Tucked away behind a colourful garden is this beautiful little church. Buildings like this makes Sofia an interesting place to explore.

The church is actually really cute and special. If you want to enter inside always bring a scarf since in Russian churches you should be covered

Located quite close to the cathedral, but it would be a shame to overlook this lovely little church close to the middle of Sofia, it's beautiful both inside and out.
