Britannica online, September 24, 2015 (Sofia, Bulgarian Sofiya, capital of Bulgaria; The Serdi (Sardi), a Thracian tribe, established a settlement in the region in the 8th century bce. This community was conquered soon after 29 bce by the Romans, who named it Serdica (Greek: Sardica); In 809 the Bulgarian khan Krum seized the town and incorporated it in the Bulgarian state; it was given the Slav name Sredets (Greek: Triaditsa). It was under Byzantine rule from 1018 until 1185, when the second Bulgarian Empire was established. Sofia fell to the Turks in 1382; the Ottoman governor of Rumelia took up residence there, and the town gradually acquired a distinctive Oriental appearance. It was liberated from Ottoman rule by Russian troops on January 4, 1878, and was designated the Bulgarian capital on April 3, 1879)
