A beautiful building to see while passing. It has no real interest for tourists but it's on the beautifully yellow-bricked boulevard next to the Aleksandar Nevsky Cathedral and National Parliament building.

Other than being a very attractive building the Academy of Sciences does not appear to have any attraction for tourists. It is located very near the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in the nicest part of central Sofia.

This is just a lovely building, centrally located near the cathedral. While entering the building was not allowed, we managed to enjoy its lovely looks and beautiful features from the outside.

The building of the BAS Central Administration (http://www.cu.bas.bg/) was constructed in the beginning of 20th century. Ever since there were several extensions to the main building. Amongst the halls of the BAS headquarters is the Great Hall used extensively for various scientific and cultural events....More

You can find it in the center of the city, near Parliament and just opposite hotel Radison. Building is old , but is not something really special.
