Hhaahahhahaha,,this is crazy. How can Buglaria award an award to itself? Absolutly nuts! And to say Sofia is a "green city"? Give me a break. Look at all the cars on the road from over 30 years old, and the exhaust that comes out of them. With our famous corruption, anything passes the technik inspection. And we breathe in the fumes from all these crap cars. Green city, I would call it smog city.

This is excellent news and just reflects the fact that Bulgaria leads the world when it comes to waste recycling, public transportation, wind farms, solar energy and a host of other innovative environmental initiatives. Bravo!
