Does anyone know if the office at Bucuresti  can book the Sofia to Istanbul sleeper? I’m not sure if this office has access to the Bulgarian booking system but it might have as there is the summer couchette coach to Istanbul. It also seems that the International Office in Sofia is now closed on Sunday and Monday!

They need access to the TURKish system.

Sof has recently be reported as being closed SUN, not MON.

All reports -except the very odd exception in hi-summer, always and consistently told that there is always ample space on the day dep.from either end.

Unfortunately this route can only be booked locally at the station in Sofia. You can view the timetable on the Bulgarian BDZ website. It is also available on the Turkish rail carrier's website

I’m quite sure Deutsche Bahn can also book it (ticket office or by phone). But then you need to collect the reservation in Germany or have it mailed to you.
