Tsentrali Hali, Sofia Central Market. Info, opening hours

Tsentrali Hali

Housed in an ancient building from the early 1900s, the historian Tsentrali Hali represents one of the most unmissable stops on a holiday in Sofia.

The Central market is located in one of the most interesting areas of the city, where traces of the past merge with the present. It is located not far from the splendid Synagogue, not far from the Cathedral, and along the boulevard Knyaginya Maria Luiza, which is the shopping and shopping district.

Tsentrali Hali of Sofia hosts several stalls with gastronomic products, but also clothing, accessories, trinkets, souvenirs and much more.

In the two floors of the market, you will really find everything, with an extraordinary and varied offer, among multiple flavors, coming from every world. Great space, obviously, for the Bulgarian traction, with typical products already prepared, which you will be able to taste. The only drawback, the lack of seats. You will find, however, some bars. There is also a supermarket and a large perfumery.

In short, nothing is missing in this evocative, and interesting market.
