We came across this church quite by chance as it was not detailed on the tourist map of attractions by the hotel. We all agreed that this was indeed one of the most beautiful churches we had seen in Sofia. The interior of this church is absolutely stunning.
Without doubt, visit this church you will not be disappointed!

The church was built in 1528 as a mosque. In 1903 it became a church. There is a very nice lively garden in front of it.

I came across this church by chance, while looking for something else. It was a pleasant discovery. Unlike the Alexander Nevski church, the walls and roof are still bright (not blackened by the candle smoke) and the paintings can be seen clearly. Best of all - you are not prohibited from taking pictures inside, unlike other churches. So you can show your friends and family how beautiful Bulgarian Orthodox churches are from the inside too!

It is beautiful architecture from the green roof to the bricks out side but the most worths to mention is the inside interior. I was lucky to be there at the right time for their service Sunday morning. It was very moving. You feel like you were throwing back to another country in the period of around 100 years ago. Make sure you make time for this church.

Due to the ongoing construction works in the center of Sofia, this place is hard to reach. The best way to visit the church is if you enter from Parensov Str. and the Ministry o Interior.

The most important architect of the Ottoman Empire was the great architect Mimar Sinan built as a mosque (Kara Mosque) during the reign of Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent 600 years ago. After the reign of the Ottoman Empire, the region was transformed into a church.

The Sveti Sedmochislenitsi park, which has the same name as the church, is alive all day and night and is a nice resting place for locals.

It is about 10 minutes' walk away, in the middle of 'Vesil Levski Metro Station' and 'Sofia University Metro Station' for those going by public transport

This is a churched devoted to St Cyril and Methodius patrons of Slavs. It is a The buildings was constructed by during the Ottoman Empire by the Suleiman the Magnificent and it is used for a mosque. After the end of the Ottoman occupation the army use it for warehouse. However, at the begging of the 20th century they turned after a vast restoration to an Orthodox Church . The paintings inside are really impressive as well as the architecture of the building itself. It is located in the city centre very close to the main pedestrian market street . A place worth visit if you are into history , architecture and religious history.
