Small and neat, the Doctor’s Garden is nestled between Oborishte and Shipka Streets. It’s the heart of the most trendy and prestigious neighborhood of Sofia where many restaurants and cultural sites such as the Union of Bulgarian Artists Gallery are located. The name of the garden comes from the Doctors’ Monument, built in the name of the medical workers who died in the Russo-Turkish War of Liberation (1877 – 1878).
From 1896 until the 1930s, the Doctor’s Garden was also a botanical garden. It contains many species of trees imported from North America such as cypress, ginkgo and white acacia.
