During Ottoman rule it was an unadjusted street and acquired the name Vitosha Street after the Liberation, in 1883.
Vitosha boulevard was initially built up with low one-storey houses, but turned into an imposing trade street in the Interwar period as there was a massive construction of new buildings.
Nowadays the boulevard is free from traffic and it is fantastic to walk through it with all the shops, great cafes with wonderful terraces and good restaurants.
