The park used to be a fantastic place and now we ca only see the remnants of its greatness. Build in 1981 it literally moved the center of Sofia from around what we today call Independence Sq to the area around Vitosha blvd. and the National Palace of Culture. The park was designed to combine relaxation/walks area with kids' playground and a special place for dogs owners (at the back of the Palace). Now most of it has been taken over by skaters, the playground is a mess, same as the "doggy" place. Around the Palace things are under renovation and one can never be sure what will the result be. The saddest moment in its contemporary history was July 2017 when the remnants of the monument "1300 years of Bulgaria" were removed. I still give it four stars. It serves people well, but it's a far cry from what a fantastic place it used to be in the `80.

A monsterous building. One of the landmarks in Sofia. Has a good park there for casual hanging out and short walks.

Great place to have a beer outside or just relax on the benches. It's very good in the summer - the whole city is here :)

It's nice historical place in the center. I can't wait to see is after they finish the reconstruction
Nice park in the centre, a lot of people during the hot summer and whole groups of people splashing water on each other under the vigilant eye of the local police.
