Russian Church, Sofia

The Church of St Nicholas (the Russian Church in Sofia) is a remarkable decorative art building. The crypt is housing the remains of Saint Archbishop Seraphim. It is believed that prayers asked in faith for health are answered.

Just like in a train compartment, each seat is numbered. Listening to bard Vysotsky, while tasting Russian delicacies & vodka, one does not feel like getting off the train…All places are usually fully booked, so plan in advance.
