SIXT services in Sofia

One-day rentals and weekend rentals are popular with tourists visiting Sofia and its surrounding areas. Take your Sofia car hire to the next level and choose from a range of bookable extras, such as Wi-Fi, sat nav and unlimited mileage. If your plan is to visit the historic centre, a compact car is the best choice as it can fit into tighter spaces and find better parking spots.

What to do while in Sofia

There is plenty to do in Sofia for all travellers: history-lovers shouldn’t miss the St. Alexander Nevski Cathedral and St. George Rotunda in the city centre, and should pay a visit to the city of Plovdiv, best reached by car (1h 30min journey). To enjoy green spaces inside the city, there’s no better place than the iconic Borisova Gradina park. For nature and hiking lovers, the best option is to take your Sofia car hire outside the capital to the Rila Mountains, about a 2h drive from Sofia. 

Summer 2021 in Sofia

Summer is the best time to hike up to the Rila Monastery and visit the seven Rila Lakes in the mountains, which are frozen during the winter. The Black Sea coast is also quite popular during the warmer months, and many tourists embark on the 5h road trip from Sofia to Varna. Additionally, you can take advantage of the warmer temperatures to take one of the many free walking tours of Sofia’s historic city centre.
