Church of St Sofia, Sofia

Interesting
The Church of St Sofia is one of the country's oldest sanctuaries. Built on the foundations of a previous church dating from 363, it was turned into a mosque in the 16C, destroyed by two earthquakes and finally restored in 1999. Today the interior of this immense three-nave church impresses by its height and the beauty of its brick vaulting.
