“Old moments”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

The visit was a journey back in time to these moments of faith and devotion. The church looks and feels old with its well kept glory and icons.

Ancient temple turned into church surrounded by a modern building, there are also some ruins in front and location serves as excellent photo location

“A place to admire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

The church stands next to the Residence of President. This is a good example of Roman Cathoric still can be seen in Orthodox Bulgaria. It seems there is a restroation effort going on. Can't wait to see how it will be.

“A lovely little church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

This is a small church behind Sheraton hotel. It is an impressive building and if you go early in the morning you can attend the service too. What I didn't like was the fact that in the church there was a small souvenir "market". Attending the service while other tourists buy souvenirs is not exactly what I would call spiritual...

“Interesting Old Orthodox Church in the center of Sofia”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

We were fortunate that our Bulgarian tour guide directed us to St. George hidden in the Courtyard of the Sheraton Hotel. It is an interesting small orthodox church built circa 400 AD. It provides an insight into the long history of the Bulgarian people and Bulgarian Christianity. It is also rather amazing that it is till used for church services.
