For sixth year in a row each Sunday in August my city celebrates! It is colorful, loud, delicious, creative, diverse and so much fun. It is an open celebration of the urban life and culture in Sofia! This is the time of the year I really, really like being in Sofia and I enjoy and cherish how my city has developed throughout the years and how my fellow citizens have become to be. Beautiful, energized, smiling, enjoying life :)
So what is Sofia Breathes, really?
Sofia Breathes is an urban culture festival part of the Cultural Calendar Events of Sofia Capital Municipality. The festival aims at popularizing the central streets of our capital city in an innovative way while contributing towards designing their individual image and directing their recognition as Sofia’s trademarks.
Apart from giving a designated open urban area to various arts, this year few exciting social causes and educational initiatives are highlighted. Each Sunday event has a theme and they are all wroth the time and effort visiting – ecology, visual arts, literature, sports, music and dance. In relation to each theme, there have been invited newly emerged artists, young entrepreneurs and people with innovative business activities.
To me, Sofia Breathes is a breeze of change. It is a close encounter with our urban culture that brings sense of freshness and tons of joy :)
