I was lucky and dropped into see this church while a baptism was occurring. An American was marrying a Bulgarian the next day and was being baptized today. Beautiful church and ceremony! .

It is just another church, which is not very special from inside. Exterior is quite nice. You can visit it and take a short rest there.
