About the school and City

Established in 2009, IH Sofia is a fast growing school, with 3 main centres, based in the capital of Bulgaria. We have excellent team spirit and work closely with our students, parents, corporate clients and partner schools. Watch a video of Sofia here

Sofia is a city with a variety of events, international concerts, restaurants, bars (Bulgarian food is delicious!), shopping streets and a vibrant nightlife. Prices are very reasonable, meaning a great night out for around 40 Euros, including a 3-course meal, drinks, and entrance to clubs and bars. With the attractive salary and low prices, many teachers have an active social life and travel, while saving up to 400 Euros each month. You can see more about Sofia here

For those who love the outdoors, skiing and hiking are only 20 minutes from the Centre and mountain ranges and beaches within a couple of hours. If you'd like to go further afield then we border Greece, Turkey, Romania and Serbia. Highly recommended are trips to Istanbul and Dracula's castle.
