Czech Cultural Center

Art & Culture

The Czech Center in Sofia is dedicated to fostering a dialogue with the public, showcasing the Czech Republic’s cultural richness across various fields, including culture, science, education, trade, and tourism. Established in 1949 as the Czechoslovak work – Orbis, it’s the oldest Czech center abroad and the oldest foreign cultural institution in Bulgaria.

Following its renovation in 1996-1998, the center transformed its spaces to better suit its objectives. The ground floor now houses the Cafe Gallery Prague, an appealing exhibition space. Additionally, the Purple Hall, a multi-purpose area, hosts concerts, film screenings, literary readings, and various events. Popular series like “Orange Thursdays” highlight Czech jazz and alternative music, featuring Bulgarian and European musicians. The film series “You, They on Wednesday” showcases Czech documentaries and foreign films, while “Young Zone” on Mondays supports budding performers.

To keep visitors updated, the center releases a monthly program in both print and electronic formats, informing about the diverse array of events curated at the Czech Cultural Center.
