More about the Landmarks in Sofia, Bulgaria

The Bulgarian capital Sofia is surrounded by mountains and is a great advantage for mountaineers, who can go to Vitosha, Lyulin, and the Balkan Range. In the center, as well as in several other areas like Knyazhevo and Gorna Banya, there are mineral springs. The mineral baths in the central area of Sofia were constructed in the beginning of the 20th century, where old Turkish baths previously stood. The statue showing the city’s patron Saint Sophia rises in the central part of Sofia. There, too, tourists and citizens can see remains of Roman time buildings and structures.

The walking Sofia city tour is the fastest way and see the sights and monuments which are more than 200. Orthodox churches and chapels, some of them built in ancient times, the 4th century. The largest one is the Saint Alexander Nevski memorial church. The Sofia Synagogue is among the largest and most exquisite synagogues in Europe. The Sofia mosque is another must-visit sight, comprising a bath using the warm mineral spring nearby.

The Saint George rotunda lies between the Sheraton hotel and the Presidential complex, and was constructed in the time of Constantine the Great. The Sveta Nedelya church is a medieval building, destroyed several times but afterwards reconstructed, and the murals date from the period 1971-1973. The Saint Sophia church was built on the site where several older churches stood in different periods but were destroyed by Goth and Hun invaders. In the 2nd century, there was a Roman theater as the earliest known building, where now Saint Sophia rises. The Boyana church is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Constructed in the Middle Ages, in the Boyana area, at the foot of Vitosha, it first served as a chapel for the local ruler.
