When you start preparing for your trip to Sofia, you will over and over again come across the Saint Alexander Nevsky Cathedral.
Located 10 minuts away from the hotel it is one of the main attractions in Sofia and the most important Orthodox church in Bulgaria, the seat of the country’s patriarch. Before you visit it, discover what makes it so special and how it came into being.
The building of the cathedral was connected to Bulgaria’s liberation from the rule of the Ottoman Empire in 1879. Since at that time Bulgarians didn’t have an army while the Russians had political interests in the region, the main part of the war was undertaken by the Russian army. After the end of the Russian-Turkish War of 1878-1879, the grateful Bulgarian people wanted to build a monument to all the brave men, Bulgarian and Russian, who fought and died for the liberation of the country.
