This imposing church at the northern end of Vitosha Boulevard has been rebuilt after being almost completely destroyed in 1925. Communist extremists bombed the building during a funeral service in the incorrect belief that Tsar Boris III was inside. As a result, much of the interior of this former medieval church -- 1970s frescoes and a marble floor added in... More

Came across this whilst walking around the centre of Sophia, its a beautiful building both inside and out and is free to enter the impressive main chamber, well worth a visit if only to take some pictures.

One can't miss this church whilst walking through Sofia, and it's definitely a site that requires a brief stop off. It looks pleasant from the outside in the middle of just about the only group of trees inside, and there is an information plaque in the square to give some information about the building. Entry is free, but it's 5... More

Unfortunately this church is not on the top ten tourist attraction. Even In our walking Tour we were never told about this church . The word nedelja means sunday church , the interior like most churches are ornately painted with a big dome in the centre. If you have the spare time do visit . Very centrally located .

Central but not that easy to get too - a big traffic lane to cross, this church is different from the others I've seen in Bulgaria (at least 10): it has chairs inside. Unlike in catholic churches, they are not set symmetrically in front of the altar but only on one side, the other side having huge candles holders. The... More

The 10th Century Byzantine orthodox Church is one of the landmark of Sofia. The medieval church Sveta Nedelya suffered many destruction through the ages and been reconstructed again, and renovated again. Some says that the name means "Holy Sunday" Well the holy one surely worth a stop by.

This beautiful church at the Nothern end of boulevard Vitosha, centrally located near to other religious places like Sofia synagogue, Banya Bashi mosque very much impressive. Not only from outside, but inside also great. Worth a visit.

Very beautiful church in the centre of Sofia, if you take the Sofia tour you will also learn about the history of the church.
