  • The historical site of the Sofia University is a flashy, impressive, with spacious interiors, located near the Metro station, in a busy area and that I liked for movement of students who attend and the adjacent green areas. The mansion is massive and unmistakable, but the curiosity of tourists should go to figure that the University sofiota is dedicated: St Clement of Ohrid. Who was he? It was a Bulgarian Bishop lived between the ninth and the tenth century of our era, revered as a Saint by both the Catholic and the Orthodox Church; visitors to Macedonia will find which national patron; Finally, in Macedonia, Ohrid is one of the most fascinating destinations on the Balkan peninsula and there is a church dedicated to San Clemente,

  • 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 Outdated curricula, the weirdest admission criteria and procedures, professors who may have seen dinosaurs in person, students that couldn't care less about education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.
  • The biggest university in Bulgaria... One of the saddest places in the country. Torn from corruption scandals and massive debt for central heating.
  • The university looks stunning. Students are awesome and open-minded. Overall a great place to study at.
  • One of the better universities in Bulgaria but surely there is a lot to be worked on. The good thing is that they offer some courses no other university in Bulgaria offers.
  • Ubava arhitektura.
