With the opening of a permanent cultural complex in one of the most beautiful and prestigious buildings in Sofia, the Foundation offers new opportunities to expand and enrich our learning processes.

We think culture is deeply useful and necessary, as well as attractive and engaging. It is one of the oldest and at the same time most modern languages and the best weapon for the healthy and conscious growth of our community.
