Multiview Postcard of Sofia, Bulgaria

Thank you to Silia for send me this wonderful & colourful multi-view mapcard with such beautiful stamps from Bulgaria. (Europe and Middle East-Asia-Africa-Oceania RR Group #11)

Sofia (Bulgarian: София), is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Bulgaria.

The magnificent building in the heart of the postcard is Alexander Nevsky Cathedral.

I learned from wikipedia, The St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral (Bulgarian: Храм-паметник „Свети Александър Невски“, Hram-pametnik „Sveti Aleksandar Nevski“) is a Bulgarian Orthodox cathedral in Sofia. Built in Neo-Byzantine style, it serves as the cathedral church of the Patriarch of Bulgaria and is one of the largest Eastern Orthodox cathedrals in the world, as well as one of Sofia's symbols and primary tourist attractions.
