The National Gallery for Foreign Art (Bulgarian: Национална галерия за чуждестранно изкуство, Natsionalna galeriya za chuzhdestranno izkustvo) of Bulgaria is a gallery located on St Alexander Nevsky Square in the capital city of Sofia. It serves as the country's national institution for foreign (i.e. non-Bulgarian) art.

It is situated in the imposing 19th-century Neoclassic edifice of the former Royal Printing Office. It was built between 1882 and 1884 during the rule of Knyaz Alexander Battenberg to the designs of Austrian architect Friedrich Schwanberg and reconstructed after it suffered significant damage during the bombing of Sofia in World War II.
