The mobile app Sofia CulTour is an interactive platform - a virtual guide for cultural events, cultural and historical landmarks, museums, and cultural routes in the capital. The main objective of the initiative is to draw the attention of both Bulgarians and foreigners to the cultural and historical heritage of Sofia, its museums, galleries and cultural events through technology. The app can be downloaded for free from the App Store and from Google Play. Upon opening the app, the system detects your location and suggests various cultural and historical landmarks, museums, galleries, cultural events or walking tours of Sofia. The system also offers notifications for nearby sites and events. The first version of the app is already available and a second, better version is being developed. It will offer its users new functions such as designing their own cultural routes and others.
The project is funded by Sofia Municipality’s Culture Programme.
