At the crypt of , a box with handwritten messages stands next to the tomb of the former Bishop Seraphim. Locals consider him a miracle worker and believe that he answers prayers and makes wishes come true. The church's white-and-green tiled exterior is topped with five small, golden domes. Inside, you'll find four icons on the iconostasis, modeled after the icons from Kiev's St. Vladimir cathedral. The builders and the artists who painted the interior walls also worked on the Alexander Nevski Cathedral. Built on the Russian Embassy's initiative between 1907 and 1914, the church served as а center for numerous Russian emigrants in Bulgaria.

One of the most interesting churches in Sofia. Relatively new, completed in 1914. The church is now in the diocese of the Moscow Patriarchate.
The most beautiful church in Sofia! The park behind it is also a great place to chill with friends during the hot summer dats, due to the gigantic trees making perfect shade. Also not so many people, so it is great spot to escape fr the mainstream crowd around during Friday's nights and weekends!
An exquisite small orthodox Church. With its golden onion shaped roofs, its stands out and well worth your time. It is not really in the Center and may be out of your way, but try to make some time for it.
Very beautiful church. It's small, but I would recommend visiting this on your way to the cathedral.
One of the must-see places of interest in Sofia. Take your time to stop by the church regardless of your confession.
