Take a tour of National Theatre of Sofia in Bulgaria – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
The National Theatre of Sofia, also known by many as 'Ivan Vazov National Theatre' is an exceptional Bulgarian cultural landmark.
This, the oldest and the most distinguished theater in Bulgaria, was first opened in 1907.
The primary facade of the building is adorned with works of beautiful Apollo sculpted with her muses.
Built in Neo-classical style architecture, with beautiful reliefs, gold plated details, and embellishments, this building is truly awe-inspiring.
Having faced considerable damage during a bombing raid in World War Two, the theatre was almost immediately reconstructed in 1945, a testament to its importance to Bulgaria.
Bronze statues amid the reflecting fountain in front of the building only add to the charm and charisma of this illustrious theater.
