Over the past ten years the guides of the Free Sofia Tour have had the privilege of guiding thousands of guests from all corners of the globe around Sofia’s main landmarks. We’ve also had the chance to welcome some pretty special guests. However, few occasions can compare to a special tour with His Excellency, German ambassador Christoph Eichhorn, dedicated to Germany’s 30th Reunification Anniversary.
What a monumental event! Here in Sofia, as part of the celebrations a special tailor-made tour was developed to honor the occasion. It was called
“The 5 B’s: Battenberg, Bauhaus, Brutalism, Berlin and Bulgaria: following the steps of the German-Bulgarian history in Sofia.”
This was an exclusive one-off event, open to all those curious to learn more about this fascinating topic. This rather unusual tour route and topic sparked a huge interest among the local community. So much that we’ve had to add extra slots and a second tour guide. The tour followed the German – Bulgarian relations from the establishment of the 3rd Bulgarian State to the present day. The discussion was focused on history, architecture, special relations and more.
The final stop of our tour was Sofia’s Lovers’ Bridge. Right behind the National Palace of Culture. An exhibition dedicated to this special anniversary was waiting to be explored there and add even more to the story. You might have missed the tour but the exhibition is still there! You’ll have the chance to see it until 18th of October 2020.
„Стената я няма, Слава Богу! Това, което остана, са различни биографии и културен опит. Затова е важно ние в европейското семейство да си говорим“, подчертава посланик Кристоф Айххорн в предаването “Панорама” по БНТ.
Щастливи сме, че екипът на Free Sofia Tour беше част от празненствата, чрез разработването на една необикновена обиколка на София под надслов:
5 пъти Б: Батенберг, Баухаус, Брутализъм, Берлин и България – по следите на българо-германската история в София“
Бяхме изключително щастливи от големия интерес. Дори се наложи да добавим допълнителни места и втори екскурзовод. Благодарим ви, че заедно отбелязахме тази важна годишнина!
