European Students for Liberty is thrilled to announce our Regional Conference in Sofia following last year’s enthusiastic success. We’re excited to present to both seasoned and fledgling libertarians the opportunity to attend lectures on economics, philosophy, and liberty by some of the world’s leading libertarian thinkers. This will be not only an opportunity for learning and self-improvement, but also a great chance to network, build friendships across national boundaries, and to pick up the skills necessary to make sure the message of liberty is delivered as eloquently and strongly as possible to your audience at home.

Previous attendees can offer you passionate accounts of how absolutely thrilling it is to mingle with some of the brightest young minds from across Europe. There is nothing quite as intellectually powerful as a group of libertarians who piece together their decentralized knowledge to create a conclusive case against government control, interventionism, and favoritism. After the conference, attendees are invited to attend the social at the Stix Bar and Billiards to relax and bond. The city of Sofia itself is also rich in culture and history, and participants are encouraged to explore as much as their free time allows. They can find museums and churches scattered around Sofia, with the Alexander Nevsky cathedral having a central position in the downtown area.
