Meetings in Paris

The exhibition MEETINGS IN PARIS is dedicated to a trip of a group of Bulgarian artists to the world capital of art in the 1930s and the influence of European modernity on their work.

There are 44 works (sculptures, drawings and paintings) by authors who lived in Paris in the 1930s or connected with the "Parisian spirit" - Nenko Balkanski, Georgi Popov (John), Donka Konstantinova, Iliya Beshkov. Of particular interest is a hitherto unseen series of drawings, illustrations by Iliya Beshkov to the book Paris, a Novel-Chronicle by Todor Genov. Along with other works of Vaska Emanuilova from the Gallery's as well as private collections, which have not been shown so far, and pages from notebooks where she wrote about her impressions of the Parisian museums are also included.

“SOFIA – CAPITAL OF UNIFIED BULGARIA”

THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF MILITARY HISTORY PRESENTS THE EXHIBITION “SOFIA – CAPITAL OF UNIFIED BULGARIA”

29.10.2020 – 1.06.2021

Тhe exhibition “Sofia – Capital of Unified Bulgaria” focuses on the role of Sofia as epicentre for the decisions which rendered the dream for the unification of the Principality of Bulgaria and Eastern Rumelia possible. The exhibition narrative highlights the act of the Unification and its military defence; the role of diplomacy and of the efforts of the institutions in Sofia; the growth of the town into a capital of unified Bulgaria – a central of all state institutions and a unifying heart for the Bulgarians in the Principality of Bulgaria and in Eastern Rumelia. The exhibition presents exhibits – symbols of the dream for unification. Among them are regulation colours and volunteerunits’ banners, under the folds of which Bulgarians defended at once the cause of the Unification, and Sofia – Serbian forces’ immediate objective.

Personal belongings of Prince Alexander I, of the Speaker of the National Assembly Stefan Stambolov, of the Prime Minister Petko Karavelov, of the Minister of Justice Vasil Radoslavov, of the Minister of War Captain Konstantin Nikiforov, and others, frame Sofia’s efforts towards a swift administrative and legislative integration and towards the transformation of the capital into a centre of Unified Bulgaria.

A specially developed touch-screen application rediscovers Sofia’s place in the events from 135 years ago, focusing on the role of institutions, public buildings, and private homes of the capital’s urban environment.

Entrance fee. Tickets at the ticket-desk of National Museum of Military History.

The exhibition is realized in partnership with the Regional History Museum – Sofia, Directorate of Museums– Koprivshtitsa, and Stefan Noykov Foundation, within the “Sofia – Capital of Unified Bulgaria” project, funded by the “Culture” programme of Sofia Municipality.

Sofia’s Homes Photo exhibition

Open-air gallery in the park in front of the National Palace of Culture (next to Cabana cinema)
The photographic exhibition Sofia’s Homes presents 27 architectural values of Sofia. Beautiful, stylish, and magnificent, these buildings remind us of the rapid development of Sofia in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. On April 3, 1879 (March 22 in old style) during the Constituent Assembly of Veliko Tarnovo, Sofia was proclaimed Capital of Bulgaria and residence of the Knyaz. In less than three decades, old Sofia, with a population of about 12,000, acquired beautiful architectural structures, magnificent buildings such as the Military Club and the National Theater, electric lighting, trams, and yellow cobblestones. The exhibition shows the point of view of Zdravko Petrov, author of the book "Historical Routes: Sofia" and the website historicalroutes.bg, which reveal interesting facts about the architecture and history of the most beautiful houses and public buildings in our capital.

Тhe exhibition “Sofia – Capital of Unified Bulgaria” focuses on the role of Sofia as epicentre for the decisions which rendered the dream for the unification of the Principality of Bulgaria and Eastern Rumelia possible. The exhibition narrative highlights the act of the Unification and its military defence; the role of diplomacy and of the efforts of the institutions in Sofia; the growth of the town into a capital of unified Bulgaria – a central of all state institutions and a unifying heart for the Bulgarians in the Principality of Bulgaria and in Eastern Rumelia. The exhibition presents exhibits – symbols of the dream for unification. Among them are regulation colours and volunteerunits’ banners, under the folds of which Bulgarians defended at once the cause of the Unification, and Sofia – Serbian forces’ immediate objective.

