People in the Park in Sofia, Bulgaria

8 09 2015

So I am back to writing a bit more about my trip to Sofia, Bulgaria.

My visit having been in the summer, the days were long and everyday it was quite hot, around 30C, when the sun was out.  In the evening it cooled down to more comfortable levels and that’s when people started to come out to the parks.  And they did so in big and small groups of all ages, families and friends, young adults often drinking out of big bottles of beer (I think), after purchasing in nearby stores.  Kids were doing homework.  Lots of baby strollers.  Students in big groups talking, smoking, drinking.  Overall very busy.

And there were serious chess games going on (which seemed to start early in the afternoon).


Do you see the clock?







Very peaceful.

Look at the guy sitting by himself on the bench. Is he waiting for an opponent? Looks like it.

Players come and go and I guess they would play with anyone who challenges. I would think regulars would know who to play with though so as to pick an opponent who might be on par in terms of strength. I didn’t see any female players btw!

It’s a shame about the female players. Hope that was just a coincidence and not a regular thing.
