The building looks very gothic and grand! This is centrally located and Bulgarians are proud of this university which is their center of learning.. Since most of the historical government buildings are located close by, visiting this place must be easy by foot!

I was drawn to Sofia University by the impressive facade of its main building...both imposing and inviting. But upon passing through its main portal, the initial attraction immediately diminished.

Sofia University is the first one in Bulgaria. It is quite impressive and beautiful outside as well as inside. It is situated in the centre of Sofia, next to the Parliament.No fee for entrance.If you can go to the top there is the skeleton of a big dinosaur.
