Many of my friends who come to Bulgaria adore Sofia. That's why I wanted to do something to make the beauty of our city be seen all over the world, says the world-famous Bulgarian violinist Vasko Vassilev about the desire that provoked him to realize his new project.

Among the locations shot in the short videos are emblematic places such as Vitosha Mountain, Ivan Vazov National Theatre, Lion’s Bridge, St. Nedelya Cathedral, St. George's Rotunda, St. Joseph's Catholic Cathedral, the National Palace of Culture, the building of the Regional History Museum in Sofia.

The project is implemented with the assistance of Sofia Municipality.

The first video, which combines panoramas from Sofia with the music of Franz Schubert, is now available on the musician's official video channel.
