Would someone with physical disabilities have difficulties living in this city?

If you wanted to walk around downtown, it would require a lot of effort. Stairs, broken stones, etc. - May 17, 2016

Yes. Please take Sofia off of your list you are a disabled person. I have a double stroller and never got to push it on the street as there are no proper sidewalks. (I can only push it at the Malls) One exception is that all Metro stations have handicap elevator! - Aug 16, 2014
Many! Sidewalks do not exist in most of the city, and when they do exist they tend to be in terrible shape. Infrastructure in general is awful and for people with disabilities it would be extremely difficult or even impossible to live here. - Jun 3, 2011
Walking around town may be a little difficult with the cobblestone roads, potholes, navigating a wheelchair would be a little hard. - Oct 30, 2009
Many older buildings in Central Sofia do not have elevators, some streets are in need of repair, and people tend to park on the sidewalks making it difficult for people with disabilities. - Feb 9, 2008
