  • University buildings-above all praise. The magnificence of the solid. And photographed uncomfortable: a noisy Highway, always zapolonennaja cars. And of course-the wires!

  • I went in this building today it is very large inside and has a great stone stair case with very nice chandelier  more »
  • Impressive facade facing two streets and boulevards (Vasil Levski and Tsarigradsko) very close to the Church of Alexander Nevski. It is worth the visit if only on the outside. Inside you can not see every day and in any case some parts may have restricted access.

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 Outdated curricula, the weirdest admission criteria and procedures, professors who may have seen dinosaurs in person, students that couldn't care less about education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