Location: to be announced

Fair concept: Compact

Discover Sofia after participating in our MASTER AND MORE postgraduate student recruitment fairs

"The city that grows but does not age" is the motto of Sofia, Europe’s second oldest capital city. Layers of civilization cover the largest city in Bulgaria. Sofia looks back at almost 7000 years of history and Greek, Roman, Ottoman and Soviet influence, evident through its numerous churches and monuments.

ORTHODOX ART AND ARCHITECTURE
The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral was erected in honour of the Russian Emperor Alexander the Second, known as the Tsar – Liberator from Ottoman Domination. The Neo-Byzantine style cathedral unfolds a breath-taking and majestic view with its surface area of 3,170sqm. Inside the cathedral crypt you could find one of the largest collections of Orthodox icons.
Tip: While in the neighbourhood, visit the Parliament Square, the main Building of Sofia University, the National Library, the ornately-decorated National Theatre and the Old City Garden across from the former Royal palace.

Slightly smaller, yet not less impressive are the Saint Sofia Church, the Saint George Rotunda Church and Boyana Church – ancient churches dating back to Roman and Byzantine time, covered with well preserved layers of frescoes are thought to be the most comprehensive representation of East European art.

THE SQUARE OF TOLERANCE
A mosque, a Catholic cathedral, an orthodox church and a synagogue, all four within few minutes’ walk of each other in the very centre of Sofia are forming the so called Square of Tolerance. Each of them has a story to tell and all of them are equally respected by the Bulgarians. The 16th century Banya Bashi Mosque, designed by the great Ottoman architect, Mimar Sinan is the only remaining example in Bulgaria of a domed roof on a cubic base.
The Sveti Yosif (Saint Joseph) Catholic Cathedral was completely destroyed in a bombing during WW2 and was rebuilt only recently. The synagogue is the biggest Sephardic temple in Europe. The roof of the Sveta Nedelya Cathedral was blown up in an assault against the Bulgarian monarch Tsar Boris III, carried out by the Communist Party in 1925.

MUSEUMS
Sofia has museums and galleries for every taste at affordable prices. From the National Archaeological Museum through the Museum of Socialist Art to the National Museum of history – just take a pick. The galleries offer a chance to enjoy simultaneously the local and foreign, the traditional and contemporary art.

VITOSHA MOUNTAIN
One of the symbols of Sofia is Vitosha Mountain and its highest peak Cherni Vruh which are situated in the outskirts of the capital. The Vitosha Mountain does not only reveal a stunning and majestic view but also provides opportunities for hiking, alpinism, skiing and snowboarding.

FOOD AND DRINKS
Bulgarian cuisine is combining the rich influence of the Ottoman Empire with a provincial cooking style that uses Bulgaria’s fresh vegetables and flavour-packed herbs to the fullest. A must-try is home-made sheep cheese, slow-baked stews in ramekins and the various vegetarian dishes available as well different kinds of pastry - mostly eaten at breakfast.
Tip: What better way to experience Bulgarian culture than to visit a Mehana (Bulgarian tavern) and to enjoy Bulgarian meals and beverages while witnessing the enchanting folklore dances and songs Bulgaria has to offer. The swift dance Rachenitsa impresses the observer with fascinating footwork and flirty hand and head gestures. The most exotic of all is the Nestinarstvo – a barefoot dance performed on embers - a unique mixture of Eastern Orthodox beliefs and older pagan traditions and a truly memorable experience.

NIGHTLIFE
The nightlife in Berlin has a long and rich tradition. There are countless clubs, bars or just random places with diverse music; it doesn’t matter if you like to listen to jazz or techno, there is a place in Berlin for everyone. The nightlife starts rather late around midnight but most of the clubs are open until the morning. We would recommend starting at one of these locations: Kastanienallee, Kollwitzplatz or Hackescher Markt.

SHOPPING
There are shopping malls in Berlin, but what you should consider too is visiting one of many flea markets happening regularly in Berlin every week. You will find everything you can or cannot imagine - unique, artistic, old-fashioned stuff for good prices and delicious homemade food.

Frankfurt is traditionally credited with originating the frankfurter but there are different theories regarding its origin.

Whatever the story behind its origin is, we are happy to be able to enjoy its rich taste today.

Discover Leipzig after participating in our MASTER AND MORE postgraduate student recruitment fair

Leipzig – Saxony's largest and coolest city, a city of history, a trade-fair mecca, a city of music. Don't be surprised if you catch yourself humming a melody as you walk around the city - over 500 composers have lived and composed in Leipzig throughout the centuries. Come along with us on a musically enriched journey around the city.

City of Music
One of the city’s greatest sons and the most influential composer of the High Romantic era, Richard Wagner, was born, studied and composed in Leipzig. Johann Sebastian Bach was also actively involved in Leipzig’s musical life from 1723 until his death in 1750. He was responsible for the services and special ceremonies at the churches of St. Nicholas and St. Thomas.
Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy established the first German music conservatory here in 1843. As Leipzig's most important Gewandhaus Kapellmeister, he was responsible for completely reforming the musical life of the city, and he instigated the Bach renaissance in Germany. Clara Schumann is the most famous of all Leipzig's female musicians. At the age of 9 she gave her first performance at the Gewandhaus and 7 years later she was already one of the finest pianists in Europe. Robert Schumann came to Leipzig to study law but after only a year, he abandoned law in favour of music. His love for music led him to his other great love - Clara Schumann.

SIGHTSEEING
The landmark of Leipzig is the 'Battle of the Nations memorial' - a 96 m high monument that commemorates the 100th Anniversary of Napoleon's defeat at the Battle of the Nations in Leipzig in 1813. Overcome the challenging 500 steps to the top to be rewarded with a spectacular view of the city. Most of the city’s sights are located within walking distance, e. g. the Old City Hall, St. Thomas Church, St. Nicholas Church, diverse museums and galleries. Cultural enjoyment is provided by the Gewandhaus, the Leipzig Opera or the world-famous St. Thomas Boys Choir.

TRABANT TOUR
Experience the beautiful sights of Leipzig in the iconic Trabi car- the symbol of the former East Germany. Meaning "satellite" or "companion" in German, the name was inspired by Soviet “Sputnik”. In the past you had to wait for 15 years to get a Trabi, today you can fully enjoy driving the two-stroke engine car with the Trabant city tour.

EXPLORE PLAGWITZ
Plagwitz – the first large-scale industrial area in Germany to be planned from scratch and the engine of Leipzig's industry for 150 years. Nowadays the architecture has been renovated and looks highly impressive against the backdrop of the Karl Heine Canal. It is a favorite place for professional artists and people with creative flair or bohemian lifestyle. Karl-Heine-Straße is the main street on which you will find cafes, shops and bars. The other busy street in Plagwitz is Zschochersche Straße – lots of great Asian restaurants and the Elster-Passage shopping centre. In the very west of Plagwitz is the famous Spinnerei - former massive cotton factory reclaimed as an artist and artisan community with numerous galleries and exhibition halls.

CABARET NIGHT
Leipzig has a proud history of cabaret clubs. They offer great and affordable fun and are home to all sorts of artists, including comedians, singers, dancers, magicians, actors and, of course, political satire. Crown your trip with an unforgettable experience at one of the many cabaret clubs.
