The festival is held every Sunday of August, in Sofia.
Festival “Sofia breathes” is part of the “Cultural calendar of Sofia” and from 2010 until 2014 it was held in support of the candidacy of Sofia and South West region for “European capital of culture 2019”.
The festival’s programme unites visual and performing arts, literature, ecology and sports, sociological and educational initiatives.
Festival “Sofia breathes” gives to its guests an unconventional and intriguing way of getting to know more about the richness of Sofia’s cultural life, which only awaits to be re-discovered.
“Sofia breathes” aims to achieve the big potential of Sofia in cultural, social and economical aspect.
The festival’s ambitions are aimed at the hundreds of independent Bulgarian authors, different organisations and initiatives, who will have the opportunity to express themselves.
This way our capital will position itself on the cultural map, as a serious centre for culture and events and it will also change positively its image in Europe and the rest of the world.
