THE HOOF NIGHT HIKE
The Hoof is an area located in Vitosha mountan. It was named after the shape of the small peak, which resembles a horse hoof. The location itself offers a unique overview of the whole city of Sofia and that is why it is exactly here where in 1985 the Television Tower of Sofia was built. Today it is recognized as part of the iconic view of the mountain, as seen from the city. Back in the mid 20th century a 2 km cabin lift operated from Kniajevo to the peak, but now the spot is only accessible by foot or by car. Although any time of the year is good for visiting this sight, probably the most memorable one would be at New Years eve when you could witness the whole city exploding with fireworks as the clock strikes midnight.
If you are in Sofia, find the time to go up at night before hitting the bars and clubs, you won’t regret it!
