“The place to buy books”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

If you can read bulgarian and you are looking for special books, that is the place to be. You can find nearly everything here. The sellers are very helpful. If you need shoes just stroll the various shops nearby (i recommend Tendenz) nad eating opposite of The Carrefour city shop is also greta value for money. Try the Zucchini with Yoghurt or the shrimps or the typical Shopska salad,.

Great variety of shops and small restaurants. Skip the KFC though it is way overpriced compared to the other restaurants.

You can find every book in Bulgarian there. You just tell the title to the vendours and they immediately give you the book. They also make nice recommendations.
