Girls night in /Hotel Park Inn, Sofia/

Where are you from? Do you know your city? And let me ask you this: which hotel would you stay at, if at any time in the future you have somehow become a tourist in your own town? Because whether you consider it possible or not, this might just happen! I’m a prime example: when…
