Photosynthesis – Photos, books, coffee and more

If you are interested in photography and you’ve spent some time in Sofia you will come across Photosynthesis for sure. It is maybe the best shop for photo equipment in town. But what I didn’t know until recently and maybe many other people didn’t know either is that they have a really nice cafe on the second floor.

In Photosynthesis you can enjoy a variety of drinks, snacks, and desserts or even light dinner in a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. It is just a perfect fit for whatever mood you are in.

And because it is a photo cafe it is not surprising that there are many photography books and magazines, which perfectly compliment the good coffee or tea. The cafe’s interior is minimalist and stylish, there are always some interesting photo exhibitions on the walls which are changed quite often and the piano in the middle makes the place look very classy. They also regularly organize different events like book presentations, seminars, and discussions.

On the left of the Photosynthesis shop and cafe building, there is a small garden with tables during the summer and also one more building in which they recently opened a gallery. The gallery is reserved for bigger exhibitions and seminars, don’t miss checking what the current exhibition is when you are there, they are quite impressive.
