The subway section to Sofia Airport starts functioning Thursday at 1 pm.

Starting 1 pm on Thursday until midnight, passengers who board a train at one of the new stations will travel free of charge across the entire subway network in Sofia.

The new subway section, which has four stations, including Druzhba, Iskarsko Shose, Sofiyska Sveta gora, and Sofia Airport, will service the residents of the Druzhba residential districts and the nearby districts, according to reports of Darik radio.

The launch of the new subway section necessitates changes to the routes of a number of buses, including bus line # 10 and bus line # 384, in order to provide people with a direct connection to the new subway stations.

The official ceremony for the launch of the new subway section starts at 10 am on Thursday and will be attended by Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, Deputy Prime Minister Tomislav Donchev, and Sofia Mayor Yordanka Fandakova.

The project for the 5-km extension of the first line of the Sofia subway network from the Tsarigradsko Shose Blvd to Sofia Airport has a price tag of BGN 407 M, with BGN 215 M of the total provided under operational program Transport 2007-2013, according to the press office of Bulgaria’s Transport Ministry.

Gosho - I, unlike you I suspect, have not only been to Asia but lived there for years. Millennia of culture does not ipso facto make present-day people civilised, it merely gives them more to be ashamed of....

Primitive and uncivilized Asia....
Seedy nut....., how can you even say such a stupid thing?!?
What is your education and skills?
A cheap forum commentator?
China for example is a 5000 year civilization. They invented many things among which happens to be capitalism for example, way before the western world even knew about economics. ...

How about Korea with Samsung, Hyundai and etc...

Seedy walnut, you are embarrassing Bulgaria and the Balkans with your ignorance.
Go study something and go visit Asia!

"uncivilised and primitive Asia....."
What about Latin America and Africa? Are they civilised?

And of course "our" Chinese friends also claim EU money for producing rubbish cars in Bulgaria - doubtless some of this money is paid to idiots like Gosho to drone on and on about the "wonders" of uncivilised and primitive Asia.....

The subway in Sofia is probably the only significant positive development for the last 25 years and few crippled highways built with EU funds which are falling apart already and there is no money to fix them.
In the mean while we can see below what did our Chinese friends achieved in the form of railway infrastructure....
