On the 1st of November, at the Union of Architects in Bulgaria in Sofia, the exhibition of Julia Krasovska "A Walk in the Past" was opened.

The main part of it is devoted to the works of the Ukrainian Mykhailo Parashchuk. He is a professor and sculptor with European recognition, a unique personality both in the history of Bulgaria and in the history of Ukraine.

Mykhailo Parashchuk arrived in Bulgaria in 1921, worked here for a long time and created a number of architectural masterpieces that are admirable today. Thanks to his efforts, in the first half of the twentieth century Sofia became a true European capital. He created the architectural sculpture and decoration of such important public buildings as the Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski ", the National Library "St. Cyril and St. Methodius", the "Ivan Vazov" National Theater, the National Assembly and the Court of Justice. He did the same for sites around the country.

The exhibition of  the Ukrainian Yulia Krasovska contains drawings of buildings decorated by Parashchuk in the period 1950 - 1960, as well as photographs of his sculptures made for them.

There are also paintings by the artist depicting iconic buildings in Burgas - the city where she lives. They were built at the beginning of the last century under the designs of the Italian architect Ricardo Toscani. Along with the watercolor restoration of their ancient look, Yulia Krasovska offers the audience contemporary photographs taken from the same angle. This way everyone can see and compare how the city has changed over time.

The material was provided by the Embassy of Ukraine in the Republic of Bulgaria.
