We went to the church and had plenty of good time in the outside garden, we wanted to get in but it was full so we couldn't. The location is in the downtown, good to pass by when in Sofia

Easily the most beautiful church in Sofia. Built for the purposes of the Russian emissary at the beginning of XX century, it still bears the spirit of a bygone age.

It's tiny, very central and, I think, a must-see. Because of its size it won't take long, but it's worth it. Beautiful outside and cool, calm and serene inside.

A beautiful church. The entrance is free, you have to pay only for taking photography (10 leva?). Near of the centre.

Being used to the west-European architecture of churches, this church was lovely to visit. It is painted on all walls and ceilings.
