In this work are represented the minimum and the maximum degrees of the seismic impact and the relevant effects on different types buildings on the territory of Sofia caused by the earthquake on 22nd of May 2012 with magnitude Mw=5.7 and I0=8 MSK. In order to define better the impacts, here are collected and analyzed information and further identification of the damages in Sofia. The observed effects are evaluated using the macroseismic scale MSK-64.
