Tsar Ivan Shishman Street is one of the busiest locations in Sofia. Along it and in the parallel intersections, you can find a lot of local design and accessories, interesting vintage shops, cool bars, and tasty restaurants. We recommend you visit one of the handmade product shops or pick a place for a delicious meal in the area. For people who insist on their style, there are many interesting shoe and clothing ateliers along Shishman, as well as one-of-a-kind jewellery shops.
And on the corner with Graf Ignatiev Street is the iconic Seven Saints church, known among the city’s younger generation as “The Cycle” because of the metaphor of “getting stuck” while doing every day the same thing, spending time on the benches around the square. Sounded by the passing trams, boisterous conversations, and church bells, here you will feel how time seems to stand still, but life around you continues with full force.
