The Sofia City Hall opened Saturday two stations where hot tea will be distributed free of charge over the freezing cold that is in the forecast.
The stations will be opened between 9:30 am and 10:30 pm and are located near the "St. Nedelya" Church in downtown Sofia, and in the park adjacent to the National Palace of Culture, also in downtown Sofia.
Hot tea will be further delivered to the homeless soup kitchens.
The City Hall reports that many people have already stopped for a cup of hot tea and that the initiative will continue all winter long.
12 Bulgarian regions are under code yellow Saturday over extremely low temperatures, the National Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) has announced.
Code yellow means potentially dangerous weather, where the forecast is not for unusual meteorological events, but requires people to exercise caution.
