Maps of Bulgaria
Here are some useful maps if you are coming here:
Interactive Bulgaria Maps
Of course you already know about Google Maps. Check some other options:
BGMaps - in many ways BGMaps is even better than Google Maps. The maps are clear and have all the streets on them, easy search, search routes, and lots of practical info on the map - hospitals, banks, theatres, metro stations etc.
Bulmaps offer simpler but very fast interactive maps. For big cities like Sofia there are also important objects like hotels, stations, rentacar etc marked on the map too.
BG360 is a Google Maps mashup with 360° views of many places.
