What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

We live a little outside the city and up, and it's good quality here. In the city itself, I think there are some days where it's a bit hazy, but it's not really a concern here. - May 17, 2016
In the winter it can get bad/unhealthy if you are in the city. Most embassy personnel live on the mountain so the air is better there. - Dec 18, 2014
OK away from downtown. - Nov 23, 2014
Doable. Not bad. - Aug 16, 2014
Air quality in Sofia is pretty bad, there are many older cars and buses that contribute to the air quality. In the summer, with the heavy rains, it tends to improve. There is also a lot of dust in general. - Jun 3, 2011
