Great place for walks and talks with friends. Definitely boutique square. The monument of father and son Slaveikov is gorgeous. Miss the book market there. Love that place.

Lovely place for years. Open air books market. Old books available too. You can buy for one euro or less nice books. Most of the market is moved to the small park a front hotel Rila.

I lived in a penthouse apartment overlooking Slaveikov Square for 3.5 years and absolutely loved it.
