Heritage protection

The network of sites and territories under heritage protection in Sofia Municipality is dense and multilayered. Sofproect monitors the dynamic development of the database for this concentration of sites, obtained from the National Institute for Cultural Monuments, in order to improve the information base for the needs of the Urban Masterplan of Sofia Municipality. A major part of the work focuses on active communication with institutions and stakeholders with expertise (administration, museums, universities and NGOs). Dialogue and interaction are initiated in order to identify the right tools for improving the implementation of development policies and preserving the objects part of the cultural heritage. Furthermore, as part of the work Sofproect has created a map of ceramic and granite pavements.

The aim of the enterprise is to improve the mechanisms for protection and management of the network of heritage sites, inseparably integrated in the modern developing territory, as well as to improve the awareness of the citizens about the wealth of cultural objects in Sofia Municipality.
