1. By tram No 1,3,4,6,7

Get off at the 3rd stop at " Hristo Botev" blvd. and go back (opposite of the direction you've arrived) 2 streets only on the RIGHT side of the blvd. On the second street "Balkan" turn right (you'll be able to turn right only).
Our street is only on the RIGHT side of "Hristo Botev" blvd. if you're going direction back to the train station, it has no continuation on the left side of the blvd.
We are at the end of the street, which is probably one of the shortest in Sofia.

3.By Metro: - not recommended because we're exactly in the middle between the first and the second stop.
4. Walking:
Walk 15 minutes along Hristo Botev Boulevard direction to the center, please walk on the LEFT side ONLY, otherwise you cannot see the sign "Balkan street", because it has no continuation on the other side of the boulevard.

5. By Taxi

Tell the driver the corner "Balkan" / "Bratya Miladinovi" str., they know "Bratia Miladinovi str. , rather than the very short street "Balkan".
We are the second building on the corner with "Bratya Miladinovi str." (Miladinovi Brothers).

From the Airport:
1. We provide pick up service - 15/ 20 euro per car day/ night time.
2. By public transport: take bus No 84 or 284 and get off at the last stop in the center.
Continue to the left 150 meters and you'll see the Metro stop in front of Sofia University, take the Metro for 1 stop only and get off at the most Central "Serdika" station. Take the exit where "Pirotska" street is written, it's a pedestrian street and it's only on the left side of Maria Luisa blvd. At the end of the street you'll see tram lines, there look to the right and you'll see "Y' shaped street, you have to take left side of the "Y" or "Bratia Miladinovi" street, the second on the left side is "Balkan" street.
