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.

If you are in Sofia you need to enter the St. Nedelja Church and light a candle. Based on the location this is most likely the most popular chuch in the city. You will see many weddings on weekends. It a beatiful chuch.

Ornate Orthodox Church, functional so you will see people coming in for prayer not sight-seeing. No English information available which was a little frustrating as the church has historical significance.

This is an interesting example of a Christian Orthodox church with typical Byzantine architecture. The cathedral was the place of a terrorist attack carried out in 1925 by members of the Bulgarian Communist party. While there are some signs forbidding photography, they are quite hidden behind the main doors and as I didn't see in the beginning them took several... More

I've given this place four stars because it's worth a stop if you're around that area of the city. Beautiful interior, nice and dark inside, well preserved, and a lot of gold/gold paint. Other than that, there's not a huge lot too see. If your itinerary doesn't go near the place and you've been to a similar styled Eastern European... More

You can't miss this church if you are sightseeing around Sofia, it's located exactly at the exit/entrance of Metro Line 1, station Serdika. Just a warning! There are a fair amount of gypsies in the area, so be aware of who approaches you, especially if they offer to read your future or sell you something. Look out for your belongings... More

Was able to enter this church....but that is all I can tell you! When I was there, there was some sort of event going on....lots of priests convening for some sort of vote. The television crews were on the outside interviewing when they came out, the locals were all crowding in with flowers....I wish I knew what was going on!... More

It is a unique place, standing in the hart of the city. Doesn't look like a typical European chapel. Nice work of wood and stone.

We liked the abundance of old icons, depicting almost All the major Saints of the Orthodox Church . Ecclesiastical music in the background added to this solemn atmosphere
