Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

Yes. Strollers are hard to use downtown as in most European capitals (cobblestones, lack of sidewalk or cars parked on the sidewalk, etc.). There is a big bar scene, clubs, music, etc. - May 17, 2016
Great for everyone. - Dec 18, 2014
You need to find your own entertainment, there is little Embassy community. - Nov 23, 2014
Yes for all. Almost all restaurants come with little playgrounds in Sofia. (But note, no high chairs at mall food courts). - Aug 16, 2014
It's a good cities for singles, specially guys. For families, it's a bit more difficult given the limited choices available in terms of places to go with kids. Smoking is a big issue here and most restaurants don't separate smoking areas, so if you have children this is an issue, especially in the winter months when you can't sit outside. - Jun 3, 2011
I think all of the above. The only thing that's a bit difficult for kids is during summer and off-time, trying to find activites and programs to keep them busy. - Oct 30, 2009
Great for singles, couples and families with children. With the extremely low birth-rate most Bulgarians love children and treat them as royalty in most restaurants, malls, and shops. - Feb 9, 2008
