The Central Market Hall, deserves its name because it is in the center of Sofia, near the mosque, the old mineral baths (closed) and not far from the Sheraton Hotel. It is located in a very beautiful and well preserved old building and the inside is as nice as the outside, well maintained, clean and with some nice features, a cafe in the middle, a fountain and a pretty flight of stairs at the back of the building. There you will find vegetables, fruits, wines stalls, baker, ice cream place and patisseries. One stall sells delicious olives, another one very good ready food if you want to sample some local cuisine. There are also shops selling leather goods (very nice gloves, belts and bags) and a new big shop at the mezzanine level for beauty products (all sorts of make up) and toiletries (soap, shampoos...). The Tsentralni Halite is well worth a visit, even for just ten minutes on the way to another attraction but I would recommend a little caution because there is a very mixed crowd around and it is one of the very few places in Sofia where I didn't feel safe in day time for a moment or two. Too many people are coming really too close on the pretext of looking at whatever you are looking at and I didn't feel entirely comfortable at that time, just be a little aware and careful.
