2022 marks 110 years since the international architectural design contest and 95 years since the actual construction of one of Sofia's architectural masterpieces - the building that today houses the Ministry of Agriculture.

The building in Neo-Baroque style is work of renowned Bulgarian architect Nikola Lazarov and is characterized by its curved and richly-decorated facade, stone columns, balconies and balustrades.

We offer you the rare opportunity to see part of the interior of this remarkable building.
