Esta es la campana que España envío a Bulgaria para el monumento «Parque internacional de los niños del mundo». Un proyecto creado durante la Bulgaria Socialista en 1979, año internacional del niño por las Naciones Unidas. Hay campanas de todo el mundo (138 en total), incluso de países que ya ni existen como URSS, Checoslovaquia o la Republica Democrática Alemana. El monumento sigue el estilo de «arquitectura brutalista», que significa hagamos cosas bonitas con hormigonaco der bueno. La campana de España comparada con la del resto tiene una humildad .... Yo creo que la hicieron en Churriana. #kambanite #parque #campana #monumento #hormigonaco #sofia #Bulgaria #balcanes

Мил спомен от комунистическото ни минало - Асамблея "Знаме на мира"! Създадена преди 40 години от жената, която е заявила мястото на България на картата на световната култура с първото най-мащабно събитие за деца от цял свят - Людмила Живкова или просто поредния монумент, който напомня, че "Народ, който не подчита миналото - няма бъдеще!".... #kambanite #kambanitemonument #sofia #bulgaria

My last day in Sofia started off on a sweet-n-sombre note as I rang the peace bell at one of the most interesting monuments I've ever visited. The Kambanite (meaning bell in Bulgarian) Park on the outskirts of Sofia is a unique place that has bells donated by every country in the world. And to reaffirm one's belief in world peace, all one has to do is ring the bell that corresponds to their country. And so I did just that with the India bell, ever mindful that all the world truly needs now is peace. A nice immersive experience was next at the Museum of Sofia's History with my personal docent, Perla who took me around the compact and very informative museum that used to be a bath house in Ottoman times. Stella next whisked me off on her one-of-a-kind graffiti tour where I saw some stunning murals by Bulgarian street artists like Naimo and Mouse. The city is filled with wonderful street art that's now even specially commissioned by the city like the current project of beautifying electric boxes. Ended the day wandering around the pedestrian only Vitosha Blvd. and checked out the very unique 'kneeling' booze shops where one has to kneel in order to make a purchase from the basement level shops that sprung up early last century as a way to avoid paying a higher tax that was levied to street level shops. Ended the day with some sushi and a cooling Aperol Spritz at a cute al fresco bistro on the boulevard as today was a warm 22C. Bye and thank you Bulgaria for a wonderful time and my overweight 'suitcase of memories'... #bulgariatourism #sofia #bulgaria #raulontheprowl #travelwriterlife #foodwriterlife #raulinbulgaria #easterneurope #travel #exoticdestinations #culture #food #museums #peace #peacemonument #kambanite #graffiti #streetart #naimo #aperolspritz #bell

Only had one real day in Sofia, which is nowhere near enough as this city is vast. We tried to pack in as much lovely concrete as possible - the bells in Kambanite park (The British bell was rubbish, the Polish one was 💯), the Museum of Soviet Art and hit the Monument to the Soviet Army just as the sun was setting. #Sofia #Bulgaria #Brutalism #Concrete #SovietArt #Kambanite

A small walk in Sofia. It turned out that my boyfriend who is from here has never heard about this place. So interesting how sometimes we foreigners know or seen more than locals. #sofia #bulgaria #bells #winter #kambanite
