Sidewalk Level Stores

Walking along the streets in downtown Sofia you can't help but notice an interesting phenomenon. Many of the stores selling cigarettes and drinks are located slightly below ground level, with their lone window just above the sidewalk. To make purchases, you have to bend down and give your request to the shopkeeper. I guess a report that you bought something in Sofia "on the street" should be taken quite literally.


  1. In Bulgarian it's appropriately called "Kleck(Клек)-shop" /Crouch-shop/ :D
