Knyaz Aleksandar Dondukov Boulevard (Bulgarian: Булевард Княз Александър Дондуков), shortly referred to as Dondukov, is an important central boulevard in Sofia. It is named after the Russian general and statesman Alexander Dondukov-Korsakov. It lies between the TZUM and the Chavdar bridge. It crosses several other major streets such as the Vasil Levski Boulevard and Georgi Rakovski Street.
Before the Liberation of Bulgaria it was a small muddy street. It was given its current name in 1881. In 1901 one of the first tram lines in the city were constructed on the street. The boulevard became a market street with a number of shops. After the world wars the boulevard's appearance changed significantly. New buildings were constructed on the place of the old two-floor edifices and the number of shops increased dramatically.
