City Guide
Mall Centres

     There are 6 malls already working and another 3 due to open by the end of 2012. One could say Sofia is oversupplied! The first two were in or close to the city centre while the latest batch will all be on or close to the ringroad. The malls have a good mix of international and local brand names, and some have cinemas, bowling alleys and other entertainment options.

     Mall of Sofia is fairly centrally located with a large cinema complex. As one of the first malls to be built, it is smaller than its succesors but its proximity to the city centre and the nearby metro station ensure it is well frequented.

     City Centre Sofia is centrally located, behind the Hilton hotel and close to the National Palace of Culture. 

     The Mall is Sofia's largest shopping mall, opened in 2010. It boasts not just shops but also 8 cinema screens, large entertainment centre with bowling alley, pool tables, etc, large food hall and Sofia's only Carrefour supermarket in the basement.
