Borisova gradina (Boris' Garden) is the oldest and most popular park in the city, which contains a seven-thousand square-foot Rosarium with over a thousand different rose species. Theatre is very popular in Bulgaria and Sofia's oldest institution is the Ivan Vazov National Theatre, performing mostly classical plays. The city is home to many smaller theatres, which also show modern plays. The National Art Gallery in the city centre is home to Bulgaria's greatest pieces, whilst the National Gallery for Foreign Art houses great works from all over Europe and the rest of the world. The huge and spectacular Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, which can hold ten thousand people, is one of the most popular attractions.
