Things to do in Sofia
See the famous Statue of St Sofia
Tour the beautiful capital city starting at the statue, a 24m bronze statue of the goddess protector of the city, erected atop a pedestal on the Sveta Nedelya Square.
Marvel at the Ancient St George Rotunda
The oldest building preserved in Sofia is the 4th-century St. George Rotunda. The ancient church is situated amid the remains of the ancient Roman town of Serdica. The magnificent dome is protected by UNESCO and the church functions at present as a museum.

The square in front of the church hosts a colourful street market selling souvenirs, antiques and bric-a-brac.
