The building it's very nice, and has a different architecture from what you may see in Sofia. Also the whole area it is very very nice.

One of the most beautiful buildings in Sofia and definitely worth a stop. The only thing is that you cannot take a tour of the inside, the only way to get in is if you buy a ticket for a show and all of the shows are in Bulgarian.

Overlooking a smart park with cafes, seats, water features, kids play areas. Right in the heart of Sofia. Next to hotels, museums and government offices. It's an imposing building, in and out, and outside is lit at night. Spectacularly.

I haven't been inside but this building looks great outside. I've been told it was rebuild after a big fire. The park in front is wonderful. There are few cafes but if you need to use a toilet go to the hotel nearby.

Very impressive! The Theater has an amazing architecture and its facade is stunning! It reminded me of Greek Architecture. The square, which is in front of the Theater, is ideal for a walk. Worth a visit.. ✿

I could spend a whole afternoon in this park and in front of this theatre. It's really lovely. Be sure to read up on Ivan Vazovs history because it's quite interesting

The Ivan Vazov National Theater and its park is a nice place to visit. Besides its beauty and uplight colors in the evening it is a place to relax for the young of Sofia. Loads of activity on the stairs of the theater all evening.

The theatre is a splendid building which I confess I have been inside. The front has a lovely park with a fountain area and plenty of bar come cafés, to site and chill.
