When you go to Sofia, you have to see the cathedral. The outside is very beautiful and because it is such a big building, it's a bit overwhelming. But I was a bit dissapointed with the inside. It is not very detailled and so kill.

Absolutely remarkable please in the center of our capital. Built to remember us that we are free European citizens and we aren't slaves to the ottoman' empire anymore, as well as the fact that Russians are our friends and one of the most valuable relatives irrespective of the political life...

I visited Alexander Nevski Cathedral this summer, again. It is located in downtown Sofia and it is accessible by subway, busses, etc. There are many museums, galleries, and other interesting landmarks in close proximity to the cathedral. One could spend the entire day walking around this part of the city. The cathedral is the largest in Sofia and features beautiful stain glass windows, frescos, amazing wood carving and hand painted icons. If you are lucky to be there when the choir sings, you are in for a treat. The angelic voices echo in the dome of the cathedral and provide a truly spiritual experience.

It is located nearly to the center of the city but not close to strong center. The place is probably the most popular in Sofia, and this is one of the biggest orthodox church on the Balkan, after St. Sava in Belgrade.

The cathedral is really pretty from the outside, and it’s ofcourse the main attraction in Sofia. The inside, on the other hand, was really dark and quite disappointing. But of course you need to go here!

We visited the main cathedral a couple of times and were lucky to be there when the choir was rehearsing, the acoustics are great. Also, do not miss the iconography on display in the lower level.
