Go for the Statues but Stay for the Vendors

It took me a little while for me to find the place but once there, you'll notice that the statues are an after-thought as there are vendors selling all types of unique items.

Was given the history about the statue and there are 4 shadows on the 4 despite only 2 figures, this is inviting you to sit down and join them

Found this only by asking several locals as it's a little bit of the beaten track. Worth it if only for the quirky photo opportunity.

The Statue represent two of the greatest bulgarian authors - Father and Son Slaveikovi. It is very popular square. There is a full year book market and it is a favourite meeting spot for the people living near the center.

The statue and the street itself are very beautiful and iconic for Sofia. If you are going on a tour, I would definitely recommend a stroll there!

Situated in the downtown, this square is always full with people selling books and records. A lot of other shops and restaurants are situated near by.

This famous Statue of Slaveikovs is located in its namesake Slaveikov Square. The statue eternalizes two poets, a father and son, sitting on a bench. Feel free to sit down right next to the famed Bulgarian publicists and capture the moment on camera!

Although this statue is on the beginning of the square in front of secondhand book market. I went around three times without notice and searching is on different place. Such sculptures are popular in many towns these days but when you are in the centre of Sofia why not.
