There is not a big display, but the changing of the guards happens every hour, so it is easy to catch. And there are some great sites/ruins to check out in the surrounding area.

First to Review

Just around the corner from St. George Church and across the street from the Archaeological Museum the Presidential offices of Sofia are guarded by soldiers dressed in unique 19th century red and white uniforms. Be sure to be around on the hour between 8am and 8pm so you can watch the changing of the guard ceremony.

Davanti all’imponente Palazzo della Repubblica ogni ora si può assistere al cambio della guardia. Le divise blu sono delle guardie esterne, mentre le divise rosse sono indossate dalle guardie che stanno all’interno del palazzo. Il cambio in sé non è niente di eccezionale, tuttavia si tratta di un qualcosa di insolito e pur sempre piacevole.

Los cambios de guardias son algo divertido de observar, que atrae tanto a grandes como a niños. La manera de caminar, firmes, coordinados. La seriedad en sus expresiones. La vestimenta típica. En este caso se celebra cada una hora de 8 a 8 (durante el día) enfrente del palacio presidencial.

A cada hora en punto, desde las ocho de la mañana hasta las ocho de la noche, en la entrada principal del palacio de la presidencia, tiene lugar el cambio de guardia de los soldados que custodian el palacio. Van vestidos con uniformes representativos del siglo XIX, con los colores rojo y blanco, portando sus fusiles y al mismo paso. Sin dudas un espectáculo que hay que ver en Sofia.
