The Rotunda was build on the 4th century BC, so it's the oldest temple in Sofia and it looks very impressive, even at night. It s beautiful inside as well.

Tour took us here and was really interesting to hear about the history of this place. Don’t miss the changing of guards on the outside of the courtyard too. Hidden gem in a busy city.

The most interesting detail about this church is its location: it's in the middle of a square, fully surrounded by big buildings, and completely hidden. The inside is also worth a visit
