We arrived late in Sofia, just enough time to see some of the beautiful buildings before the sun came down. We first came across this, the Monument to the Soviet Army. The monument is located on Tsar Osvoboditel Boulevard, near Orlov Most and the Sofia University.

We then headed towards the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, something I had been planning to visit for some time.

P1060883

This was built in the early 20th century in memory of the 200,000 Russian, Ukrainian, Belorussian and Bulgarian soldiers, who died in the Russo-Turkish War of 1877–1878. It is one of the largest Eastern Orthodox cathedrals in the world. We then left continuing on our walking tour.

Before turning on to a side street where our hotel was. I noticed while walking back, somewhere that interested me. Somewhere where I thought I would like to live. Maybe one day !
