Sofia from Kopitoto TV Tower
All of Sofia in one gigantic panorama! Enjoy this rare view from the platform of Sofia's publicly not accessible TV tower. The platform is ca. 100 m up the structure. The tower itself stands on a rock 750 m above the city. The distance to the city center is 10 km, so a clear day and low standing sun were crucial for this shot, which was planned and realized by Sofia's photographer George Palov and Michael von Aichberger, supported by Canon Bulgaria, who provided the very best of Canon gear: Canon EOS R5 and EF 4/600 L IS III.

Do you like to get even closer? Then you might appreciate this view: Sofia city center, taken with 1,200 mm.
