Swingin 'Hall opens in 1995 and over the years has become a favorite place for party seekers, coziness and good music. In the beginning, the club has only one stage and it has concerts of almost all already established jazz, rock and pop musicians in Bulgaria, as well as dozens of world-famous artists. Today the scenes are two. Every evening is a theme and, certainly, fun: jazz, rock, pop, ethno jazz, DJ parties, funk, and so on...

This bar is one of the coolest locations in Sofia, locals love hanging out there. This is one of those places where there is something for everybody. It doesn't matter if you want to have tea in the morning, grab a bite for lunch, have a glass of wine while listening to great music or just enjoy a great cocktail in the evening During summer locals usually sit in the garden. They serve really delicious sandwiches and salads. This is not a budget bar but it's the place where quality meets service. On busy nights they don't accept reservations so try to get there before 9.30 if you want to find a nice place to sit.

Large and popular live music club and dance bar in the city centre with great sounds and a great weekly line-up of local and international bands, playing a variety of genre but mainly alternative rock. Urban underground interior, on two levels with 3 bars and a maximum capacity of 700. Live concerts on Thursdays and Saturdays and usually themed party nights with DJ sets on a Friday night - although this can vary according to programme. A very pleasant note is the fact that the club strictly adheres to the 'no smoking' policy!

Until August 1990 this was the seat of the Central Committee of the Communist Party. In the summer of 1990 it was set on fire by crowds protesting against communist rule.Based on the designs of P. Zlatev, it was built by a co-op of architects which included Tsolov and the Soviet architect Blochin. Completed in 1953, it marks the top end of an area known as the Largo, a major showpiece of postwar socialist Sofia. Look up and you will notice something distinctly missing. The red star! This was removed after the collapse of the communist party. Now it is exhibited at the recently opened Museum of Socialist Art.

A large outdoor sculpture park has everything from the giant statue of Lenin that once stood in the centre of the city to the red star that topped the Socialist party headquarters. Smaller pieces reveal a gentler side to the Socialist ideals. The gallery inside has some excellent examples of 20th century modern art as well as the Socialist Realism genre we know from the period. Somewhat off the beaten track, visitors will have to get the metro to Joliot Curie or G.M,Dimitrov stations and walk 300 or 400 metres down the hill.

Built in 1891, across the Perlovska River, according to a project by Kolar & Proshek, the stone bridge flanked by four bronze eagles atop four granite columns was seen to mark the entrance to the city and the start of a new era. The chosen site marked the place where Sofianites welcomed back the revolutionaries in 1878, and the eagles were seen as a symbol of freedom. Nowadays, Eagles' Bridge marks the entrance to Borissova Gradina park and is one of the points at which one can enter the Sofia University metro station.

Situated just behind the Hilton hotel at the beginning of the Yuzhen Park, this museum has a fascinating, if somewhat poorly displayed, collection of giant crystals and gemstones from around the world. In recent years attention has been turned to attracting more children to the museum and there are special exhibitions aimed at children, such as the life-sized dinosaur replicas. The venue is also used for temporary art exhibits as well as musical recitals, the resonance from the crystals adding to the quality of the musical performance.

Well worth a visit to see how a once delapidated building can once again become a thriving centre of trade. The former food market, built in 1909, was one of the earliest of this type in the country. Fully renovated in the late 1990s, the main focus of the shops inside is once again food, with stalls selling fresh fish and special dietary foods, as well as a variety of other shops and cafes.The ornate facade - which incorporates Byzantine and medieval Bulgarian architectural elements - has alternating layers of stone and brick, large window niches and a high central arch above that is the city coat of arms topped by a small clock tower.

The Holy Synod is a ruling body of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church. The beautiful ornate building of the Holy Synod was built in 1908 by Petko Momchilov and J Milanov. Red and gold Majolica tiled friezes wrap the building, the central mosaic portrait depicts three members of the Holy Synod. Sadly much of original sculptural elements were destroyed during the Second World War. This building is the residence of the Bulgarian Patriarch and is not open to the public.

The slogan on the facade above the entrance "Obedinenieto Pravi Silata", loosely translated means 'United we are strong', which seems wishful for any parliament. This is the scene of regular public protests and back in 1997 the building was actually stormed and damaged, leading to the eventual downfall of the ruling (Socialist) party.Built in three stages between 1884 - 1928, it was built by Bulgarian Architect, Konstantin Ivanovich who had been living and working in Vienna.

