City Art Gallery, Sofia
Not exactly a must see activity but it is an option if you have a time to kill :)
Sofia City Art Gallery (Sofiiska Gradska Hudojestvena Galeria) is showing works from its own fund and organising exhibitions of contemporary Bulgarian and international artists.
A little history :)
As of 1952 Sofia City Art Gallery is an independent institution. In 1973 the gallery was moved to its current building, which used to be the city casino and latter - an exhibition hall of the union of Bulgarian Artists, where the most important cultural events take place, especially in the 1960s of the last century.
