“Good for a quick photo then some shopping”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Take a photo on the bench, then you should run around and do some shopping in the nearby outdoor market (not there every day, but usually there). I got some nice Russian sci-fi iterature and a record.

“Interesting and nice place for photoes!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

The Slaveikov Square is very interesting and well known place in Sofia. There is the popular open book stores and the statue in very nice for pictures or just to sit when you are alone and to watch the old buildings, people, birds.

Very good architectural idea - a reason for photographs and fun for kids. A good place to sit when you are alone :)

“Natural.”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Placed in a square, that is known as a place to buy books , this statue seems to overlook the commerce and its positioning makes it feel like father and son are commenting on what the public is buying.

It’s a popular place to make pictures but, honestly, almost every life-size sculpture has that magnetism.
