The FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS illuminates the European Capital of Culture 2019
In the center of Plovdiv – one of the oldest cities in Europe and European Capital of Culture 2019 – the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS took place for the first time on 9th May, the Europe Day.
“The city of seven hills”, what the second-largest Bulgarian city of the country is called, was selected as the Bulgarian host of the European Capital of Culture 2019, alongside the Italian city of Matera.
For this reason, the celebration of the Day of Europe was organized there for the first time, as part of its cultural program during the year.
The citizens and guests of the city were able to enjoy the transformation of its well-known facades from the end of the 19th and the beginning of 20th century. On the 9th and 10th of May, they were turned into a gallery under the stars with help of a spectacular 3D projection mapping show and 7 light art installations.
Festival period: 9th – 10th May 2019
