Fred in front of the oldest church in the Balkans, St George's
Here we are in Sofia, capital of Bulgaria.
It was very hot when we arrived but we had a good taxi ride ot our very comfortable hotel in the centre and after a quick splash, we set off to investigate what the city has to offer.
Here is Fred outside what is one of the oledest churches in the Balkans.
The church has been beautifully restored. It was built at the time of Constantine The Great who visited Sofia many times, on the location of a previous temple. It was later converted to a mosque under the Ottomans but restored to being a church in the 20th century. There was a service going on when we visited... there is something very enchanting about an Orthodox service.
