On our running tours in Sofia, you’ll see all of the main attractions such as Alexander Nevski cathedral, the Parliament, Sofia University and the National Theatre. The East and West gates of the ancient Roman city and the Amphitheatre hark back to the Roman times. See 13th-century frescoes in Boyana Church, or St. George Rotunda Church, Sofia’s oldest building from the 4th century. Few cities have such a diverse historical heritage.
And there’s so much more. The 19th century Royal Palace, now the National Gallery of Art has beautiful gardens and is an absolute must-see. To see Sofia’s modern diversity, shrines to the four main religions are within a hundred meters of each other.
