This church, built in 1528, was originally a mosque with an ominous name – the Black Mosque – thus called for it’s minarets which were tiled in black marble. Later, it was used as an arms depot, and then as a prison. Today, it’s just another Sofia’s many pretty churches, with a nice exterior garden. It’s main highlight is the a gilded iconostasis with icons painted by Anton Mitov. A former Bulgarian prime minister, Petko Stoichev Karavelov, is buried in these grounds along with his wife. The street outside the church is one of the liveliest. There are a lot of benches in the park, and vendors from whom you can buy snacks.
