Religious or not this is a must see if you are in town. The exterior of the cathedral is absolutely breathtaking. The scale is impressive. Once inside the attention to detail on the everything is admirable. The cathedral is the meeting point for many events in Sofia. It is in the heart of the city, so getting here is easy. There are many other sites to see within a few blocks and there are many many places to have a drink or food.

When you're in Sofia, you start to feel the influence of the Middle East. It really seems to have its own look and feel. This church, I think, is a good example of that. It's not what you'd expect of a Western European cathedral, and it's not like a mosque. It's Bulgarian and unique. Very interesting architecture.

For all its boasts of a grandiose cathedral, the interior is pretty small... I've seen bigger! Crowds were pretty intense. Huge lines to get up close amd personal with the icons. They also supposedly charge a photography fee but it wasnt exactly enforced. Nice stained glass and cool exterior structure. Based on all the reviews, i was expecting more religious art but it seemed pretty void of that inside.

the flagship place to visit in Sofia. The interesting fact is that you need to pay 10 lev to take a picture with your own phone. It is kind of a way for donation I guess.
