“Social place of Sofia”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

The building looks gorgeous and of course the scene attracts it's customers with the best plays in the town with the best actors, but what I actually love more is the social place in front of the theater in the evenings. All youngsters go there, drink beer, talk, laugh and share some inspiration ...If you want to see the inteligent and young bulgarians - go there in the evenings when the weather is good :)

“National Theather”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

Favourite place to hang out!An amazing building with beautiful ornaments, surrounded by a nice garden/little park where you can enjoy a a drink almost every season of the year. Most of the young people go there or use this as a meeting spot. Famous place that is in the very center of the city.

“Where cultures meet”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

The National Theater is one of the buildings that helped shape a budding cultural identity during the beginning of 20th century. It is not only the oldest, but also one of the best theaters, in every sense of the word. The building is very beautiful and was renovated not long ago (although, we must say, they went a bit far with the gilded genitals on one cherub). It features a square with fountains, drinking water and a garden with benches in front of it, and this is where the life gets going in the warm months of the year. Due to all the aforesaid characteristics, Sofia youth find it a perfect place to hang out, drink beer, play music, games, dance, laugh and enjoy life. One of the focal spots for late afternoon to early morning activities, when the weather permits.
