Free-walking giraffes, birthdays in the woods, cute aliens, flying polyglot robots and a Stefan Valdobrev concert in the park. What does the future of Sofia look like in the imagination of its youngest residents?

Sofia City Art Gallery
Sofia City Art Gallery was established on October 22, 1928 by order of Mayor Gen. Vladimir Vazov, and later was accommodated in the reconstructed building of the City Casino at 1 Gurko Street.
It was in Sofia City Art Gallery that the first permanent art exhibition in the country was presented - in 1941, and seven years later part of its collection was transferred to the newly formed National Art Gallery. As an independent institution, the Sofia City Art Gallery was established in 1952. Over the years, Sofia City Art Gallery has established itself as one of the most important cultural spaces in the capital. In 2006 Vaska Emanouilova Gallery opened doors, a branch of Sofia City Art Gallery.
Today the museum has four departments: painting, sculpture, graphics, contemporary art and photography, and the collection numbers over 8,000 works by Bulgarian artists from the late 19th century to the present day. Some of her sculptures can be seen outdoors in the City Garden.
