The Church of Saint George is the oldest standing building in Sofia dating back to the 4th century and is surrounded by the ancient city ruins and more modern structures. The church is now a museum however there was a religious ceremony taking place during my visit which we were able to view.

Anche nota come Rotonda di San Giorgio per la sua particolare forma, è questa la Chiesa più antica di Sofia. Essa si trova in una zona caratterizzata da un alto ritrovamento archeologico; a tal proposito si rende noto che qui sono state rinvenute le reliquie di St. Ivan Rilski, patrono bulgaro, e che gli affreschi alle pareti sono stratificati in 5 livelli.

Se trata de una iglesia con un gran valor histórico dado que se trata del edificio más antiguo en pie de la ciudad Sofía datando del siglo VI. No es fácil de encontrarla dado que se encuentra en el interior de otro edificio. En comparación con este parece pequeñita, pero no lo es tanto. Es redonda, y es por eso que se la conoce como Rotonda, de ladrillos vistos y adentro aún conserva sus frescos originales. Es bien curiosa por su ubicación e historia, aunque también porque en su larga vida ha sido también mausoleo y mezquita.

Esta pequeña iglesia es difícil de ver si no se tienen referencias, ya que se encuentra emplazada en el patio interno de un gran edificio que alberga un hotel y el Ministerio de Educación y Ciencia. La visita vale la pena ya que es el edificio histórico mas antiguo de Sofia, construidos por los romanos en el siglo IV, Por dentro aun guarda pinturas en sus techos.
