This is the first higher education school in Bulgaria. Sofia University was founded in the 80s of the 19th century, while the old European universities had been established between XII and XIX centuries. However, the University was built upon strong scholar and educational traditions of Medieval Bulgaria, dating back in the time of the eminent Bulgarian rulers Knyaz Boris I and Tsar Simeon (Symeon the Great). The first step towards its foundation was the opening of a Course in Pedagogy at the First Secondary School for Boys in Sofia in 1887. Due to the success of this teacher-training course,the National Assembly issued a decree at the end of 1888, transforming the course into a School of Higher Education.
The building is really amazing and very impressive with its architecture.
I surely can say this is the best university in Bulgaria.

Address: 15 Tsar Osvoboditel Blvd.
Directions: You'll notice this building, I'm sure.
