GIFTED is an urban space of a new type. Its mission is to present Sofia at first place and Bulgaria in general in a innovative and creative way. The space is dedicated to local artists, collectives and brands, who are trying to build the contemporary image of the capital and the country as an attractive touristic destination. Our goal is to meet interesting people, to share information and to make nice collaborations in a cozy athmosphere.

GALLERY

Our gallery aims to be a platform for young, talented local artists, to make interesting collaborations and projects happen, but also to pay attention to the visual heritage of the period 1944-1989 and to be the possible bridge between the different generations in Bulgarian art and design scene.

Central European traveling idea – Bratislava, Prague and Budapest for a week

Central European traveling idea – Bratislava, Prague and Budapest for a week

Everything started with the spontaneous booking of a cheap flight traveling from Sofia to Bratislava.

So far, so good, but what do you do with 7 days in the capital of Slovakia? The answer for us was quite easy – we go to see Prague and Budapest as well.

So we spent our first and our last night in the calm Bratislava. The city is super relaxed and quite walkable. Besides you can also take some of the trams in the center. We definately recommend checking the view from the UFO above Danube. If you have time, go to Danubiana Art Museum or to the Kazmik tv tower.

We were very happy to discover that even last minute there is a great connection from Bratislava to Prague thanks to RegioJet, their trains are super equipped, you get free water and wifi for just 9,90 euro!

Once in Prague we took our time to check some of the beautiful parks the city got.

Letna, Strahov and Parukarka are just few to mention. If you are looking for original locally designed gifts, you should definaately check Pragtique.

Unfortunately there was no direct train connection to Budapest, so we were sitting once again in the RegioJet, this time taking advantage of their board menu ( coffee, water and juice are free : ), then we switched to a bus. The Hungarian capital welcomed us with the Erzsébet téri park, where mostly young people were chilling day and night.

The whole Budapest Design District is worth a walk, with lots of nice shops, bars, clubs and a lovely food court.

In terms of gifts we highly recommend checking Printa,  Fian Koncept and Rododendron.

Budapest has also some amazing metro stations on line 4, be sure to check them out. The historical line 1 is the 3rd oldest in Europe, also worth a ride: )

Deyan Parouchev – Out of stage project, photography exhibition

Deyan Parouchev – Out of stage project, photography exhibition

Out of Stage Project

“Out of stage” is an artistic project directed by Deyan Parouchev with professional dancers in original
locations across Europe. The dancers are invited to perform in curious and original places, as far as possible
from the traditional Opera/theaters stages world. The entire project is in black and white, with mixed
fashion/advertising techniques of light applied to the world of contemporary dance.
The aim of the project is to show that the dance is a universal form of art magnified by the people and the places,
whatever where it takes place.
