Narrative

mountains rising to c. 1,500 m in N Alexander Island, bounded to the NW by Palestrina Glacier, to the E and SE by Poste Valley and Nichols Snowfield and to the W by McManus Glacier. The name derives from a visit in Feb. 1988 by a field geology party comprised of members of BAS and the first Bulgarian Antarctic Expedition. It commemorates the centennial of the founding of the University of Sofia (APC, 1991).
