National Gallery “Square 500”

Art & Culture

The National Gallery “Kvadrat 500,” inaugurated on May 25, 2015, is a cultural treasure trove housed in 28 halls across four floors. The gallery showcases a curated selection of nearly 2,000 works from the extensive collection of the National Museum Complex, which boasts over 42,000 items.

The origins of the Bulgarian collection can be traced back to the 90s of the 19th century, marking the inception of a rich artistic heritage. The foreign collection, primarily formed in the 1980s, complements the Bulgarian works and contributes to the diverse cultural tapestry presented at the gallery.

Comprising a total of 28 halls, the exhibition is thoughtfully arranged to provide visitors with an immersive experience. Half of the showcased works are crafted by Bulgarian artists, reflecting the nation’s artistic evolution. The remaining half is dedicated to global art, representing diverse regions such as Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. This thoughtful curation offers a comprehensive view of art’s universal language and its varied expressions across continents and cultures.
