Bulgarian Theatre Hearth under Renovation

Date: 26.08.2006

The national theatre Ivan Vazov can be seen in a new "dress" now, after scaffolding was propped up to open thorough renovation works.

The unique facade of the theater building will be reconstructed and refurbished with EUR 100 000 funded under the Beautiful Bulgaria project.

More than 100 constructors, restoring artists and designers will take care that the theatre gleams in new light.

The National Theatre Ivan Vazov was built in 1906-1907, featuring on top Greek mythological figures. The triangular white and gold frieze above the front stairs shows Apollo and the Muses, and twin towers on either side of the building depict the Goddess Nike in a chariot.

The interior was restored in 1929, after a fire had destroyed it six years earlier. The fountain and its reflecting pool in front of the theatre building were built in 1976.
