Edit info
The exterior is rather austere, once inside, however, you'll find stunning icons and murals. The church has a long and tragic history.

First to Review

The Sveta Nedelya church is an Eastern Orthodox church in the city centre at the end of Vitosha Boulevard. The interior is ornately decorated with gold, murals, religious icons and a stunning chandelier. Over the weekend there were several weddings taking place at the cathedral and was very busy but it was lovely to see the all the activity around the church.

Era la Catedral más importante de Sofía hasta la aparición de la de Alejandro Nevski. El acontecimiento más reciente que ha sucedido en este recinto fue un atentado a comienzos del siglo pasado contra un rey en el que murieron más de 100 personas. A este atentado sobrevivió el iconostasio dorado de gran belleza. Merece la pena entrar a observarlo.

En su arquitectura es muy parecida a la catedral de Alejandro Nevsy, con sus cúpulas verdes. Por dentro es una maravilla, muy bien conservada, con pinturas de épocas anteriores, enormes lamparas de cristal y un altar con componentes de oro. Esta iglesia se hizo famosa por ser el lugar del atentado al rey Boris III y su familia en 1925, que causó la muerte de más de 150 personas.
