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

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

May 6th, 2018 Posted by Gifted Sofia No Comment yet

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: )

We are very happy to announce that on April 3 our friend GLOW  is opening his first solo show in our gallery at 24 Ivan Denkoglu str. at 7 PM, so you better save the date.

GLOW has been active in the graffiti scene of Sofia since early 2000. Within the years he was working with both letters and figures, nowadays he is focused not on the letters themselves, but more and more on the flow of colors, shapes and composition.

In the show he is presenting canvases, interventions on the walls of the space and his recent collaboration with the craft beers Ah!

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.

You are staying already too long in Sofia and wonder where to go and what to visit outside of the capital?

Shall I rent a car, take the train, or ride a bus?

If you are out of ideas or just don’t want to think about all the small details, why don’t you just come

The fridge door – it is the gate to people’s travels and journeys. It contains memories and a bunch of exciting stories hidden in tiny souvenir magnets we collect from our travels. Some are gifts from our dearest people and others we’ve found after hours of strolling around the cities we’ve been to. And what I mean by hours of strolling is that literally we’ve had been crossing one and the same street for several times in a desperate search for that alternative gift shop that will match perfectly with our arty taste. You know, usually designer souvenir shops like London’s We built this city, Lisbon’s Lisbon lovers (more…)

Everything started 13 years ago when I got my first personal camera, or maybe even further back in time. I can still clearly remember a small film camera, that a friend brought in kinder-garden. When I was 18 I started to observe and catch moments, initially experimenting with light, details and shapes, searching for the beauty of the small things. I was shooting everything, like a kid opening his eyes for the first time. My curiosity for photography and I grew up together, passing through different periods of searching and finding.

I remember also my first trek in Pirin mountain, from Vihren hut to (more…)
