The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Sofia Synagogue

The synagogue in Sofia is the largest in the Balkans and was built between 1903 -1909.

Sofia's Jewish population is around 5000 - down from 50000 prior to World War II

This was the first time I've been in a synagogue and found the experience really interesting.

It's possible to have a good look around and costs about 2 lev per person admission.

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
