Дуже сподобалось в Софії. Справді визначна пам’ятка, варта уваги. Єдине, що обурило – це реставраційні роботи… За цими неймовірними конструкціями геть нічого не видно… Всі мозайки позакривали…

Класно, что экскурсию проводят даже для нескольких туристов. Было прикольно свободно ходить по храму без толпы. Меня даже не ругали что я стены руками трогаю))))
