Indoor market with local products and a few eating places. We went there for trying famous banitsa (Bulgarian cheese pie), boza (a fermented wheat drink) and ayran (yogurt-based beverage) but ended up with a soar stomach- don’t mix them all.

It's very close to Sedrica metro station and Deity All-Holy Sophia Monument. You may satisfy your daily needs and gift shopping. Also there is small bar and cafe.
