typical Bulgarian pottery
There are two fairs at NDK that might be interesting to the visitor. The Choose the Bulgarian/Made In Bulgaria fairs take place twice a year, in Spring and Winter. Next one coming, Nov.24 till Dec. 3, 2006. Floors 0 to 5 are filled with many stalls selling Bulgarian made goods, usually cheaper. Mostly clothes but also shoes, accessories, jewelry, cosmetics, gifts, etc. Gets crowded at times.
At the book fair, also held twice a year, the newest Bulgarian books can be found, sometimes presented by their authors. There are also some books in English, German, Spanish, French and Russian, also maps, calendars and CDs. Next book fairs: May 24-28, and Dec. 13-17, 2006.
In the underpass of NDK there are also numerous shops selling cheap clothes, including fakes, etc. There's also a post office and a railways office.
What to buy: Clothes (including good and cheap childrens' clothes), shoes, etc. Some goods are of very good quality, some arent'.
What to pay: Normally prices are slightly cheaper than at retail stores.
Address: 1, Bulgaria Square

Not really a shopping tip unless you're into extravagant, tailor-made clothes. At the window of that store there's a great doll house and every time I pass by it, I stop to admire it. and every time there's something new added: new cars, new furniture, new inhabitants... This is a piece of art! Too bad it's hard to take a good pic. But if you go buy, do stop and you'll be amazed!
Address: Shishman Street
Directions: very close to the Radisson Hotel and the Parliament
