Three architects - jubilarians

The exhibition presents three important architects: Naum Torbov, Lazar Parashkevanov and Petso Zlatev, whose birth anniversary we celebrate in 2020. What they all have in common is that all of them received their education abroad. After that, they returned and joined the cultural and social life of Sofia.
They worked in different periods and created works that are part of the history of Bulgarian architecture. Through their work we can trace the architectural styles of the city - from neo-Byzantine, through secession, to modernism.
Among some of the most famous buildings by the three architects are the National Opera and Ballet, Lozenets Residence, the Central Sofia Market Hall, the Sofia Municipality Building at 33 Moskovska Street, Hemus Hotel, the National Assembly building (the former Party House), Georgi Asparuhov Stadium and others.

Among some of the most famous buildings by the three architects are the National Opera and Ballet, Lozenets Residence, the Central Sofia Market Hall, the Sofia Municipality Building at 33 Moskovska Street, Hemus Hotel, the National Assembly building (the former Party House), Georgi Asparuhov Stadium and others.

Three architects - jubilarians

The exhibition presents three important architects: Naum Torbov, Lazar Parashkevanov and Petso Zlatev, whose birth anniversary we celebrate in 2020. What they all have in common is that all of them received their education abroad. After that, they returned and joined the cultural and social life of Sofia.
They worked in different periods and created works that are part of the history of Bulgarian architecture. Through their work we can trace the architectural styles of the city - from neo-Byzantine, through secession, to modernism.
Among some of the most famous buildings by the three architects are the National Opera and Ballet, Lozenets Residence, the Central Sofia Market Hall, the Sofia Municipality Building at 33 Moskovska Street, Hemus Hotel, the National Assembly building (the former Party House), Georgi Asparuhov Stadium and others.

TOMORROW'S MEMORIES - photo exhibition of the artists Margarita Ruseva and Raymondo

Outdoor gallery in Crystal Garden
Intuitive, poetic, sincere - the photos from their fourth joint project tell the story of our strange present. A story of masks and appearances, freedom and restrictions.
The format of the portraits is intimate and accessible to the viewer. 26 moods, 26 states. The focus is on the expressive eyes of the girls in the photos . The choice of a mask, often playful and psychological, is a way of self-expression.
The photos capture the mood of a chaotic and, to put it mildly, atypical year. What happened to us during this time? Did it change us? How did we react?
According to the authors beauty lies precisely there - beyond the limits of not stopping to breathe and live freely. Somewhere there is the colorful beginning of our memories of tomorrow.

The exhibition presents three important architects: Naum Torbov, Lazar Parashkevanov and Petso Zlatev, whose birth anniversary we celebrate in 2020. What they all have in common is that all of them received their education abroad. After that, they returned and joined the cultural and social life of Sofia.

Among some of the most famous buildings by the three architects are the National Opera and Ballet, Lozenets Residence, the Central Sofia Market Hall, the Sofia Municipality Building at 33 Moskovska Street, Hemus Hotel, the National Assembly building (the former Party House), Georgi Asparuhov Stadium and others.

TOMORROW'S MEMORIES - photo exhibition of the artists Margarita Ruseva and Raymondo

Outdoor gallery in Crystal Garden
Intuitive, poetic, sincere - the photos from their fourth joint project tell the story of our strange present. A story of masks and appearances, freedom and restrictions.
The format of the portraits is intimate and accessible to the viewer. 26 moods, 26 states. The focus is on the expressive eyes of the girls in the photos . The choice of a mask, often playful and psychological, is a way of self-expression.
The photos capture the mood of a chaotic and, to put it mildly, atypical year. What happened to us during this time? Did it change us? How did we react?
According to the authors beauty lies precisely there - beyond the limits of not stopping to breathe and live freely. Somewhere there is the colorful beginning of our memories of tomorrow.

Three architects - jubilarians

The exhibition presents three important architects: Naum Torbov, Lazar Parashkevanov and Petso Zlatev, whose birth anniversary we celebrate in 2020. What they all have in common is that all of them received their education abroad. After that, they returned and joined the cultural and social life of Sofia.
They worked in different periods and created works that are part of the history of Bulgarian architecture. Through their work we can trace the architectural styles of the city - from neo-Byzantine, through secession, to modernism.
Among some of the most famous buildings by the three architects are the National Opera and Ballet, Lozenets Residence, the Central Sofia Market Hall, the Sofia Municipality Building at 33 Moskovska Street, Hemus Hotel, the National Assembly building (the former Party House), Georgi Asparuhov Stadium and others.