Personal belongings of Prince Alexander I, of the Speaker of the National Assembly Stefan Stambolov, of the Prime Minister Petko Karavelov, of the Minister of Justice Vasil Radoslavov, of the Minister of War Captain Konstantin Nikiforov, and others, frame Sofia’s efforts towards a swift administrative and legislative integration and towards the transformation of the capital into a centre of Unified Bulgaria.

A specially developed touch-screen application rediscovers Sofia’s place in the events from 135 years ago, focusing on the role of institutions, public buildings, and private homes of the capital’s urban environment.

Entrance fee. Tickets at the ticket-desk of National Museum of Military History.

The exhibition is realized in partnership with the Regional History Museum – Sofia, Directorate of Museums– Koprivshtitsa, and Stefan Noykov Foundation, within the “Sofia – Capital of Unified Bulgaria” project, funded by the “Culture” programme of Sofia Municipality.

Fear/ Opening of Kinomania

Love beyond fear - this is how the film can be described in three words. This is a story about tolerance and humanity, about alienation, but also about the need for intimacy, about the prejudices caused by the fear of the different. A story that both saddens and amuses you.

The leading roles are played by the actress Svetlana Yancheva and Michael Fleming, who is actually a composer and lives in Bulgaria. The cast also includes Ivan Savov (known from Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov’s films Lesson and The Father), Krasimir Dokov, Kristina Yaneva, Miroslava Gogovska and others.

29.10.2020 – 1.06.2021

Тhe exhibition “Sofia – Capital of Unified Bulgaria” focuses on the role of Sofia as epicentre for the decisions which rendered the dream for the unification of the Principality of Bulgaria and Eastern Rumelia possible.

The exhibition presents exhibits – symbols of the dream for unification. Among them are regulation colours and volunteerunits’ banners, under the folds of which Bulgarians defended at once the cause of the Unification, and Sofia – Serbian forces’ immediate objective.

Personal belongings of Prince Alexander I, of the Speaker of the National Assembly Stefan Stambolov, of the Prime Minister Petko Karavelov, of the Minister of Justice Vasil Radoslavov, of the Minister of War Captain Konstantin Nikiforov, and others, frame Sofia’s efforts towards a swift administrative and legislative integration and towards the transformation of the capital into a centre of Unified Bulgaria.

A specially developed touch-screen application rediscovers Sofia’s place in the events from 135 years ago, focusing on the role of institutions, public buildings, and private homes of the capital’s urban environment.

Entrance fee. Tickets at the ticket-desk of National Museum of Military History.

“SOFIA – CAPITAL OF UNIFIED BULGARIA”

THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF MILITARY HISTORY PRESENTS THE EXHIBITION “SOFIA – CAPITAL OF UNIFIED BULGARIA”

29.10.2020 – 1.06.2021

Тhe exhibition “Sofia – Capital of Unified Bulgaria” focuses on the role of Sofia as epicentre for the decisions which rendered the dream for the unification of the Principality of Bulgaria and Eastern Rumelia possible. The exhibition narrative highlights the act of the Unification and its military defence; the role of diplomacy and of the efforts of the institutions in Sofia; the growth of the town into a capital of unified Bulgaria – a central of all state institutions and a unifying heart for the Bulgarians in the Principality of Bulgaria and in Eastern Rumelia. The exhibition presents exhibits – symbols of the dream for unification. Among them are regulation colours and volunteerunits’ banners, under the folds of which Bulgarians defended at once the cause of the Unification, and Sofia – Serbian forces’ immediate objective.

Personal belongings of Prince Alexander I, of the Speaker of the National Assembly Stefan Stambolov, of the Prime Minister Petko Karavelov, of the Minister of Justice Vasil Radoslavov, of the Minister of War Captain Konstantin Nikiforov, and others, frame Sofia’s efforts towards a swift administrative and legislative integration and towards the transformation of the capital into a centre of Unified Bulgaria.

A specially developed touch-screen application rediscovers Sofia’s place in the events from 135 years ago, focusing on the role of institutions, public buildings, and private homes of the capital’s urban environment.

Entrance fee. Tickets at the ticket-desk of National Museum of Military History.

The exhibition is realized in partnership with the Regional History Museum – Sofia, Directorate of Museums– Koprivshtitsa, and Stefan Noykov Foundation, within the “Sofia – Capital of Unified Bulgaria” project, funded by the “Culture” programme of Sofia Municipality.
