The 3850 meter long Rakovski Street – one of the city’s main traffic arteries – is home to most city theatres, thus earning the not so popular nickname “Bulgarian Broadway”. Along the street you will find the National Opera and Ballet, the most prestigious Bulgarian university for film and performing arts NATFA, the first bulgarian puppet theatre, Ivan Vazov National Theatre, Vazrajdane Theatre, Aleko Konstantinov State Satirical Theatre and quite a few other great buildings and institutions. If you go there at night, you won’t be able to miss the rush of the regular theatergoers. Think of Rakovski street as a separate tourist route and take a long walk in order to see the Alexander Nevski Cathedral, the Central Military Club, the lively garden Crystal and the book market on Slaveykov Square.
