What people say

"St. George's Rotunda is considered the oldest building in Sofia. It too has undergone many changes. At the beginning it seems to have been used as a source for mass baptisms, it was then transformed into a mosque during the Ottoman invasion and after the liberation from the Ottomans it returned to being a functioning church for a while. 👣How to get there: reachable on foot from St.Nedelya Church(180m- 2min). Metro stop: Serdika, lines M1 and M4. 🎟️Ticket cost: free"
"Has two claims to fame: it's the oldest building still in use in Sofia, and was originally a bathhouse! When Christianity swept through the Roman Empire, so many people needed to be baptized that church leaders turned one of the small baths into a chapel. It’s also the oldest building in Sofia. "
"The Church of Saint George is a Late Antique red brick rotunda in Sofia, Bulgaria. Built in the early 4th century as Roman baths, it became a church inside the walls of Serdica, capital of ancient Dacia Mediterranea during the Roman Empire and Byzantine"
