Saint Sofia Church

It's costs about ten leva but it's beautifully done and offers a nice history of Sofia and a view of all of the mosaics and tombs.
The Temple (a simple red brick church) is considered one of the symbols of Sofia, dating back to the 6th and 7th century when it was the site of Serdica’s necropolis.
