Sofia, old buildings and beautiful gardens

Another day of exploration, another day of record-breaking step counts on my health app. This is the old Central Bath House, fed from a hot natural sulphur spring. There are fountains around the side of the building where you can fill up water containers for free. The picture is somewhat spoilt by the big ugly tower in the background but I don’t have access to my Photoshop here to remove it. Nowadays the baths are gone and it’s a museum, so no opportunity to soak up the local culture.


This is the Banya Bashi Mosque.


In close proximity to the Mosque are a Synagogue and an Orthodox Church. Someone suggested I could take a panorama shot incorporating all three but I wasn’t terribly enthusiastic about standing in the middle of a busy main road to do this.


And this little church, Rotunda St George, is well hidden by the large building erected during the post-war years. 


Another small church, St Peter’s, this one tucked away next to a busy thoroughfare
