The climate of Sofia (Bulgaria)
Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria and is located in the western part of the country. Sofia is surrounded by mountains which influence the climate in the city. During the winter there may be a lot of inconvenience caused by smog and mist which form because of the absence of wind during humid weather conditions. During the winter flights to and from Sofia International airport are often delayed or even cancelled because of these phenomena. During the winter it may get cold in Sofia; snowfall is not uncommon either. During the summer temperatures rise to pleasantly high values. Because of the absence of wind it may even feel warmer than it actually is. During spring and fall the weather is unstable. Within one or two days the weather may change completely. A period with subzero temperatures may be followed by spring like weather. If you plan a trip to Sofia you should bear the aforementioned in mind whilst packing.
