The Sredetz Gallery
„Sredetz” is the mediaeval name of the Bulgarian Capital Sofia. The Sredetz Gallery is located in the building of the Ministry of Culture. The Ministry of culture of the Republic of Bulgaria is built on a historical heritage from the beginning of the new era – the building of the institution is erected upon archaeological foundations from the Ancient Rome epoch. After the excavations everything has been preserved. Exactly on top of them, on the ground floor of the Ministry of Culture is located the Sredetz Gallery.
