The building of the former Russian Legation

Architecture

This historic building stands as one of the earliest administrative structures in Sofia following the city’s liberation in 1878. Constructed by Russian architects, it was situated on land allocated for the Provisional Russian Government’s use. Notably, from 1880 to 1976, the building served as the headquarters for the Russian diplomatic mission in Bulgaria, signifying its enduring historical significance within the diplomatic and administrative realms of both nations during that period.
