We attended a Nightwish concert here and it was really great, there's plenty of space, the stage was positioned perfectly. Toilets are clean, it's easy to find, everything was great. 45 minutes to get a beer wasn't, but I'm sure the crowd had something to do with it.

It is very good place for sport events and they happened often. All kinds of them. The seats are comfortable, it's clean and well organized. On the other side it isn't suitable for concerts. This building is not build for music. The acoustic is awful.

We were at the center of the hall with good view and sound. Easy access and quick security check. The road access is hard and traffic is massive.

We wanted to rent this hall for a large conference. Management is very unprofessional. It was difficult to have a tour before we start to discuss other details. They did not answer emails and telephones.... We moved rather to other city

It is great that we have this place. We can finally visit big gigs or sports shows not only in summer but also in winter. One big issue- the parking is too small. It is always an adventure to find a parking place around. And if you are late for the gig this can be a disaster.

The place is huge and has some rather modern architecture. This is one of the biggest arenas for shows and concerts in whole of Sofia. Built in 2011, the place was always on my must-visit places when I planned my vacation trip to Sofia. The arena has a seating capacity of 1600 , though the parking place is considerably less....

It said to be able to hold 12, 000 people but the parking lot can only hold 600 plus cars though which is a big disadvantage when each person would bring a car to an even happening in the arena. Lady gaga also did a concert here once and I loved it but I don’t think the arena would be... More

It's a great big sized venue, where you can visit some of the biggest concerts and shows in Sofia. P.S. Exit a little bit early when you visit, because it gets crowded and you might have trouble finding a taxi
