Before I came to Bulgaria’s capital I was warned that Sofia was not an especially attractive city and had little to see. I soon found out how wrong that is. In recent years the city has tidied itself up and done a lot to highlight its history, especially its Roman antiquities.
But history is not its only attraction. There are plenty of grand buildings in a variety of architectural styles, from ornate Orthodox churches to brutalist Communist office blocks. And as I walked around I found plenty of attractive street art.
Some of most attractive paintings were on to what seemed to be electrical or telephony cabinets of some sort. I found quite a few examples of such decorated bits of street furniture, both here and in Plovdiv. I thought it a great idea to make the mundane look so attractive!
And on my final morning in the city I came across another great collection of really bright street art; this time in a small car park near the Serdika metro station.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this quick wander past some of the brightest street art in Bulgaria’s capital, shared for Becky’s Bright Squares.
