“Big:)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

It is an impressive buidling in communist style. Nothing to do in it, unless there is a concert/show going on. The square in front is good for walks. Also on the side starts Vitosha street - one of the shopping streets in Sofia

“Poor management,artifact from the communist past”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Where to begin with-the last renovation is probably before I was born,the toilets are paid,the interior is dark and ugly,the ticket system is so outdated,that all the information about the shows are handwritten.

“Sad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Hideous, communist architecture. When you live here, you end up there from time to time for different things. If visiting, you will see it in passing and that is enough.

“needs restoration, but serves well”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

The building has been in a huge need for complete restoration (inner and outer) for a long time. Otherwise it serves as a much needed and useful spot for concerts, congresses and various fairs and exhibitions throughout the whole year.

“You will hardly miss it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

The biggest congress center in Bulgaria. Do not pay attention to the condition of the building and the square in front of it.
