The official opening of the event is on October 21 (Monday) at 17h00 at the Outdoor Gallery in the Crystal Garden. The exhibition is organized under the National Scholarly Program 'Cultural historical heritage, national memory and social development', funded by the Ministry of Education and Science.

The exhibition is part of the celebrations marking two major anniversaries of fundamental importance for the Bulgarian statehood and culture - the 140th anniversary of the proclamation of Sofia as the capital of Bulgaria and the 150th anniversary of the founding of BAS.

The exhibition will focus on the city of Sofia in the past, represented on postcards from the end of the 19th century and the following decades. The emblematic places, events and spaces that shape the appearance of the Bulgarian capital in the course of the new history of Bulgaria will be presented. The exhibition also represents urban spaces in other Balkan capitals and smaller Balkan cities, their atmosphere, the transformation of their appearance, and the incorporation of ancient and medieval architectural heritage into the urban environment of contemporary settlements.
