... area can be done in less than couple of hours. One very interesting monument we saw was called Church of St. George which was a red brick rotunda, considered to the oldest building in Sofia. It's behind the a hotel in the courtyard surrounded by modern buildings. The church was built by the Romans in 4th Century that used to be a site of pagan temple and during the Ottoman period it was used as a mosque. I'm pleased that no-one's fighting here with ...
