I found nothing impressive. You can drop in, see it and then out. If you miss it do not be too sorry.

The church is situated between the Presidency and Sheraton Hotel so don't miss it by passing around. It is worth the visit as there you can contemplate the Byzantine art of frescoes

Dates back to the 4th century and well preserved. Ornate inside and really worth a visit. Roman ruins in the garden are quite fascinating, amazing to see in the middle of the communist style building around it.

Supposedly the oldest building in Sofia. Open to visitors, just be aware that you won't be able to enter the sanctuary during services.
