Amazing 1000 year old building. Entry is cheap and there are still paintings on the walls from when it was first constructed. English translations of exhibits are also available.
Beautiful cathedral, today a museum. The interior and exterior are simply stunning. Make sure to soak in all the details inside and check out the amazing icon mosaic made of Easter eggs!
Calm and nice place, where you can relax and enjoy the silence. Also there are one of the most beautiful view of the city from the Bell tower.
Must visit - the Sofia cathedral has some of the largest collection of orthodox frescoes from XI-XII century - incredible monument of art. Best is to take a tour, as there are so many frescoes and mosaics that require explanation to fully understand them
