Very beautiful building to enjoy in one of the most vivid city park locations, especially when the weather is nice.

As an architectural buff, I was pleased to be introduced to this Neo-Classical beauty on the excellent Free Sofia Walking Tour. Its pinkish-red and white facade features six white pillars that support a pediment with a relief of Apollo and reclining muses. Towers that flank the pediment display chariots pulled by lions. We spent little time at this attraction, so... More

This really beautiful theater is set in a very relaxing area of town, surrounded by gardens full of flowers, a nice fountain, good musicians - a great place to visit, far from the tourist crowd.

With fantastic weather for an afternoon walk in town and feeling like a tourist in your own area - it is the best thing to share. With many benches to rest, old man playing chess and fountain creating non-disturbing sounds. Great to spend your time there.

There is a nice little park in front of the theater. We were nearly the only tourists there. All locals. The theater is named after the writer from Bulgaria Ivan Vasov. The interior is like from a hundred years ago in design and furnishings but obviously is newer. Couldn't get permission to take pics inside. Outside is a neoclassical design.

The theater is incredibly beautiful on the outside, worth going just to look at it, I believe that you need to buy tickets to a show to be able to go in though

As we walked around the central Sofia, we stumbled across the monumental building of National Theater, named after the Bulgarien writer, Ivan Vazov. It is located in Vasil Levski street, near the Cathedral of Saint Alexander Nevsky and Hagia Sofia Church. There is a nice park with fountains, that encircles this beautiful edifice. Looks great, with its neoclassical facade. We... More
