WHERE IN BULGARIA? © Anthony Georgieff

Obviously, this is not a Paris, not even a Copenhagen, but if you dare take your eyes off the uneven pavements you will see very interesting things. Strange faces of allegories and mythic creatures look down at you. Most of them date back to the first half of the 20th Century when the city was on its way to become an European capital.

Many, however, originate from the times of Communism and promote its virtues and values. Some are sophisticated and some are crude, some are elaborate and others – naive, some have been recently cleaned up while others are falling apart.

What they all have in common is that they tell the story of the city in an unorthodox way which has nothing to do with what your ordinary tour guide says.

Once you've explored for yourselves you will come to the realisation that beauty, indeed, is in the details.
