This exhibition venue has a very interesting socialist architecture. It's located at the end of Vitosha Boulevard. There's a really nice park with flowers in front of the building, as well as some cafes and shops. Great for photos.

NDK or the National palace of culture is a classic meet and hangout place both during the night and the day. There a lot young mother with kids, people reading on the benches, musician, and skaters doing dangerous stunts. It is very convenient due to its close location to Vitosha Street. The fountains are very beautiful and you should definitely take as many as possible photos.

Walking through this huge park / social space was the perfect thing to do after eating a heavy meal at Made in Home. It also helped that it was a nice sunny Saturday in Sofia. The park gets pretty busy, with families and children playing, old people sitting on the benches observing, and people generally enjoying the space.
The Palace of Culture itself is located at the end of the park, and is an interesting piece of architecture in its own right. You can definitely see that it was finished in the 1980s under the Communist Government in Bulgaria.

This huge building certainly isn’t the most picturesque in Sofia, in fact I think it’s a bit of an eyesore, but nevertheless it’s still an important stop on your tour around the city. It was built in 1981 to celebrate the 1300th anniversary of the Bulgarian state and is basically just a massive hexagonal chunk of concrete. Its primary use is as a concert hall, with several cafes and shops located on the ground level. The best bit about it is the picturesque park that leads up to it.

Questo palazzo viene spesso utilizzato per ospitare mostre d’arte, concerti e festival di varia natura. Dalle dimensioni generose e dalla pianta ottagonale, il palazzo della Cultura è stato inaugurato nel 1981 in occasione dei primi 1300 anni di storia della Bulgaria ed ha al suo interno 13 sale e qualche ristorante.
