The East Gate of Serdika is located in the subway between the Presidency and the National Assembly building .You can find here antique and souvenir shops , ethnographic and crafts shop,gallery as you browse through the antique ruins.
As stated earlier - The fortified town with round and later triangle towers of Serdika was built in the end of the II century.It was situated in the area between the streets of Legue , Alabin, Pozitano, Washington ,Halite, Ekzarh Josif and Serdika. By the planning of the town was applied the roman regulatory system, where the streets were wide from 3,8 to 6 m and were orientaded north - south and east - west,paved with stones and having water and canalisation networks underneath.
