The winners of the European Heritage/Europa Nostra Awards 2022 were awarded at a ceremony in Prague, and one of the five holders of the Europa Nostra Grand Prix is the Bulgarian initiative Rivers of Sofia.

The Rivers of Sofia project won in the Citizens Engagement and Awareness-raising category. “By means of pop-up architectural interventions and cultural and educational programming, Rivers of Sofia made these spaces (the river beds – editorial note) accessible to the public for the first time in 80 years and increased their visibility as urban heritage,” the motives read.

The award ceremony marked the high point in the European Cultural Heritage Summit 2022 in Prague from 25 to 27 September. The winners were selected out of 30 nominations from 18 countries.
