» THE SOFIA WEEKLY is the first English language online weekly in Bulgaria.

It covers events from the previous day and also news that made the headlines over the week, commentaries, analyses and other various useful information.

The Sofia Weekly is distributed free of charge and was born after www.dariknews.bg and www.novinite.com, Bulgaria's leading online news providers, pooled their efforts and promised to launch new successful products on the market.

It has the ambition to be the primary concise and diverse source on different subjects of Bulgarian political, economic, cultural and social life. It provides analysis of the key changes in the political environment and gives clear insights into the business trends. It also includes color stories from Bulgaria, which do not make it to the international news wires.