Three architects - jubilarians

The exhibition presents three important architects: Naum Torbov, Lazar Parashkevanov and Petso Zlatev, whose birth anniversary we celebrate in 2020. What they all have in common is that all of them received their education abroad. After that, they returned and joined the cultural and social life of Sofia.
They worked in different periods and created works that are part of the history of Bulgarian architecture. Through their work we can trace the architectural styles of the city - from neo-Byzantine, through secession, to modernism.
Among some of the most famous buildings by the three architects are the National Opera and Ballet, Lozenets Residence, the Central Sofia Market Hall, the Sofia Municipality Building at 33 Moskovska Street, Hemus Hotel, the National Assembly building (the former Party House), Georgi Asparuhov Stadium and others.

TOMORROW'S MEMORIES - photo exhibition of the artists Margarita Ruseva and Raymondo

Outdoor gallery in Crystal Garden
Intuitive, poetic, sincere - the photos from their fourth joint project tell the story of our strange present. A story of masks and appearances, freedom and restrictions.
The format of the portraits is intimate and accessible to the viewer. 26 moods, 26 states. The focus is on the expressive eyes of the girls in the photos . The choice of a mask, often playful and psychological, is a way of self-expression.
The photos capture the mood of a chaotic and, to put it mildly, atypical year. What happened to us during this time? Did it change us? How did we react?
According to the authors beauty lies precisely there - beyond the limits of not stopping to breathe and live freely. Somewhere there is the colorful beginning of our memories of tomorrow.

Three architects - jubilarians

The exhibition presents three important architects: Naum Torbov, Lazar Parashkevanov and Petso Zlatev, whose birth anniversary we celebrate in 2020. What they all have in common is that all of them received their education abroad. After that, they returned and joined the cultural and social life of Sofia.
They worked in different periods and created works that are part of the history of Bulgarian architecture. Through their work we can trace the architectural styles of the city - from neo-Byzantine, through secession, to modernism.
Among some of the most famous buildings by the three architects are the National Opera and Ballet, Lozenets Residence, the Central Sofia Market Hall, the Sofia Municipality Building at 33 Moskovska Street, Hemus Hotel, the National Assembly building (the former Party House), Georgi Asparuhov Stadium and others.

Intuitive, poetic, sincere - the photos from their fourth joint project tell the story of our strange present. A story of masks and appearances, freedom and restrictions.
The format of the portraits is intimate and accessible to the viewer. 26 moods, 26 states. The focus is on the expressive eyes of the girls in the photos . The choice of a mask, often playful and psychological, is a way of self-expression.
The photos capture the mood of a chaotic and, to put it mildly, atypical year. What happened to us during this time? Did it change us? How did we react?

The Scars of War: The Lost Architectural Heritage of Sofia

4.7.2019 – 30.9.2020

The National History Museum presents immersive space “The Scars of War: The Lost Architectural Heritage of Sofia”. The exhibition will run until end of September.

With sensory impulses, authentic video footage, photo archives and emblematic exhibits, the visitor will be “immersed” in the period before and during the bombings, will wander through the calm and beautiful pre-war Sofia, will witness the devastating blow that war inflicted on the city and will experience the fate of the hundreds people who lost their homes. The memories of eyewitnesses, recreated by famous Bulgarian actors will complete the narrative about some of the most dramatic days of the Bulgarian capital.

The project “The Scars of War: The Lost Architectural Heritage of Sofia” was brought to life in partnership with the Bulgarian National Film Archives, and funded by the “Culture” program of Sofia Municipality.

Three architects - jubilarians

The exhibition presents three important architects: Naum Torbov, Lazar Parashkevanov and Petso Zlatev, whose birth anniversary we celebrate in 2020. What they all have in common is that all of them received their education abroad. After that, they returned and joined the cultural and social life of Sofia.
They worked in different periods and created works that are part of the history of Bulgarian architecture. Through their work we can trace the architectural styles of the city - from neo-Byzantine, through secession, to modernism.
Among some of the most famous buildings by the three architects are the National Opera and Ballet, Lozenets Residence, the Central Sofia Market Hall, the Sofia Municipality Building at 33 Moskovska Street, Hemus Hotel, the National Assembly building (the former Party House), Georgi Asparuhov Stadium and others.
