Macedonia Square


Macedonia Square serves as a pivotal intersection in the heart of Sofia, Bulgaria. In the era preceding Bulgaria’s liberation from Ottoman rule, this site was traversed by a ditch. Notably, the passage within it was known as Halka Porta (Halka Kapusu), with cemeteries emerging to the west. During the period of communist rule until 1989, the square bore the name of Dimitar Blagoev.

Today, the square is encircled by key thoroughfares in Sofia, including “Hristo Botev” Boulevard (formerly Ferdinand Boulevard), the aptly named “Macedonia” Boulevard (previously Kyustandilsko or Knyajevsko Shosse in the 19th century), and “Alabin” Street.
