The area around this church wil make you understand how different religions can cohabit peacefully. In few squared metres we can find a hortodox church, a catholic church, a synagogue and a mosque. Plus the church itself is very nice. I enjoyed more the inside than the outside, very rich and in the typical hortodox style. Not to be missed!

This church is smaller than St. Alexander Nevski. Nevertheless, it has interesting artwork. You will enjoy seeing both the outside and the inside of this church.

Right in the center of town at the metro station. Worth stopping by for a visit. Church was bombed by a terrorist in 1925.

Rebuilt after an assasination attempt at the beginning of the 20th century, the inside of the church is richly decorated. Very popular for Sunday weddings (the name means St Sunday) visits are still possible during the wedding and you get to enjoy the richness of the music and the wedding costumes as well

Located at the bottom end of Vitosha Boulevard it is in a central square and certainly makes an impression as you make your way round from the Court of Justice. Well worth a visit and some love photo opportunities of the church and the square. A good starting point for your exploration of the 'must see' sights of the city.

Beautiful, full of history, centrally located and a Sofia favourite for Sunday weddings from Spring to Fall, the Sveta Nedelia Church is a MUST. It is my favourite church in town! What is also interesting is the square of the church (called Sveta Nedelia as well) and the view to the largest mosque in Sofia, which is only a few... More

St Nedelja Church is right in the centre of Sofia. It was built in 1863 on the site of a medieval church, which itself was built on the roman town of Serdica. St Nedelja (Sunday) church is a typical neo-Byzantine orthodox church with a squat dome. Inside the walls are covered in beautiful blue and gold frescos. Light pours in... More

This church is reminiscient of the Alexander Nevsky church with a beautiful exterior. I didn't see the inside. Visit around mid day for great photos from the square behind the church.
