On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Polish Institute in Sofia, an exhibition of 43 posters, promoting events of the Institute’s programme from the last decade, was presented.

It is the work of the artists with whom the Institute has worked in recent years: Iliana Pertsanska, Ivan Popov, Elena Krasteva and Rositsa Raleva. The exhibition opened on the 14th of November 2019, but can be viewed in Sofia until the 15th of January 2020.

In 2019, the Polish Institute in Sofia celebrated 70 years of activity in Bulgaria. It is one of the oldest Polish institutes in the world. After London, Budapest and Bucharest, Sofia is the fourth city in which the Polish Institute has been operating continuously for 70 years already. The repeated change of its address did not change the fact that it has always been a meeting point for the Polish and Bulgarian intelligence. Some may remember the Polish Information and Cultural Center and its store. Books, press, records, jewelry, ceramics, posters and crafts could be purchased there. According to many Bulgarian intellectuals, the Polish Institute was a "window to the world".

During  the 20th  and 21st century it represents a cultural center with a wonderful gallery and chamber hall, a place for literary, musical and film meetings, which invariably works for the dialogue between our societies.

The material was provided by the Polish Institute in Sofia.
