  • The university! Four stars because there are some old pricks there who should take a long vacation. The architecture is great, interior is not that well preserved considering it is our pride...
  • The well - known university of Sofia. The so called alma-mater to so many people. Cherished and loved through the ages, it is situated in the very centre of the city.
  • Best bulgarian university! Very old and a very beatiful building!
  • Historical university in Sofia, very good architecture.
  • Iconic building and the oldest higher education institution in Bulgaria.
