Bulgaria Pollution?

I’m considering travel to Bulgaria and have read that Sophia is the most polluted European capital. Has anyone traveled there and experienced this?

I spent several days in Sofia, enjoyed it very much, and at least at that time, never sensed that it was particularly polluted. Air seemed fine. I loved Bulgaria!

I've been to Sofia in September, never felt that it was any different to any other major city.

I've been to Sofia a couple of times and didnt notice it being any worse than Rome. Of course that's not a complement. Very interesting city, do some research before you go and you will find it fascinating. I dont think tourists spend enough time in Sofia. But after a couple of nights get out and see the rest of the country. Fascinating and beautiful country.
