You probably see some of them every day but haven’t realized they are all part of a common project. At our info stand during European Mobility Week we decided to create a game with the poems in order to make people explore the city through poetry and have fun at the same time. They had to pick a random building, guess a riddle to find out which exactly it is, look for the poem on it and take a photo with it in order to win a “Like 2 Bike” t-shirt.
See the winners in our European Mobility Week Photo Album on Facebook.
It was initiated by the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Bulgaria but became a European project in which EU member states and candidate countries share their poetry with Sofia. Within the project each embassy adopted a wall in the centre of the city and decorated it with a poem in its national language as well as translation in Bulgarian and English, thus bringing Europe’s values closer to people.
