  • The building is currently closed for renovation.The park around the bilduing is a favourite spot to meet friends, take a drink and watch the fontains during the summer evenings. 
  • .. .me it seems strange to holder that a Palace of culture has no interest but really just a huge building whose interior houses not any exhibition that catches my attention. There is lots of culture inside the many churches and art galleries in Sofia.

  • There used to be little shops and markets inside but those have been gone now for a few years and nothing has been replaced. The building is empty inside which is a little disappointing. The outside w...  more »

  • This is where all pedestrian walks around town start or end. Must see for all foreign visitors. Right in the middle of the city, it's a cultural center with a busy event schedule. It's main hall has a capacity of 3000 people. The park in front of the palace offers rows of benches, good for street talks, or a game of chess in the open. Bikers, skate boarders and even street artists are a common occurrence here. A subway station right under makes it easily accessible from anywhere. There is a list of night clubs situated in various places in the building, where comedians or musicians get a chance to become famous.
  • One of the landmarks of Sofia- the park in front of it is fully renovated and a lovely place to spend an afternoon at. There are some amazing works of art inside the building which are also worth seeing and since recently, there's a coffee shop/bar/restaurant which offers a great view over the city.
  • Fully renovated. Nice place for a walk to combine with city tour. On the top of the National Palace of Culture there is a cafe-restaurant Sky Plaza with phenomenal view. Must visit! One should use the A3 entrance of the NPC; there is a sign for Studio 5...right after it.
  • Recently renovated, the park is nicely lit at night. The fountains are nice too
  • A must see for tourists and after the renovation is now actually pretty refreshing for your Sunday walk in the park. Look for hidden gems like small monuments, the wall honoring the victims of Communism with the chapel next to it, the playground with an artificial waterfall and the bar beneath the crumbling monument.
