  • Clean and cozy. Been here many times and it does leave an impression. Things keep changing and having something new makes a difference
  • A lot of booths. Souvenirs, fast food, cheese and meet and much more. It's located very close to the city center. There is 2 floors. If you are in the area it's a nice place to visit (weather protected).
  • This is a food market place on the European model. A large building housing market stalls selling fruit, fresh and cooked meats, pizza, cheese, fruit and vegetables and a variety of other foodstuffs. We bought some meats, some bread and cheese and some strawberries and really enjoyed eating them in the sun in the park opposite. A great memory, actually.
  • Has various food shops. Nice place to hang out and photograph people too.
  • Has the best ice-cream in Sofia. On the ground level floor
