Sofia Public Mineral Baths - Review
It’s very strange that Sofia, once renowned for it’s public baths, has let that particular heritage slide so badly. The baths had been in use since the 17th century, but structural concerns led to the bath being closed in the 20th century. After some renovation work though, the place is now being used as a hall for temporary exhibitions. Even if the exhibitions themselves don’t interest you, it’s worth going in to the enchanting interior. There’s talk of converting the baths into a museum, but the project is really dragging its feet. The building is a pretty neo-Byzantine construct. Outside, there is a lovely fountain and park, where tourist line up to fill their bottles with free mineral water.

Sofia Public Mineral Baths, Sofia Reviews
The museum is absolutely brilliant! It is fully renovated by it's historical and architectural interior and exterior. The museum have a great gallery spaces and very prepared curators. People who work there are very well prepared for helping you and giving you advices of what you can do and explore there. It is a great museum to see in Sofia, Bulgaria. I recommend this place for tourists and people who are trying to get the knowledge about history of Sofia as a capital of Bulgaria.
We really only went to use the toilets because of the cheap student prices, they were nice. However we did walk around afterwards. The museum is interesting and kind of empty with nothing major there. Worth a visit if you like regional Bulgarian culture..
This museum is very nice and beautiful. The museum has different things of different times. When you are in the museum, you feel in that lifetime. Do you
The exposition is not bad, however, I was highly disappointed by price politic and cashier service. First, I paid 8lv, though in price list it was stated 6lv. Second, only after I paid a ticket, I was told that photo is by charge. However, there is no mention about photo in the price list neither any sign that is explains photo policy in the museum. I want to be clear - ticket price and photo take price are not high. However, I expect from museum to make it clear and transparent to a visitor!
Awesome museum. They have a great exhibition on the classical history of Sofia, and an awesome exhibition on Byzantine religious art. The staff is friendly as well, though because you're not allowed to take pictures (you have to pay extra) they sometimes follow you around and you feel slightly like a criminal.
