Boyana is situated in the outskirts of Vitosha and is one of the best quarters of Sofia. There you'll find the small Church of Boyana which is a "world masterpiece" and is included in the Unesco list of the world cultural heritage. The frescoes were made by an unknown artist in 13c.
From the center of Boyana you can reach the Boyana waterfall (1h-1.5h climbing) and look at Sofia from above.
Boyana Church - on the UNESCO list of world treasures, this church was recently restored and more beautiful than any of the pictures you would ever see of it.
You can take a taxi from Sofia top the Boyana suburb, which costs about 3 leva ($1.50) and it takes about 10 minutes. On the way back you can take the 'route taxi' #21(in Bulgarian MARSHRUTNO TAXI), which will take you back to the center on the city at NDK.
