This is a part of the know Square of Peace, where the Orthodox Church lives near the Catholic Church, the Mosque and the Sinagogue. This Church, it's not he most beautiful. But it has History in it, as it was teared down in attacks and disasters.

Nice church and important historic spot in Sofia. Comunist attack destroyed the church in 1925. Present one is built after that. It is a burial place of Serbian medieval king Stefan Milutin and a place of pilgrimage.

Visited with my wife and a religiuos (orthodox) couple during Easter. The place was packed to the rafters but it gave the church and the whole area a very unique atmosphere.

Lovely church that allowed photographs to be taken if you bought a permit. There was a service going on when we visited which was an added bonus.
