Following the democratization of the country, the park was again named Boris III.”
“Located at the very center of the city, this beautiful church dates back to the beginning of 20th century. It is an active church with services held every day (the morning one begins at around 08-08:30am on weekdays and around 09:00am on weekends, the evening one begins at around 16:00 or 17:00 depending on the season).
