After catching the Eurostar from London to Paris you will travel on to Munich on City Night Line sleeper train 'Cassiopeia' which is fitted with 1, 2 and 3 bed compartments and 4 and 6 berth couchettes.

It is home to some of the earliest known metal-workings in human history and has a huge history that includes two Bulgarian empires as well as being part of the Ottoman empire. Its location has made it a crossroads for different cultures and ideas and this is more than apparent in the architecture of the capital city of Sofia, which is the 15th largest city in Europe and is even home to prehistoric settlements located near the royal palace. So whether you want to enjoy some Rakia or learn more about the history of Europe, Bulgaria is a must visit destination!
