Bulgaria's cultural memory in danger

The Bulgaria building complex in central Sofia, which houses an art nouveau hotel and a concert hall, is to be demolished to make way for a shopping centre. Ivan Stanishev comments: "The Bulgaria's hotel and concert hall are the best works ever produced by the Belkovsky-Dantshov architect duo. They came up with a uniquely functional and spacious solution. The hotel, with all its elements and details, was built during the golden age of architecture that followed the liberation from the Turks. But there's an even more important aspect: the Bulgaria is Sofia's cultural memory and the symbol of an era. It would be absurd to give up this European memory now that Bulgaria has once again become part of Europe."
