Sofia’s Haunted Buildings: Some Kind of a Church in Boyana

Written by on October 22, 2016 in Bulgaria, Sofia, Sofia Sightseeing - No comments

Boyana Church, one of Sofia’s tourist magnets, was crowded yesterday. A large group of about 50 Indians, who had come to Sofia for one day from Greece, waited in line. Another large group of Chinese tourists were next.

So, we looked at another building, on the same block in Boyana, which turned out to be a haunted house. Well, it looks sort of scary, as if it had been photographed in Pripyat, the ghost town next to the Chernobyl reactors. The relatively modern looking building might have been some kind of a church, since a Christian cross (but not an Orthodox one) greets visitors. That place has looked better. That’s for sure. But it has not looked more interesting.

The haunted building already looks pretty scary from the outside.

This is where we started reaching for our Valium tablets. Scary stuff.

The sound of rattling teeth (ours) was the only noise. This bar is obviously closed. For good.

Now, this is probably Voldemort's room. By now, we were scared shitless.

How scary! We did not bring any spare pants.

How scary!

Satan himself or Celine Dion must have lived here. We were suffering heart attacks, when we entered this haunted room.

Aaaahhhh!

By now, we had one thought on our minds: Let's get the hell out! NOW!
