This cathedral is definitely worth a visit, and a few clicks of the camera. Inside the church is beautifully decorated.

Any major city has a good number of impressive churches. Sofia has fewer than most. But this cathedral is well worth a visit. Surround by houses, it's huge gold dome really stands out. Inside is a rare glimpse of Bulgaria's past.

A beautiful orthodox cathedral with magnificent gold plated domes, very attractive. Lighting a wax candle is a must.

Visit one of the most remarkable cathedrals of Bulgaria, unique architecture and history!
Alexander Levski Cathedral was build by rusian architect Pomerancev as a liberation memorial and voluntary donations!
