Ivan Vazov theater

a historical symbol of Sofia

The national theater Ivan Vazov is one of the symbols of Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. It is a marvelous building located in the garden of Grand Hotel Sofia. The theater is constructed in the beginning of the 20th century and officially opens its doors in 1907. The building is later named after the greatest Bulgarian poet, Ivan Vazov.

The theater suffered badly damages several times in its history. In 1923 a fire swept and destroyed the building. During the World War II the building was turned into a ruin again. However, it was quickly rebuilt in both occasions. The last reform of the theater took place a few years ago and now it has three auditoriums with a total capacity of a thousand people.
