Sofia – a city of potentials, a city in a discontinuum
The article presents spatial development dilemmas of the capital city of Bulgaria, Sofia. In the urban network of mainly south-eastern Europe, Sofia is searching for new distinction, a quest comparable to other cities in united Europe. The historical fact is that Sofia developed from crisis to crisis, in difficult historical circumstances and by inherent solving of pending present problems. The need for adequate spatial development strategy, which could sustain and condition permanently stabile development intentions, is emphasised.
