The Official website of National Palace of Culture (abbrev. as NDK), in the heart of Sofia, is the largest multifunctional conference and exhibition center in southeastern Europe. It was opened in 1981 in celebration of Bulgaria’s 1300th anniversary. NPC hosts over 300 events per year with 1 million guests. It is decorated with 80 monumental works of art implicated into the halls and foyers. It occupies an area of 123,000 m2 on eight floors and three underground levels. NPC will host the rotating presidency of the council of the EU from July to December 2018.
Sofia’s international airport has good direct flights to most cities in Western-Europe and many major cities around the world.
The airport is a short 15-20 minute car ride from the center of the city, and has good metro and public transport connections.
STAYING IN SOFIA
There are good 5-star and 4-star hotels, with prices ranging from €90 to €125 a night, within walking distance of the conference venue. Most of the hotels are located along the metro line, further shortening the walk from the hotel to the venue. Lodging in 3-star and 2-star hotels within walking distance at price ranges from €20 to €50 a night is also available.
Bulgaria’s capital, Sofia is a capital city on a human scale with a population of 1.3 million. It is in the top 10 best places for business start-ups in the world and is one of Europe’s most affordable cost-of-living capitals. The city’s churches and monuments reflect several thousand years of history, including Thracian, Greek, Roman, and Ottoman. Sofia has been an area of human habitation since at least 7000 BC. Its old east-meets-west atmosphere is still very much evident – onion-domed churches, Ottoman mosques and stubborn Red Army monuments share the skyline with spacious shopping malls and glassy five-star hotels. Vast parks and manicured gardens offer welcome respite from the busy city streets, and the ski slopes and hiking trails of mighty Vitosha Mountain are just a short bus ride from the city center. Home to many of Bulgaria’s finest museums, galleries, restaurants and entertainment venues, Sofia may persuade you to stick around and explore further. Read more.
