:) Mila thnx very much for posting those pictures.
Sofia was the very first city outside Albania I ever visited, and just after Tirana and Durres in Albania.
I have only the best memories I could ever have. Great city! Great people!
I stayed at Downtown Hotel @ Vassil Levski blvd. The hotel had recently been built (renovated maybe) at that time and was rather new. It was a nice 4* and everything was perfect. The building itself was very nice as well:
Thnx for bringing all these wonderfull memories in my head,
You rock girl! ;):D

^^WTC is great, it will always look modern and elegant
here are some May construction pics from the surrounding area. there's an "almost" finished subway station and office building
and finally the airport, construction progress towards april
mila, congrats, great job as always. I'll try to find some more recent photos from 2004 or 2005, quite a challenging endeavor...

^Nice pics of Intrepred.
As for the Millenium Center, good question, I've been seeing mentions of the building around for a long time, but I haven't seen any news in a long time. And since we have our very own Sofia correspondent, maybe Braykov might know something

Well I don't want to post this in the normal Sofia thread because it's more about Modern Architecture...
Does anyone know anything about this building?
I found it on Nikola Gruev's galleries:

Well I have no idea about the history of this building but it's nice that finally somebody renovated it:) because it's located in the very centre of the city and just some months ago the facade was peeling and it looked really bad.

Well they've done very well, the choice of color is good, the red background to the grey columns and statue is great. It looks really good to the eye in the picture.
It would be even better if they could get rid of all the cables though

Our modern architecture is still quite behind unfortunately :( BUT the way Bulgarian econmy is going, we might look forward to a bright Bulgarian future and we are soon joining the EU, so things just keep getting better and better :D

I was in Sofia last year. I really enjoyed myself! It isn't a very beautiful city, but all the trees and the good atmosphere more than compensated! I hope I will return there. :)
