Beautiful well maintained Synagogue.
Located in the center of Sofia, just behind Central Sofia Market Hall.
This is the largest Sephardic Synagogue in Europe.
Staff is very welcoming and actually the place was closed for a private concert, but they let me in and take an inside tour.

Thank Ohad I

While the place is certainly nice to look at, there really is no visitor program. Pay your entrance - enter Synagogue - have a look around and leave.

I loved looking around this building. You are allowed upstairs, and looking down into the main area is spectacular. I loved the colours used and the shapes of the ceiling. The people were very nice, but there is not a lot of information available.

Amazing mosaics, in this old traditional Synagogue makes your jaw drop at the time you step in. Make sure to respect the place by covering your head(men) and use discrete clothes.
