It's one of the best choices if you come to the city and have some time to spare on shopping malls beside your touring program.
What I like about this place is that it's relatively close to the centre and my home unlike most of the other malls in the city.
Positives: easily accessible by walking distance from the centre. That is approx. 30 minutes walking distance from St. Alexander Nevski cathedral. If you don't want to walk, take the No.9 bus from the Sofia University bus stop. Another option is to walk from Orlov most (Eagle's bridge) along Tsar Ivan Asen II street - a really pleasant street away from the major tourist attractions, but with a charming spirit.
Another plus is the big variety of stores regarding quality, prices, types, etc. The closest mall to my usual city walks which has Peek & Cloppenburg.
A drawback for the newcomer is the somewhat puzzling floors inside. Due to the uneven level of the land on which the mall was built, one part of the mall is built on a higher ground so when you enter from one side, you turn up at 0 floor, on the other side - on 1st floor or something like that.
Be careful what kind of taxis you choose at the front taxi parking. From the mall to the city centre (e.g. to St. Alexander Nevski church) as of 2014 prices you shouldn't be charged more than 5 BGN (2.5 EUR) at average. Prices may vary, of course, but at the moment the average charge per km is approx. 0.80 BGN (0.40 EUR) during the day.
Another thing to note - there's no cinema at the mall.
