Sofia, Bulgaria

Sofia's Hagia Sofia stands as a visual reminder of the 6th century, a time when Bulgaria was part of the Byzantine Empire.  In the empire's capital city, Constantinople, stood the most magnificent church in the world, a church by the same name:  Hagia Sofia.  Translated from Greek, it means "holy wisdom."  Guess why Bulgaria's capital was christened Sofia.  [2010]
