This is an impressive building, however the first thing that catches the eye are the two huge lions guarding the steps. This is also the meeting place for the free Sofia walking tour, which was awesome, (see review, 365 Association Sofia Tours).

We were visiting Sofia and entered this building as our map showed it to be the National Musuem! Wrong. We realised that it wasn't when we were asked for our passports and had our bags passed through an x-ray machine by armed security guards. Once...More

This court house is eye catching and grand, but not exciting – there's not a lot to do once you're there! You can join a free Sofia Tour here, starting at 10am, 11am and 6pm, but apart from that, the building offers nothing more than...More

Guarded by two big lions, this building is right next to Vitosha boulevard and a good meeting/starting point for your walk through the center. You are not allowed to go inside so there is nothing much else to see then the facade, the stairs and...More
