Three architects - jubilarians

The exhibition presents three important architects: Naum Torbov, Lazar Parashkevanov and Petso Zlatev, whose birth anniversary we celebrate in 2020. What they all have in common is that all of them received their education abroad. After that, they returned and joined the cultural and social life of Sofia.
They worked in different periods and created works that are part of the history of Bulgarian architecture. Through their work we can trace the architectural styles of the city - from neo-Byzantine, through secession, to modernism.
Among some of the most famous buildings by the three architects are the National Opera and Ballet, Lozenets Residence, the Central Sofia Market Hall, the Sofia Municipality Building at 33 Moskovska Street, Hemus Hotel, the National Assembly building (the former Party House), Georgi Asparuhov Stadium and others.

120 years of Sofia Arsenal - Exhibition

120 years of Sofia Arsenal - Exhibition

Earth and Man National Museum celebrates the anniversary with a poster exhibition that traces the various transformations of Sofia Arsenal over the years.

For a little over a century, the buildings of Sofia Arsenal have undergone many incarnations. They have been used as workshops for the production and repair of weapons and ammunition, a dining room and gymnasium of the School for Reserve Officers, workshops of the State Printing House, a museum.

The development of the Complex, from its establishment - at the end of the XIX century, until today is connected with several stages of the history of Sofia - the initial industrial development of the capital, the years of wars and destruction, periods of changes in the political regime.

Some of the Arsenal's buildings were demolished in 1985, but the remaining ones were reconstructed and turned into museums. These are present-day Earth and Man National Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the former Garrison Shooting Range Memorial.

Ticket-only event.
