  • It's very close to Sedrica metro station and Deity All-Holy Sophia Monument. You may satisfy your daily needs and gift shopping. Also there is small bar and cafe.  more »

  • What a lovely market! You will find bakeries, lunch stands, drugstores and pharmacies. The prices are generally pretty good. The main floor is mostly eateries. Half of the top floor is a drugstore and bottom floor has just a few stores. It's fun to browse. The hard part is choosing from amongst all of the food stands. Everything looks delicious.
  • I love this market. Upstairs you can buy all your toiletries which have been made in Bulgaria. Downstairs you can eat whatever you fancy. I also bought the most fabulous amber bracelet.
  • Upper floor is half grocery store, half individual shops. Ground floor is all individual shops, including a bar and a rose oil place. Honestly, thought it would be bigger. Wasn't expecting it to compare to the big markets in Barcelona or London... but this felt extremely ordinary. I think it's more the fault of the hype/tour books as compared to anything else... but yeah. Some places like this, wandering, you can be lost inside for hours. This? I think it took ten minutes.
  • One of the tourist attractions in Sofia City centre which is also very popular among local people.you can find here a fresh food of good quality sold directly by the producers, you can take something freshly baked for you breakfast or you can just buy souvenir from Bulgaria.One of the emblematic old buildings in Sofia
  • Really nice building from the outside. Inside is a nice market like place with a bakery and a butchery and sorts. You can also get some nice coffee there.
