The home of Sofia Marathon was founded thousands of years ago and today it continues to develop as the country’s cultural and economic centre. Sofia is Bulgaria’s capital and one of the oldest capitals in Eastern Europe.
Sofia has been settled for many millennia. In honour of its hot springs, which you should visit after running the marathon in Sofia, in the 8th centuryBCE the Thracian tribes settled here and gave the city its first name Serdika or Serdonpolis. Serdika was the favourite city of Constantine the Great (reign 306-337), who said: “Serdika is my Rome”.
