent that in Studentski Grad, where cheap rents, lax zoning rules and young residents mean that clubs and bars are opening everywhere, from vacant lots to active dormitories.
