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

  • The gallery on the opposite side of the park was much cheaper to get in and had a proper exhibition as well. I'm sorry to say but this is not worth a visit. Was arelly good visit! :D

  • Well structured easy to navigate pathways and art distributed in an orderly and thoughtful way. A must see for every set fan and firmly recommended for all visitors of the city

  • 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.

  • Amazing three exhibitions for 2 Leva only on Thursdays. Love the ball room where you can take a rest!
