Bulgaria's Parliament, the National Assembly, listed as a cultural monument, is situated on the square of the same name on Tsar Osvoboditel Blvd.

Based on plans by architect Constantin Yovanovic, who studied in Vienna and Switzerland and authored the design of the Serbian Assembly (1891-1892) as well, It was built in three stages from 1884 to 1928.

The style of the building is neo-Renaissance. The interior has been refurbished many times but its appearance has been basically preserved in its original shape.

Above the main entrance runs the slogan "Unity makes Strength" (Obedinenieto Pravi Silata) which is a good thing to say but even better if you try to put it into force. That is not the case with our Parliement, tough :)

I have never been inside, I took the picture from the parlieament's web-site. Also there, there is an info that there are organised visits of the place. I never felt an irrisitable desire to visit the parliament, so I haven't checked if it is true. But if you are interested, you may try to call the number below. It is the phone of the Public relations department of the Parliement. They should help you to find the right person for the organised visits.
