Central Sofia Market Hall

The sleek Central Market Hall is more of a tourist attraction than a busy authentic bazaar, but it is certainly worth a quick look around if time allows. It mostly sells produce such as local cheeses and meats, but there are few souvenir shops inside as well.


Since the end of communist rule, Sofia has blossomed into a shopper’s paradise. If you are looking for high-end designer boutiques or simple pleasures at the local market, Sofia is guaranteed to satisfy your shopping needs. Vitosha Boulevard and Graf Ignatiev are Sofia’s main shopping areas where you will find the familiar line up of international high street fashion chains. For one-off originals, Shipka, Oborishte and San Stefano Street, near the Alexander Nevski Cathedral are thronging with small boutiques. The covered market on Ekzarh Yosif Street is the place to pick up excellent Bulgarian food.
