  • Many delicatessen, coffee, sandwiches, clothing and non Food.. Fun to go inside! You have two floors. Downstairs is the mainly delicacies and top clothing and jewelry and I think still perfumery.

  • Nice centrally located market place, but lacking big assortment of goods. You can find fresh foods and some souvenirs for tourists. Fast food available on 2nd floor. Also prices are a bit higher than usual.
  • Back in 1911 when the Halles opened for public there was an ice machine making ice for delivery to shops and people. Now modernized it is quite impressive too with small shops on two stories and a beautiful centerpiece horloge on the stairs to the second floor.
  • You can find very good food here as there are many different specialized stores inside.
  • Top rendes-vous point of all arab scum in Sofia.
  • Pulno s bejanci. Ne hodete tam.
