Do take time to find this church, I was amazed how such a gem, hidden away in a courtyard surrounded by buildings was not crowded with tourists. The place is quiet, you can walk around the remains of the previous establishments, I think I even...More

Definetely worth a visit, it a lovely church close to the presidential palace, hidden from the street, but really nice. Once inside you can sit and see icons all around the church. I highly recommend to pop in.

Our 'free Sophia tour' guide made this church interesting and worth a visit- without her information there was little to be impressed by. Very small church with no notable features- a shame one section is being used as make do storage!

A petit little church at the foot of the Sheraton Hotel. I would recommend it if you are in the area.

Easy to find in city centre despite being surrounded by buildings. Church is free to enter, with old frescoes on the walls. Though only 10x10m wide inside, so you can see everything in two minutes.

Wonderful small church just steps away from the offices of the Bulgarian president in Sofia. I would recommend to visit- it is a small place, away from the usual tourist places.
