The construction of the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral started in 1882[2] (having been planned since 19 February, 1879), when the foundation stone was laid, but most of it was built between 1904 and 1912.[1] Saint Alexander Nevsky was a Russian prince. The cathedral was created in honour to the Russian soldiers who died during the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878, as a result of which Bulgaria was liberated from Ottoman rule. The St. Alexander Nevski Cathedral is a symbol of Sofia.

I wouldn't usually recommend a hotel lobby bar, but his is very upscale and has the best handcrafted cocktails in Sofia. Not only are the drinks creative and original, they even make all of their own mixing syrups. You can also have lunch or dinner at Captain Cook's or Marionette while you are there!
