    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can find there not only the newest books but also antique books, text books, second hand books, etc.
    You may sit on the bench next to two of the most famous Bulgarian authors Petko Slavejkov and Pencho Slavejkov. The square is named after them.

    Poets' Bench

    Well, Westmister Abbey has its Poets' corner, Sofia has its Poets' Bench. It's situated at Slaveikov Square, and on it you can see Petko Slaveikov and Pencho Slaveikov, a father and a son, both poets and writers. At the square there is a big book-market, a fountain, the city librarty, and... McDonalds. This picture was taken in the winter of 2001/2002 when we got a lot of snow...

    You can often see those South American Musicians playing their native music around the Fountain of Slaveikov Square and some other locations in Sofia. I'm sure there is a band like this in every big city in the world. I've seen one in Budapest in a subway and was very impressed at the time.

    You cannot miss it - the biggest open air book market in the very center of Sofia where you can also find cheap CDs, DVDs and all kind of software. The square is named after the great Bulgarian poet Petko Slaveikov. Sofia Library, McDonalds, Bonjour shop and Slaveikov cinema are also situated on this square.

    It's a great pleasure to sit next to the Bulgarian classical poets Petko and Pencho
    Slaveykovi. After learning Bulgarian you can read them too. :-)
