The project “Sofia Mosaic Tour” of the Balkan Heritage Foundation presents one of newest cultural tours in the capital. It features 12 selected mosaics representative of both ancient and contemporary mosaic art in Sofia.

The majority of the ancient mosaics from Serdica decorated private and public buildings dated between the 3rd and 6th centuries. They were discovered during construction works in the 20th and 21st centuries. Today they are either preserved in situ or displayed as part of museum exhibitions.

The 20th century mosaics in Sofia reflect both the tendencies in modern Bulgarian art for the decoration of religious and public buildings before 1944, as well as those that shaped public spaces in the 1970s and 1980s.

“Sofia Mosaic Tour” is a project of the Balkan Heritage Foundation supported by Sofia Municipality as part of the “Culture” – 2022-2023 program, section for “Cultural Heritage and Socialization”.
