One of the best places to get quality pictures of your time in Sofia is at the National Theater. It has the beauty of old Eastern Europe.
This was absolutely breath taking at night and so was the atmosphere around it. It's also surrounded by some of the most beautiful (and expensive) late 19th/20th century residential buildings in Sofia. Definitely worth a visit in the day too.
Highly recommended a visit. The building is in excellent shape from outside - clean and all details are restored to pristine condition. I did not go inside - unfortunately I did not organize tickets for a show in advance. But the surrounding area is also very nice and the fountains are working.
I went twice during my last visit to Sofia. the theatre is well located, well maintained and not too big. you maybe seated at the balcony or down in the stalls, you have a perfect view of what is happening on stage. Compared to lots of theatres in Europe, the seats are very affordable: around 10€ for a nice seat.... More
Wonderful buliding. In the area nearby you can see couple of the most beautiful residential buldings in Sofia, dated the begining of 20th century or even the late 19th. The park in front of the thetater is also very nice place. Althought in the night there are lot of young people there drinking beer and playing music, it is safe.... More

Well, the walking tour guide said that the... More
This is my favourite building here in Sofia. Architecture is very nice and can catch a play/musical if you have an inkling to experience Bulgarian theatre. The area immediately surrounding has several cafes/bars, as well as a newly renovated fountain and garden. All around quite nice!
I suppose there are two parts to talk about: the theater itself is well made before the post-Soviet architecture "Stalin cakes" found elsewhere (such as NDK). Acoustics - perfect. Attention to detail on the walls, seats - perfect. You'd have as good a performance here as anywhere, with perhaps "Hall of Bulgaria" being the only better acoustic hall in Bulgaria.... More
This theater is amazing. From the architecture to the artwork this is a top notch national theater. The best aspect of this theater is the facade the faces the central park in front of the old palace. Very beautiful and a place to sit with friends and have some great wine at one of the side cafes. Beautiful building, tons... More
