Owner description: The National Museum of History has the most impressive collection of national treasures and is the largest museum in Bulgaria. Through more than 650,000 artifacts – Thracian gold and silver, pottery, icons, art & jewelry, mosaics – it tells the story of the European civilization from the dawn of times to the modernity. With focus on the 1300 years history of the Bulgarian state, the museum is a must-see attraction to visit while in Sofia. Closed on national holidays - 1 Jan, 24, 25 Dec.

The visit of the museum with its exceptional golden treasures could be combined with the Boyana church visit. Min 3 hourse are needed for both spots.

Close to the world-famous church of Boyana on another hilltop one can visit het NMH, located in an ex-communist building. An endless series of old (very old) objects can be seen here, dating back to all times. This should be the most interesting historical museum in town. Gold and jewelry, many icons, statues, crowns, you name it. A highlight in town.

Its huge exhibition halls were adequate for different groups of tourists. Its well ventilated with adequate museum pieces not seen in other museums. Worth a visit.
