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 and guests.
