  • The University is the most famous in Bulgaria and the great reception hall for the students is a bit reminiscent of a prestigious English University. The canteen is good. There are a lot of people at the age between 18 and 25 years old. The trendy Cafés and bars are not overpriced and is suitable for walking away.

  • In the tourist area of Sofia this building stands pelka its huge volume. Does not pass unnoticed, such is its monumental setting. Worth a visit if time allows. In my case (a group) was made much to run because there were a lot of things to see and the time scarce for such visits that appear in the program.

  • Sofia University definitely falls into the category "How is this still a thing?" for me. Outdated curricula, the weirdest admission criteria and procedures, professors who may have seen dinosaurs in person, students that couldn't care less about education but stay there because they really want that diploma - that's what you get when you enroll at Sofia University. More of a mental hospital than an academic institution.
  • One of the biggest and famous universities in Sofia. They have very well prepared teachers and good teaching plans.
  • beautiful building, good education
  • Amazing piece of architecture.
  • Wonderful historical building, must see interior!
