The green heart of Sofia's urban beauty, Borisova Gradina is the ideal place to relax during a trip to the Bulgarian capital. Named after Tsar Boris III, the Borisova Gardens have undergone numerous redevelopments but have always remained at the centre of the affections of locals and tourists alike.
Holidaymakers wishing to enjoy the soothing surrounds of Boris' Gardens should stay at a city centre hotel in Sofia. Sofia is blessed with a diverse range of attractions to keep tourists occupied, with guests of the Radisson Blu Grand Hotel Sofia able to access some of the most popular such as the neoclassical Ivan Vazov National Theatre and picturesque Vitosha Mountain.
The wondrous world of Boris' Gardens
The Borisova Gradina is the most famous of all of Sofia's public parks and has the longest historical roots in the city. Construction began on Boris's Gardens in 1884 under the stewardship of renowned gardener Daniel Neff, with many of the ideals that survive to this day being established during this period.
Today the park is full of cafes and eateries for tourists to relax in, as well as ice skating rink for more active holidaymakers.
However the main attraction in Borisova Gradina remains its outstanding array of natural flowers and fauna. Much of the park's paths are lined with towering oak and chestnut trees, with its open green spaces a welcome relief amongst Sofia's bustling modern centre.
