Reclaiming the Rivers of Sofia

Jan 9, 2023

Sofia, Bulgaria. Reviving the city’s rundown and inaccessible riverbeds.

The Rivers of Sofia initiative consists of an annual festival that transforms the rivers and people’s perception of them.
Gathering a community of public and private partners, the festival breathes a new life to the heritage site and made it a venue for a cultural programme that has engaged diverse social groups.
The festival is now one of the most popular urban events in Sofia and longer-term improvements to the rivers’ conditions are in the making.
