  • It is located at the end of a beautiful park. It can be reached by walking along the boulevard Vitosha. It is an events Center, coffee shops. A complement to the visit to Sofia.

  • Extensive building of some architectural research in a beautiful park with many fountains. Inside, it's a true often enough dark maze where you can spend a lot of time trying to find the place where we're going!

  • Nice building to wandering with beautiful Exposition. When you need to find a particular room is the very much searching because many doors are closed, and because the elevators are not always on the right floor. From the top floor you have a magnificent view of the city.

  • 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.
