“Closed when visited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Unfortunately the church was closed when we were walking around, however, this small church might be overlooked in a tiny place next to a subway station surrounded by buildings. Should be good inside as the exterior looked quite old-fashioned and it got good reviews.

“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

One might even miss this small crypt in the center of the city, as there are quite a lot big and impressive buildings in the area. But if you go down the steps and enter this caveous dark chapel you will be impressed by its mysterious atmosphere. Ther are many frescos & icons, quite a few in greek language, and there's an icon of Jesus that is so gothic and frightening!!!
As everywhere in Sofia there's a souvenir selling point in the crypt but...what can we do?
