Sofia University “Kliment Ohridski”

One of the most impressive buildings in Sofia is the edifice of Sofia University.

I believe few of you can remember a place in the world where the University is in the heart of the city.

The land and the money for the construction of the building were part of the will of the trader and banker Evlogi Georgiev and his brother Christo Georgiev (whose statutes are sitting in front of the University, sculptor K. Shivarov).

The University exists from October 1st 1888 when Prof. Ivan Shishmanov started teaching history and philology. But the institution of higher education did not yet inhabit the present building. The foundation stone of Sofia University’s new edifice was laid on 30 June 1924.
