“NATIONAL THEATRE SOFIA The National Theatre “Ivan Vazov” in Sofia is the largest and most influential theatre in Bulgaria and the small park in front is a favourite hang-out spot for Sofia residents and tourists alike. THE BUILDING Save Unlike similar buildings in many other European capitals, “The National” is brick-red in color, which makes it particularly photo-friendly. The building was completed in 1907 in the Classical architectural style typical of the times. It has been the permanent home to the National Theatre company ever since. The theatre is named after the Bulgarian literary patriarch, Ivan Vazov, but residents refer to it simply as “the National”. The theatre’s opening ceremony in 1907 did not go uneventful. Envisioned as a celebration for the masses, it turned political when angry university students booed the King upon arrival. In retribution, the King, and his government, closed down Sofia University for six months. THE AREA Save The small park in front of the National Theater is a favorite late-night hangout spot for the young crowds. In the warm summer months, this is a great place to stop by for a drink at one of the several open-air cafés. Save Backgammon players in front of the National Theatre During the day, the area turns into a chess and backgammon battlefield, attracting slightly older visitors. ”

“15 Best Things to Do in Sofia (Bulgaria) Bulgaria’s capital has a lot of stories to tell, and each historic attraction will give you a new perspective on Sofia’s complicated past. Take the churches here that have spent several centuries of their existence as mosques, the overbearing soviet architecture or the Roman history that is still being uncovered and blends with the modern city. Tip – Start your trip with a walking tour to get to know the city, there are several available: browse walking tours Many of the buildings you’ll see are from the Bulgarian Revival in the late-19th century, when the country reclaimed its independence from the Ottomans. And always to the southwest looms the monumental Vitosha Mountain. Here are the best things to do in Sofia: 1. St. Alexander Nevski Cathedral St. Alexander Nevski Cathedral Source: flickr St. Alexander Nevski Cathedral The scale of this building will blow you away. Inside St. Alexander Nevski has room for 10,000 people and it’s the second largest cathedral in the Balkan region. As with a great deal of Sofia’s grand architecture, the city’s cathedral dates to the 1880s. This was directly after the Ottomans were overthrown and the state of Bulgaria was re-established. It was originally dedicated to the Russian soldiers that lost their lives in the course of this liberation. When you’re inside, look up at ceiling of the main cupola, which has a mural of the Lord God Sabbath. The crypt here is open to visitors and has a big collection of icons. 2. St. George Rotunda St. George Rotunda Source: flickr St. George Rotunda The heart of ancient Serdica and the oldest building in modern Sofia, this red brick church was built all the way back in 300s. It’s a wonder that this building has survived unscathed for such an amount of time, and all around are interesting little details that hit home the great age of the site and civilisations that have passed though. Step inside to view the detailed medieval frescoes that had been painted over by the Ottomans when the church was converted to a mosque in the 1600s. These were only rediscovered and restored in the 1990s. Outside you can see the flagstones of a Roman street and other remnants of Ancient Serdica.

Vitosha Boulevard Vitosha Boulevard Source: flickr Vitosha Boulevard The fanciest street in the city, Vitosha Boulevard is where all the posh boutiques and fashion houses are clustered. If you’re not an upmarket shopper then you can just console yourself with those arresting views of Vitosha Mountain which is capped with a dusting of snow for much of the year and framed by the street’s tall buildings. It’s a thoroughly pleasant place to spend a couple of hours; the cafes along the pedestrian street have outdoor seating and in recent years the lampposts, benches and kiosks have been redesigned into an elegant art nouveau style, recalling the early years of the Bulgarian Revival. 4. St. Sofia Church St. Sofia Church Source: wikipedia St. Sofia Church It was this church that gave the city of Sofia its name in the 1300s during the Second Bulgarian Empire. This unassuming red brick building goes right back to Byzantine times and was founded in the 500s on top of the ancient city of Serdica’s necropolis, as well as an older church from a century before. When you visit you can see the remnants of this ancient church and the tombs that date back more than 1500 years. For two centuries after the Ottoman invasion this was a mosque, but was abandoned after one earthquake in the 1800s brought the minaret down and another killed the Imam’s two son’s.”

Galería de arte
“The National Art Gallery is situated in the former royal palace of Bulgaria. In the halls where once ministers and royalties took decisions, today you can make a historic run through the artworks of Bulgaria’s most prominent artists. Be sure to not miss the bright winter garden, dedicated to temporary photographic exhibitions. Behind the gallery/palace is a small and quiet park.”
