Transportation from Conference venue to the location of the Grand Reception is not organized, therefore please pay attention to the directions below.


National Palace of Culture is within walking distance from Sofia University – it takes approximately 25 minutes to reach it (1,9 km) along the ‘‘Vasil Levski‘‘ boulevard. The boulevard starts right next to the Sofia University and ends at the large square / park where National Palace of Culture is located. After that, it is necessary to go to the opposite side of the Palace, where entrance is located.

If you would like to walk to the venue with our coordinators guiding you, the groups will be departing from the front entrance of Sofia University at 18:45 and 19:00.



Alternative option is to take a subway – from Sofia University – St. Kliment Ohridski metro station (just across the street from the conference venue) go only to next station, Serdika (the intersection between blue and red line). Here, it is necessary to switch to Blue line M2 going from Serdika II (changing station) in the direction ‘‘Vitosha‘‘ and exit at next station NDK (National Palace of Culture).



Afterwards, walk from the subway station NDK to the National Palace of Culture (approx. 500 metres).
