National Art Gallery - Review

This is Bulgaria’s most important collection of art. It begins right from the 4th century, with many religious icons, and continues on to the Age of Bulgarian Revival in the 18th and 19th centuries. There’s also a large contemporary and modern art collection of paintings, graphics, and sculptures. The masterpieces of some of Bulgaria’s greatest artists - Vladimir Dimitrov – Maystora (The Master), Zlatyu Boyadzhiev, Sirak Skitnik, Nikola Raynov – are some of the most popular items in the museum. Also check out the library, which has about 6500 issues on art.

National Art Gallery, Sofia Reviews

  • One of my favorite places in the city. Not only is the building beautifully preserved in the form of a gallery (this is the former royal palace) but the exhibitions are always worth the time. Rarely crowded and can be visited within about 1- 1 1/2 hours- not too big and tiring but of the highest quality.

  • A very rich exhibition of works, both classical and contemporary. Well kept, beautiful building, there is something to see even outside the art itself. Overall amazing experience that lends itself to repeat visits.

  • Great place. I love the exhibition. If you want to buy some souvenir you’ll love it.

  • Worth seeing, but not for the art.. The art collection here is extremely limited. Nice to see, but not necessarily worth the trip. What is worth the trip is the building itself. This is a former royal residence.

  • I would strongly reccommend to visit in case if you are visitng Bulgarian capital Sofia.
