If you love history check out the Amphitheater of Serdica which hosts Roman ruins which were excavated while building Hotel Serdica. Close to the Presidency building and other attractions. This amphitheater was one of the biggest in Eastern Europe. Worth taking a look.

This ancient Roman is in a modern hotel. When the hotel was under construction, the ruins were discovered, but the hotel went forward anyway. Definitely a shame that the full site wasn't preserved and available to see but an interesting place to see nonetheless.

First to Review

It was while excavating Sofia on the site of a new hotel that workers discovered one of the most amazing ruins, that of the Amphitheatre of Serdica. Historians had long believed it must have existed somewhere in the vicinity, and this was what they had been looking for! It's unique for a ruin, as it now lies in the basement of the hotel. Strategically lit, and with information boards to explain what you're looking at, it's a great example of how you can respect your history while still permitting urban development.

Fino al 2004, quando fu scoperto, nessuno immaginava che a Sofia ci fosse un anfiteatro romano.
Questa arena romana ha una peculiarità: ha vissuto tre vite. Prima infatti era un teatro, poi un anfiteatro e dopo la sua scoperta è stato integratoall'interno del design di un hotel.
Ma l'anfiteatro è di dominio pubblico non privato: l'hotel ha progettato una galleria per cui i visitatori possono vederlo anche dalla strada.
