“second oldest Bulgarian cathedral named after St. Sophia.”

It’s probably older than Hagia Sophia, but yes, it’s second oldest in the city (which incidently was just a castle and a bunch of churches for much of its existence, hence why they renamed it at some point after the church (before it was named after the castle). Not sure what qualifies a cathedral, but it’s just a big church.


As for Hagia Sophia – it wasn’t given away, therefore it should not be returned and I don’t see many willing to take it back.
