An impressive Russian Church worth visiting. Conveniently located one the centre of the city. Old tapestries, small inside. Should be visited.

Interesting. Being in the city on a Sunday, decided it was fitting to attend the local church and observe local traditions.

Inside, down in the crypt, there are relics of a saint. They say, that if you wrote down a wish on a piece of paper, left it with the relics, it'd come true.

This church provides good picture taking opportunities with the beautiful gardens outside. Close to all other main sights in Sofia.

It was still in the hard socialist regime when I first glimpsed this wonderful church, it looks it just come out of a fairy tale, in the interior you can see a remarkable collection of Icons, highly recommended.
