Statue of Saint Sofia, Sofia: 8 reviews and 16 photos
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.
The statue actually doesn't refer to the holy Saint Sofia, but to the holy wisdom, which is symbolised by the owl in the left hand of the young woman.
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
