Forget about the tiring rounds on the main streets peppered with shops of famous brands, the boring amusement parks or the endless search for a lunch spot. The mall fashion in Bulgaria has outlived the criticism that ascribed it only leeting glory and has now grown into a favourite way to spend leisure time in the big Bulgarian cities.
The summer is especially suitable time to discover the pleasure of trade centres – the cool corridors are to be preferred over the scorching sun, and the mid-season sales guarantee you good buys. And these are not the only reasons to stay there the whole day. The modern bars and the fresh restaurants are excellent places for leisurely lunch or an afternoon meeting with friends for coffee, and each of more than 20 malls in Bulgaria offers you a unique selection of additional entertainment – from cinema, bowling and arcade games hall to spa parlours, fitness, ice rink or casino.
