This is one of the best known parks as well as being one of the oldest. It's a great place to have a nice walk. It's also easy to find in the centre of the city.

Borisova gradina is an amazing park. It is enormous and it is so green. The park has a section for kids with balloons and jumping trampolines. In addition, there are a lot of benches and alleys, People do a lot of sports there. For example, it is not uncommon to see people playing volleyball or hacky sack. You can even join them.

Large park with plenty of space to stroll and relax on a noce day. The "upper" (eastern) part is less crowded and good for jogging.

The park has a very complex history to itself but now it's a vibrating green heart in the very center of Sofia. And when it was first build - can you imagine! - it was in the periphery.

Just a small part of it is well-maintained and park-like, the one closest to the center, the rest is a forest that stretches deep into the city. The youth of Sofia loves to hangout there and it's a very cheerful during summer days but in the winter you can checkout the icerink at the very entrance - it's open even at night!

It's dog & child friendly.

Lovely park! Very popular in the sunny weekends. Except green nature it offers also some attractions like walking water ball or horse riding. There are also a lot children play grounds.
In the park there are a lot of coffee shops, which offers sandwiches, drinks and ice cream. The summer swimming pool complex and beach is also a nice place in the hot days
The park is a save place in the center of the city, near Levski stadium.
It can be easily reached by Metro, the station name is Orlov Most /Eagle bridge/.
Enjoy!

Prende il suo nome dallo Zar Boris III questo parco, unodei più antichi di Sofia.
La sua bellezza e varietà di piante è dovuta a tre giardinieri che in tempi diversi dettero ognuno un tocco personale: Daniel Neff, il primo e colui che progettò il parco aggiunse gli alberi, Joseph Frei, quasi 30 anni dopo introdusse i fiori e per ultimo Georgi Duhtev aggiunse centinaia di varietà di rose e creò persino un angoloin stile giapponese!
Chiamato Parco della Libertà durante gli anni della Repubblica Socialista, oggi il parco, che ha riconquistato il suo nome, è ancora il luogo perfetto per una lunga passeggiata nel pomeriggio dopo un giro di visite turistiche in città.
