Sofia Municipality is creating a digital archive of photos of old Sofia

Monday, 15 March 2021

Archival photos of buildings with the status of immovable cultural heritage can be found on the website of the Department of Architecture and Urban Planning of Sofia Municipality.

All photos were taken in the period 1976 - 1977 and are part of a proposal for a declaration of architectural monuments of culture from the period 1878 - 1944 in Sofia known as the "Blue Book" of the NIICH. Photos of buildings located on 15 streets and squares have been published, and other photos will be added in the coming weeks.

The photo album is part of the work of a group formed in September 1976 with the deputy director of NIICH, arch. Stefan Mateev. Their task was to prepare proposals for the declaration of all cultural monuments in Sofia, as well as to implement Decree № 36 of the Council of Ministers for the declaration of cultural monuments in Serdica Archaeological Reserve.
