This is actually a building of the Archive of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. It's good look at, especially as it's situated in the very centre, just a few steps from Alexander Nevsky.

A beautiful building to see while passing. It has no real interest for tourists but it's on the beautifully yellow-bricked boulevard next to the Aleksandar Nevsky Cathedral and National Parliament building.

Other than being a very attractive building the Academy of Sciences does not appear to have any attraction for tourists. It is located very near the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in the nicest part of central Sofia.