Towering above the intersection of Maria Louisa Blvd and Todor Alexandrov Blvd. in the commercial heart of the city, Sophia was erected in 2001 - not without some controversy - replacing Lenin’s monument, which was removed from the same spot at the time of the democratic changes. Sophia was considered too erotic and pagan to be referred to as St. Sophia. Eight metres in height, the copper and bronze statue by the sculptor Georgi Chapkanov, stands on a 16 metre high pedestal. Adorned with the symbols of power (crown), fame (wreath) and wisdom (owl), the crown is also a reference to the Goddess of Fate – Tjuhe, inspired by the old emblem of Sofia dating back to 1900.

From time to time talk turns to the fate of this tall monument, crowned with an 8-metre high sculpture and bronze figurative compositions around the base dedicated to the Soviet troops who entered Bulgaria at the end of WWII. Usually someone calling themselves a defender of democracy calls for it to be pulled down or proposes a referendum on its fate and then it is all forgotten as the Russian Embassy responds that Bulgaria is not at liberty to do so. For a while it was covered in graffiti but it seems that it has found its niche in the city landscape and will stay overlooking the skateboard and cycling area in the park.

This charming round red brick church dates back to the 4th century, although it did not become a church till the 6th century. It is Sofia's oldest preserved building. Having undergone major restoration work, it was reopened to the public in 1998 for the first time in 70 years. Three layers of frescoes can still be seen, the oldest dating back to the 10th century illustrating the development of monumental painting through to the 14th century. Nowadays it often hosts small art exhibitions. Services are held daily at 8.00; 17.00 and 21.00. The excellent website has a section called 'chants' where you can listen to recordings of Old Church Slavonic chants.

Built at the end of the 19th century, this church is the direct successor of several smaller churches from medieval times and is said to lie directly above the crossroads of ancient Serdica. In 1925 it was largely destroyed in a bomb blast assassination attempt on Tsar Boris III in which over 200 people were killed, although the intended victim was spared. The beautifully preserved wood carved iconostasis dates back to 1865; the murals were added as late as 1976.

The name of Lions' Bridge comes from the four bronze sculptures of lions, its most recognizable feature. All metal elements of the bridge were produced by the Austrian company of Rudolph Philipp Waagner, and electric lights were installed in the early 1900s. The entire construction of the bridge cost 260,000 golden lev. The Prošek family also designed and built the similar but eagle-themed Eagles' Bridge marking the city centre's eastern border in 1891. One of the bronze lions is depicted on the reverse of the Bulgarian 20 lev banknote, issued in 1999 and 2007.[2] Since 2012 the area around Lions' Bridge is served by the Lavov most station of Sofia Metro line 2.[3]

The idea for the construction of this true contemporary castle comes from the former Bulgarian first-lady Lyudmila Zhivkova. She was a daughter of the communist politician and leader of the former People’s Republic of Bulgaria Todor Zhivkov. The project was worked out by a team of Bulgarian and foreign architects, led by Alexander Barov. The landscaping of Bulgaria Square in front of the National Palace of Culture was made by another team of architects and landscape engineers, led by Atanas Agura.

Since 1872 Originally arranged in the last years of the Ottoman rule it was radically transformed immediately after the Liberation in 1878 . The alley network was reorganised, new plants were added, as well as a low wooden fence, a coffeehouse and a kiosk for musicians. The garden was initially named the Alexander II Garden in honour of Russian tsar who initiated the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78, which led to the Liberation of Bulgaria.Today the City Garden is not only a popular retreat for the residents of the capital, but also a favoured place for amateur chess players, who can be regularly seen in the small garden in front of the National Theatre.

Artur Gallery is situated on “Journalist” square on the ground floor of an old renovated building. The main focus of the gallery is to present contemporary Bulgarian art. It works with both well-known artists and young authors who are looking for a chance to show their talent. The goal of “Artur” in a long term perspective is to become a small art center combining different fields: literature, music and acting. Yet the main function would still be presenting painters from different generations with different styles. The gallery is designed to show and make the valuable contemporary art more popular.
