Община Варна - култура и изкуство
Candidature of Varna for European Capital of Culture
It was launched on 13 June 1985 by the Greek minister of culture, the famous actress and singer, Melina Mercouri. Initially, the initiative was called European City of Culture in a special motion of the Council of Ministers of the Union.

The official document stated that the European City of Culture was to present a culture which in its historical roots and contemporary development was characterized both by common elements and a heritage which had been due to differences.


Bulgaria’s European Capital of Culture
In 2019, a Bulgarian city and a Italian city will be the European Capitals of Culture. The designation procedures are described in Decision No 1622 of 24 October 2006 by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union.

The applications are assessed by a special commission of 13 members. Seven of them are from European institutions and six are appointed by the applicant-country.



Libraries, Museums and Galleries
Gallery Bulgary

Varna, San Stefano Str

Gallery Bulgary wishes to achieve a couple of different purposes, although only time will show whether those will be its directions. We will try to show the “return” of a number of Bulgarians, who realized themselves abroad, as well as the "come-back" or rather - the later appearance of the wave of artistic life of such artists, who were not so popular then - during the second half of the twentieth century.

 These are all artists, though, without whom the palette of the artistic life in Bulgaria would have been very poor, because most of them have managed to reproduce permanently the feeling we all have nostalgia for - feeling the land which gave birth to us with all our senses, the smell of the land that gave birth to us and the heritage our ancestors left us.
