You may be thinking, â€œWhere in the world is Sofia Airport?â€ For what itâ€™s worth, it is a nice name for an airport, isnâ€™t it? Anyway, Sofia Airport is the major airport in the country of Bulgaria in Europe. If you do not know your geography, just check it out on Google Earth.
So why am I writing about this airport which may be unknown to a lot of people? Simply because it is a place that is quite friendly to cigar lovers. Novinite reports:
Sofia Airport has become the third place in the capital, where cigar lovers are to enjoy the quality and variety of products offered by the luxury La Casa del Habano boutiques.
Bulgaria education minister Daniel Vulchev, who is known for his passion for nice cigars was one of the guests at Tuesday’s official opening of the cigar shop.
“The opening of La Casa del Habano contributes to the airport’s comfort and style and gives the opportunity to people to get in touch with the Cuban culture,” Habanos S.A. commercial vice president Manuel Garcia said at the event.
Habanos is one of the main partners of Bulgarian company Kaliman Caribe, which owns and manages the chain of luxurious smoke boutiques Premium and La Casa Del Habano.
Despite the distance of Bulgaria to Cuba, it is apparent that the reach of the culture (cigars mainly!) is far. More than the cigars, however, Bulgaria is fast becoming a popular destination for tourists from all over Europe. If you find yourself looking for a European vacation, then you might want to drop by Bulgaria and enjoy a smoke while you are at the airport.
