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.
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.
And we noticed another Russian influenced church, this is the St Nicholas the Miracle-Maker church. Its even prettier inside, as I took a peek !
Heading on we came across the Statue Of Sofia,
Her face looks upon the Batemberg square, where The presidency and the Government houses are situated.
We then came across the main shopping district, Vitosha Boulevard.
And walked all the way down towards The National Palace of Culture. Where we found some interesting sights. And lots of renovation work.
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 !
