Set in a small city centre park, this building is crammed with detail. There's a really chilled atmosphere too with street vendors (but no hussle), chess players etc.

The building in and of itself is beautiful. The park and the public lands on the outside is great for a walk or to relax and people watch.

It's always good to go to the theater. To relax and ti gwt away from reality. Ivan Vazov is the best theater in Sofia. Full of culture and great architecture. It's also a great place to go hang with friends.

My Bulgarian took me here and he pointed out to me that in one of the angels up on top, there is one with a golden ball. Take a closer look and you will find it!

National Theater has splendid view at night in the winter. There are beautiful Christmas decorations in front and a lot of lights in the evening. Near you could visit the park and Christmas bazaar and enjoy a glas of mulled wine...

Overlooking a smart park with cafes, seats, water features, kids play areas. Right in the heart of Sofia. Next to hotels, museums and government offices. It's an imposing building, in and out, and outside is lit at night. Spectacularly.

Hi Lukas. T To what I heard and remember during my Sofia tourist tour in 2016, there are no English plays. It's all in Bulgarian. Sorry to disappoint you. Still, if it's not freezing weather during your Sofia visit, I... More
