The 21 m high Statue of St. Sofia (Statuya na Sveta Sofia) was erected in 2000 on a site which was once occupied by a Lenin statue. It was designed by the Bulgarian sculptor George Chapkanov.

St. Sofia is the city's patron, although she is not a religious saint. The bird in her left hand symbolises the wisdom of St. Sofia.

Directions:
The Statue of St. Sofia stands at the busy square pl. Nezavisimost, just at the crossing of the streets bul. Knyaginya Maria Luiza and bul. Knyaz Aleksandar Dondukov. It can be found in the close vicinity of the Sheraton Hotel and the Tsum Shopping Mall.

Address: Statue of St. Sofia, pl. Nezavisimost, Sofia
