The Ivan Vazov National Theatre in Sofia is one of the main cultural centres of the Bulgarian capital.
The name of the theater is a tribute to the Bulgarian poet, novelist and playwright Ivan Vazov, considered one of the best writers in the Bulgarian language.
A model of neoclassical art, this unique building has a colonnade whose capitals support a frieze with mythological motifs.
The goddess Nike, twice present in the sculptures that crown the sides, and the two towers that crown the building are some of the distinctive features of the Ivan Vazov National Theatre, one of the jewels of Bulgarian art.
Sofia’s performance schedule always has a particularly distinguished place for the plays performed at the Vazov.
