As with most of Sofia's architecture this was beautiful as well. Very busy around this area and right by the only tourist info centre.

Impressive exteriors surrounded by gardens. Lovely colours on the outside of the buildings. Close to a metro and a Tourist Information Office that closes every weekend - crazy!
