Commenting article: Bulgaria's Student City - Where Your Call Center Agent Lives

A peculiar and refreshing article by Leif Petterse from Lonely Planet recently described several cities around the world as potential sex objects. Here is what it said about Bulgaria's Sofia:

"This one may not have a day job, because it seems like you only ever see her while you're out clubbing. She's probably the sexiest one in the room, but she always smells like cigarettes and alcohol."

While the curious traveler may indeed find an abundance of bargain opportunities to get a really heavy hangover in Sofia, there is a certain place which surely can be considered the epitome of the city's vibrant, "sexy" and dangerous nightlife. It is called Studentski grad (Student city) - and it is still considered a student campus area.

Student City Sofia?

Sounds like any student city anywhere in the western countries, minus the chalga.
Sex, drugs, & musica are here to stay, ever since 1968..

"Sex, drugs, & musica are here to stay, ever since 1968.."

In 1968 it was "sex, drugs, and rock&roll"

Look at these matzki in the photo. Are they university students or Chalga girls? Difficult to tell the difference.
