Bulgarian Parliament

Admire the architecture of Bulgaria’s national assembly building and attend a parliamentary session at this elegant government building in Sofia’s city center.

Visit the Bulgarian Parliament to experience the life of Bulgaria’s National Assembly. Marvel at the impressive 19th-century architecture and then get a glimpse of parliamentary activities during a sitting. The Bulgarian Parliament dates back to 1884, when it was constructed by a builder from the German state of Saxony.

Stand at the steps to the main entrance and check out the building’s symmetrical façade, characterized by arched doorways and portico windows. Stroll around the building’s exterior to appreciate its whitewashed, Neo-Renaissance design. Position yourself to the left of the main entrance for the chance to snap a photograph of the building with the magnificent Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in the background.

Check out the Monument to the Tsar Liberator, located in a square in front of the building. This grand statue pays homage to Russian Emperor Alexander II, who led the liberation of Bulgaria from Ottoman rule.

Time your visit to coincide with a sitting of the National Assembly for the chance to join a guided tour and see inside the Bulgarian Parliament. Visits include a specially assigned seat at the sitting, audiovisual displays about the building and what goes on inside, plus the chance to meet with members of parliamentary committees. Full details are available on the National Assembly of Bulgaria’s official website.

The Bulgarian Parliament is a short walk from other major city attractions and easily accessible via public transport. SU Sv. Kliment Ohridski Metro station is less than a 5-minute walk away and a city sightseeing bus also stops nearby. Combine your visit with a leisurely walk around the tree-lined Borisova Gradina (Boris Park). Marvel at the opulent decorations of Alexander Nevsky Cathedral or attend an opera or ballet at the Ivan Vazov National Theatre.
