Beautiful church in the city center, along the golden street. Worth walking by to take a look.

The only "onion-shaped-dome" church in the capital. Beautiful on the outside. For more of the same but even more gold-plated onion domes visit the Russian church in Shipka near Kazanluk

The St. Nicholas Russian Church in Sofia is stunning with its golden domes and colourful roof tiles. It’s quite small inside but worth a visit to take in the gorgeous paintings and gold leaf art work. The church is free to enter and there is gift shop inside where you can purchase postcards and souvenirs.

Madrid

Esta iglesia es una monada, pequeña, discreta, perfectita en ella misma, con sus paredes blancas, tejado verde y cúpulas de oro. Por dentro, no pasa desapercibida. Tiene unos frescos que hoy en día mantiene sus vivos colores.

Se llama así, iglesia rusa de San Nicolas, porque fue construida en honor a los rusos que ayudaron en la liberación de Bulgaria del imperio Otomano. Y el zar que había en ese momento en Rusia era Zar Nicolás II.

Merece la pena entrar a verla, el acceso es gratuito y no se puede sacar fotos dentro.

Pequeña pero pintoresca iglesia ortodoxa, que fue construida por el gobierno ruso tras la victoria en Bulgaria frente a los otomanos. De hecho, su construcción se hizo sobre una antigua mezquita. Para destacar sus cinco cúpulas cubiertas de oro que junto a los techos color verde, dan una preciosa imagen. Por dentro hay que ver los murales.
