Go there for if you want to experience real socialism. The neighborhood is big enough and it's full with buildings from communist era. Reminds me of East Berlin.

A neighborhood far from the center of Sofia, not safe at all, especially if you're a tourist or someone new there. Nothing to be seen there.

I'm confused as to why a residential area would be listed on things to do and see in Sofia. Especially a residential area that looks like this? I've lived in Sofia for 15 years and have only been to Nadezhda a coupe of times.

Ugley buildings from the socialist time, nothing to see, nothing to do, if you like to feel the spirit of the ex communist life style - this is the place!
