Lovely street with awesome view, when it's not fully crowded. Otherwise isn't possible to walk, especially in the summer. But you can always take a tour to the nearby small blocks, which are really calm for a walk.

Could be anywhere. Go one block east or west and find the real places. Either end is fine but the Boulevard itself is just a useful landmark

I might be missing something but this just seemed like a high street to me? I guess it's good for restaurants and bars, but I didn't see anything historic (though that H&M needs an update BIG TIME!)

Vitosha Boulevard is the main pedestrian street in Sofia. It's full of bustling cafes, restaurants and bars along with bookstores and clothing stores. It's a must for a night out on the town or a slow weekend walk.

firstly, great to be able to amble along a boulevard without the danger and noise of speeding vehicles. This is basically a very wide road with lots of individual shops and a variety of eating places. The eateries are good in that they have large glass walled sections on the pavement to allow you to have outdoor eating with warmth... More

A great place to walk and shop at the same time! You will also find many restaurants. Best part is no cars on the streets!
