Covered Market Hall built in 1911 in Neo-Renaissance style with elements of Neo-Byzantine as well as Neo-Baroque architecture. Just a main market-place inside.

Amazing exterior, art nouveau style. Inside is modern. Bakery, meat, fish, cheese and vegetable stores. We sat at a cafe and rested our weary legs.

A relatively small hall offering limited choices of food, drink, and general items. The most interesting aspect is the building itself, rather than the contents!

On the outside this hall is a rather ornate Neo-Renaissance building with Baroque and Byzantine features. Look out for the Sofia coat-of-arms over the main entrance. Also note the clock tower. This structure was first opened in 1911. On the ground floor there are some...More
