The St. George Rotunda is the oldest preserved building in Sofia. It dates back to the 4th century. There is a dispute as to whether originally it had been Roman Baths, a sanctuary or a building with functions other than these.

Since 6th century the centraldomed premises with a picturesque ancient "Al Fresco" layer and medieval mural paintings had been used as Christian church (rotunda).
