This 4th century church is in the courtyard of modern buildings. You will see the Roman ruins and the church. Its looks beautiful and worth a visit.

Still amazed I could walk in the excavated ruins and touch ancient columns. Love how modern buildings surround the ruin of a Christian church and ancient Roman grounds. Little gem.

I found nothing impressive. You can drop in, see it and then out. If you miss it do not be too sorry.

The church is situated between the Presidency and Sheraton Hotel so don't miss it by passing around. It is worth the visit as there you can contemplate the Byzantine art of frescoes

Dates back to the 4th century and well preserved. Ornate inside and really worth a visit. Roman ruins in the garden are quite fascinating, amazing to see in the middle of the communist style building around it.

Tucked in a square between the Presidency and a hotel this tiny 6th century church contains frescoes of the Nativity, the Evangelists and prophets. When we visited a christening was taking place, so it is still a working institution.

Supposedly the oldest building in Sofia. Open to visitors, just be aware that you won't be able to enter the sanctuary during services.
