The Contemporary Mosaics of Sofia

Mosaics have a unique status in modern Bulgarian art as a monumental art form. It is not one of the more typical forms of art in Bulgaria either before or after Bulgaria’s Liberation from Ottoman rule in 1878. Its development over the course of modern Bulgarian history varies considerably by historical period.

The major periods for the development of mosaics in Bulgaria are from 1878 to 1944, 1944 to 1989, and 1989 to present day.
