  • Dedicated to San Clemente, is the oldest college of Bulgaria, founded in 1888. Very nice and impressive building that hosts 16 faculties with more than 20,000 students. Located close to the Parliament building.

  • We have seen only from the outside. It's a great building, very scenic and impressive in size. Is located on the edge of the great Parliament square with a backdrop of the Cathedral. The whole thing is beautiful effect.

  • 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 Outdated curricula, the weirdest admission criteria and procedures, professors who may have seen dinosaurs in person, students that couldn't care less about education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.
