NB: We strongly recommend you to issue an ISIC SU card. If you have an ISIC card issued by your home university, you may use it for discounts, but it will not be valid for a student discount card of the public transportation in Sofia, the railways network or access to the library, dormitories and the other university buildings.


The ESN card is a membership card for the Erasmus Student Network (ESN). It is not an ID, nor can it substitute a student card. The ESN card provides access to discounts available to all members of the whole network. These discounts include reduced prices for events and services, organized by ESN on local, national and international level, such as transportation, accommodation, trainings and courses, foods and drinks, etc.

Price: 20 BGN
