Situated on the corner of two busy streets (Opalchenska and Pirotska) and surrounded by a park, this is one of the more impresive modern era Bulgarian churches. Built around 1900, the overall impression is of a wealthy city church, well proportioned and a highly decorated interior.

From the outside, the ceramic frieze of stylised birds and vines that runs around the building just under the eaves is particularly attractive. The interior is dramatic, the walls and the vaults are painted and there is a central lantern tower. The pulpit and the screen are elaborately carved and the latter has some good quality icons.

A little bit away from the other tourist sites in the centre of Sofia, but definitely worth a visit. The nearest metro station is Opalchenska.
