"Enjoy A Stroll In The Park - Borisova Gradina" Borisova Garden Tip by johngayton
Borisova Garden, Sofia: 4 reviews and 9 photos
This is Sofia's biggest and best known park and is certainly well worth a wander, especially to escape from the ubiquitous infernal-combusting engined machines for a short while. Boris's Garden was constructed in the late 19th century as the behest of the then mayor, Ivan Hadzienhov to be showcase for Bulgaria's Capital City.
A showcase it certainly is with miles of tree-lined avenues, interesting sculptures and many other features, including of course the obligatory Soviet Monument. Even on a November Monday lunchtime there were plenty of locals out enjoying their city-centre oasis and by all accounts it is especially popular with families during the summer.
I'd only visited between buses but next time I'll give it a proper visit.
Address: near the eagle's bridge
Directions: Near the Eagle Bridge, in front of the Levski stadium.
