What a great spot for going for long walks on the grounds. And it's not half bad for theater, too, I hear! I didn't catch any of the programming while I was there - I think it's in Bulgarian anyway so I would have missed a lot. But definitely a sight to see on a trip to Sofia!

Located in the top centre of the town, near all landmarks. There is a park and fountain which makes this spot very preferable for walks in the summer.

A perfect example of balance between art and architecture is given by the national theater dedicated to Ivan Vazov. Built in 1907, the building perfectly matches the architectural style of the twentieth century: it has a large portico with 6 columns at the entrance and consists of 3 stages inside. Attending a show here is a great way to get into the atmosphere of the city.

Ivan Vasov fue un poeta y escritor búlgaro de los más reconocidos y queridos en el país - es por eso que este teatro lleva su nombre. Su fachada es de una belleza increíble, es de estilo neoclásico y predominan los colores rojo fuerte y blanco además de preciosos detalles en sus ornamentos.

Merece la pena acercarse a verlo por fuera. Por dentro solo es posible si se compra un ticket para alguna obra, cosa que podría ser divertido considerando que si la obra es en búlgaro no se va a entender nada. ;)

Teatro de arquitectura muy bonita, de estilo neoclasico, que solo visitamos por la parte exterior. Con un hermoso jardín que lo rodea, está en el camino desde el palacio presidencial a la catedral de Alejandro Nevsky. Recomiendo también darse una vuelta por la noche, cuando su fachada está totalmente iluminada.
