We will gather at Statue of Sofia, where we will start our journey through the history of this subculture – globally but also what are the cultural roots of Bulgaria’s graffiti scene. While exploring the artsy and a bit hidden central part of Sofia, you will learn about the styles of graffiti, where is the difference to street art and who are the most influential arists on the streets. During the walk you will have a chance to feel the unique vibe of Sofia while trying to escape from the big boulevards. Along the way we will see graffiti walls, murals, street art, created by Bulgarian and International artists and learn about the process and stories behind each piece. Who knows, we might even get lucky and catch an artist at work..... or you will start your street art career.
My name is Tsvetan and as the co-founder of Sofia Graffiti Tour, I have been passionate about the graffiti, street and urban art culture for over 15 years now. This energy was transformed into street art and graffiti tour. I am not alone in this adventure. Together with my team, we have formed a group of artists and city guides. Over three years we are sharing with locals and travelers the hidden and colorful world of graffiti and street art of Sofia. We are thrilled to give our guests a taste of the creative side of Sofia that doesn't always get noticed. I will be your main contact through the booking process. The tour itself will be led either by me a guide from our team. We are all locals, experienced and passionate about graffiti and street art.
