All reviews russian orthodox church onion domes beautiful inside no photography russian style stunning building toompea hill old town worth a visit upper town icons interior photos priest scaffolding incense worship
I liked this cathedral although the staff inside were a little strict. When we visited a lot of the church was having renovations made to it, but we still got some good pictures. Sadly there wasn't much information about the history of the church, which...More
This is Russian era and well preserved. The church is amazing with wonderful stained glass and carved wood alters. There was a lot of brass instead of gold which is different for such a grand cathedral. Would recommend a visit as it is free admission
We happened by Nevsky Cathedral during a service, so it was a bit crowded inside, as the service participants were in a separate, roped-off area and the tourist/sight-seeings were near the main entrance. We didn't stay long because of the crowd, but it was very...More
Very pretty on the outside. Typical orthodox church on the inside. No photos allowed inside. If you've never been to an orthodox church and are walking by, you could stop in. Great view to take a photo is from the Kiek in de Kok.
Called to see this cathedral on a Sunday and it was extremely busy, don't know if it was a special day for the church or not. All women had covered their heads. Lots of offerings there. Church is beautiful inside and a reverent air in...More

Hi! My friend and I arrive in Sofia at 9:20AM on Oct 12 and are there till early morning Oct 16th. Very short trip unfortunately, but want to make the best of it. My priorities are to see Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Sofia,Rila and Boyana ( thinking a day tour for this), Plovdiv and Bachkovo. I had considered Belogradchik as well, but that only works if I do 3 single day tours, one on each day ( 13, 14, 15th) with sightseeing in Sofia on 12th when we arrive). However, the day tours to...More

I think the first one is good, spending a bit more time in and overnighting in Plovdiv is worth it, its a fun town. Just make sure you are in the center - either the old town or the new town's pedestrian center, there are a lot of hotels outside of that area that are not convenient for seeing things. I assume when you say Rila you mean Rila Monestary, and by Boyana you mean the Church, not the suburb. Both UNESCO sites and worth seeing for sure, especially Rila. Are you taking a tour of...More

Does anyone know, please? The only site I can find gives a visit outline but doesn't actually say if it's open during the week for visitors. Thanks.
