From today, October 20, we are opening a second archaeological park in our city to visitors. After the opening of the Western Gate of Serdica for free access, Sofia residents and guests of the city will also be able to visit the archaeological park Late Antique Mausoleum near South Park in the Lozenets district. This was announced by the Mayor of Sofia, Yordanka Fandakova.
