As a church, it's very basis, like a lot of other churches but still beautiful. The real reason to go here are the catacombs underneath the church, They date back to medieval times and the complex is surprisingly big, If you're into history at all...More

Beautiful church in Sofia. From the outside it doesn't look special at all but the inside is definitely worth a visit. You'll be surprised!

From the outside this looks like a very plain church that you probably wouldn't bother entering. It looks very modern, but Don't be deceived - even the exterior bricks are old. The interior is a usual Orthodox arrangement, but that is mot why you should...More
