Sofia, Your Uber Has Arrived!

December 9, 2014 / Bulgaria


The capital of Bulgaria has it all: old churches, museums, history behind every corner, countless lovely cafés and restaurants, vivid music and art scene, and to top it all off, the magnificent view of Vitosha mountain! With the pilot phase of Uber starting today, you can roam this enigmatic city in unmatched comfort, safety and style.

The ever so stylish Maria Silvestar loved the idea of Uber hitting the streets and was the first person in Sofia to request a ride. The fabulous actress, model and host of Bulgaria’s Got Talent, was ready for a night out when she fired up the app and was promptly picked up by an Uber car. She got a convenient ride, arriving at her destination safely and in style.
