Sofia

By bus from Skopje to Sofia did take about 5 hours and about 17 Euro. 

The place I stayed last time, Hostel Mostel was unfortunately full, so I took the Nightingale Hostel and Guesthouse. 

Visited this time the Alexander Newski Kathedrale, one of the biggest in Europe,  and the Sweta Sofia Church one of the oldest churches in Europe, several times rebuilt. 

From Sofia I took the bus to Vidin, unfortunately it was Sunday and walked over the bridge and had to stay then overnight in Calafat, Romania, a pleasant small town but not much to do.

For this route there is 1 train per day leaving Sofia at 7:25am to Vidin, connecting there to a train to Craiova, Romania, if you miss this train you can go by bus to Vidin, from there you take a taxi, walk or hitchhike to the bridge, then walk 3km to the border gate and an other 3km to the town of Calafat. There is a train at 5pm to Craiova but you get then stuck there, on Sundays the last bus to Craiova leaves at 2pm, a bit later on weekdays. To Turnu Severin the last bus is at 8 am, buses leave from Calafat from Boulevard Tudor Vladimirescu. I did find there a pension at Strada Trajan  next to Boulevard Tudor Vladimirescu the main street of Calafat for 70 Lei.
