An attractive and distinctive facade as a first view makes here a very worthwhile visit. Nestled in a pleasant greenery surrounded by trees the horizontal patterns of light and dark are impressive.

Said to be the second largest church in Sofia, this was apparent when we moved inside. A fine space opens up, all the way to the altar area.

A gorgeous iconastasis is to be gazed at, splendid carved ornateness. Similar beauty adorns the pulpit.

Throughout is embellished with marvellous frescoes, including the inside of arches and the glorious domes.

A very special experience as so very different to other types of churches with wonderful gold covered wall hangings, paintings and ornaments adorned every corner of this magnificent structure.

Situated in a leafy park (a good place for a rest from sightseeing, or you could stop off at one of the nearby cafes/restaurants). On the corner of two wide streets: Opalchenska and Pirotska, and a short walk from the shopping Mall of Sofia. The nearest Metro is Opalchenska, trams run by it, or you can easily walk from the centre of Sofia.
This is a large church with a highly decorated interior, in very good repair, and definitely worth a visit. It was nearly empty when we visited, so we were able to sit and appreciate the quiet.
Outside there is an unusual tiled frieze (birds and grapevines) that runs around the building under the eaves. Inside has beautifully carved screens with icons. A dramatic space - very ornate, with beautifully painted arches and domes.

Sofia is highly Christian based, so there are many beautiful churches almost every block.st. Nikolai is not just another one but the unusual pattern unlike the others that has similar appearances ..this one to me is more of a modern age look and beautifully and designed. Lovely garden adds to the beauty of this really outstanding church.
