The ancient Roman city Serdika may be revived in the downtown of present-day Sofia
, according to the plans of Sofia
`s Chief Architect Petar Dikov. The idea is to unearth and restore the Roman ruins as a historical site. The imperial palace of Constantine the Great, now buried under the "Sheraton" hotel
, would be the most important piece of the complex.
Architects and archaeologists are considering two options - to display the street of the ancient town under a glass roofing, or conserve the ruins underground and connect the site with the antique finds currently displayed in an underground passage in the very center of Sofia
Thus today`s Largo (a group of three buildings from the 1950s, forming a triangle with the former Party House in the middle) would have its ancient underground version and without doubt it would be of great interest to Sofia citizens
