Somewhat hidden from street view behind the Sheraton Hotel. Very small brick church is in excellent condition especially considering its age. Murals inside are from the 10th-14th century.

A little gem in a built up area. I love this church. It is a delight to visit and even it's location is impressive. I tend to access from hotel grand Balkan 's downstairs toilets! You can also access it from the other side

Part of ancient city Serdica, built in 4th century by the Romans, now hidden behind Sheraton hotel and Presidency building. A breathtaking ancient complex.

Considered to be the oldest building in Sofia dating to the 4th century. It sits almost hidden in a courtyard. It sits among ruins of an ancient city. It's in remarkably good condition for a structure of its age.

From the outside it looks like a very lovely Church. Very interesting. We could not enter as we were not wearing the appropriate clothing. Men cannot wear shorts and singlets and women cannot wear dresses without sleeves.

An interesting visit to this ancient ruin that was actually inside the Palance ground. Visitors were allowed with no admission charges. Worth a visit. Sofia is full of Roman and ancient ruins.

Set in a quiet area behind the presidency and in the ruins of a Roman street, it was built by the Romans in the 4th century, used as a mosque by the Ottomans and then restored in the 20th century.

It's in a square surrounded by high end establishments. The church is very beautiful and worth a visit.

A hidden gem in the center of Sofia, this early Roman round church is a must-see (and it only takes a few minutes to see it as it is small).

Do take time to find this church, I was amazed how such a gem, hidden away in a courtyard surrounded by buildings was not crowded with tourists. The place is quiet, you can walk around the remains of the previous establishments, I think I even...More
