Much less impressive in person, at least the interior. Rude woman inside says "no photo please" and mumbles that this is said outside. True enough, though I missed the nonstandard placement.
Tacky modern add-ons. Hard to see the original frescos. One is reminded to buy things in a place too holy for photos without flash.

A marvelous , and historic church from the 4th century. You can spot the two distinct layers of frescoes in the ceilings, with one layer over the top of the other.

“St. George” Rotunda Church is the oldest architectural monument in Sofia and the only building in good repair, intact to the roof, dated as far back as the Roman Empire. Its construction coincides with a moment of a remarkable flourishing of Serdika as one of the largest and most considerable Roman towns on the Balkan Peninsula.

Definitely worth a look. In the middle of Government buildings, but just walk through to the inner courtyard where the oldest church in Sofia is situated.

It's amazing that such old building was preserved so nicely and that is was discovered by sheer accident. Must see in when in Sofia.
