Manastirski Livadi


“Manastirski livadi” is a neighborhood in the southern part of Sofia, located near Vitosha. It stretches on both sides of Bulgaria Blvd., north of the Ring Road. The neighborhood is bordered by “Bratya Buxton” Blvd. to the west, “Todor Kableshkov” street to the north, “Krastova Vada” quarter to the east, and the Ring Road to the south.

The eastern part of the neighborhood, initially occupied by meadows formerly owned by the Dragalevsky Monastery, has been developed into new modern residential complexes. This area is characterized by high groundwater levels. The inner part of the neighborhood is served by bus line 65, running approximately every 20 minutes.

The western part of the neighborhood, west of Bulgaria Blvd., is densely built-up and continues to see new residential developments. It has relatively good infrastructure. Bulgaria Mall, one of the largest shopping centers in the capital, opened on December 1, 2012, in this part of Manastirski livadi. The Military Institute for Coordination and Standardization is also located here.

Administratively, the neighborhood is divided between two Sofia districts. The part west of Bulgaria Blvd. belongs to the Vitosha region, while the eastern part belongs to the Triaditsa region.

Manastirski livadi is known for its fast development and convenient location close to the center of Sofia. It is served by Bulgaria Blvd., one of the fastest arteries in the city. The neighborhood’s proximity to Vitosha and prestigious residential districts like “Boyana,” “Dragalevtsi,” and “Kinocenter” makes it a sought-after place to live. Manastirski livadi offers a quiet and peaceful atmosphere, a specific microclimate, and clean air. However, one of the challenges is the lack of public green spaces or parks due to rapid privatization.

Notable landmarks include the “St. Sofia” church, Hotel Festa Sofia, boutique shops, service and entertainment establishments, a polyclinic, a sports hall, three renowned schools (one with extended study in English and the other in German), and three kindergartens. The neighborhood lacks public green spaces or parks, and efforts are underway for the construction of a school and a park area.

Public transport in the area includes buses (A) 64, 65, 73, 74, 76, 111, 204, 304, trams (TM) 7, 27, trolleybuses (TB) 2, 8, 9, night bus line N4, and an additional (supply) line D1. The railway station Manastirski Livadi – B is also accessible in the vicinity.
