In August 2024, we invite your children to an unforgettable summer adventure – an immersion in the magic of the Spanish language and culture, right in the heart of Sofia. Regardless of their previous knowledge of Spanish, they will enjoy unique language learning combined with dynamic games in a park setting and afternoon creative workshops.

Each activity is carefully selected to give participants the opportunity to have fun and feel comfortable communicating in Spanish, while developing their creative thinking and teamwork skills. The goal of the program is to awaken children’s curiosity about the Spanish language and culture by bringing them as close as possible to a natural language environment.

Hablamos español offers full language immersion with a different theme each week.

Outdoor games: time spent outdoors includes various rhythmic and musical games specifically selected and combined with the week’s language theme to facilitate the natural and spontaneous acquisition of new knowledge.

Picnic in the park: free outdoor play, picnic, and teamwork on the weekly project.

Creative workshops: Self-Portrait with Joan Miró, The Colors of the Mediterranean, The Visual Poetry of Letters, Urban Comics, and more. Developed for the project Art for Children from Spain, these workshops are created in partnership with and using materials from the Plom Gallery (Barcelona), the Joan Brossa Foundation (Barcelona), and the Joan Miró Foundation (Barcelona). Their aim is to bring the children in Sofia closer to the art and authentic creative practices of children in Barcelona, Spain. Original works and reproductions by the artists the children will work with will be exhibited in the Arthur Gallery, and every Thursday the children will arrange their own mini-exhibition to show their parents. * The afternoon sessions will be conducted in Bulgarian, introducing Spanish vocabulary

Culturadas pop-up: the project

“Creativity is the new currency.”

According to the World Economic Forum creative thinking will be third on the list of the most important skills needed to survive and thrive in the fourth industrial revolution.

 The Culturadas pop-up project’s mission is to:

establish a deep connection between children and art;

inspire kids and encourage children’s creativity;

create dialogue about the place of art in our life;

provide strong educational value


Culturadas pop up stops in different places. At each stop it adapts its format and content depending on the size of the space and the purpose of the collaboration at hand, however, each time it has the same goal: to familiarize children with art and with great world artists; to stimulate children’s imaginations; to encourage children’s creativity by expanding their knowledge and improving their self-esteem.

I’ve had a lot of fun to myself these days since the thought occurred to me that even I have something in common with Nicole Kidman. Apart from a man in my past who fancied her in his dreams and me in reality, the other thing we have in common is that we’ve both stood in front of Stasy Kara’s camera and microphone. And what is it that connects me and Stasy? Now that I come to think of it, nothing but fun and memorable moments. Continue Reading


Marta: a mother from Spain in Bulgaria

Mama española en Bulgaria is a blog which is a pleasure to follow. The girl behind it is a mother of two children from Spain who shares her impressions of our country, often comparing them to how things are in Barcelona. Despite being written in the Spanish language, the blog is gathering more and more popularity in Bulgaria too, which proves to be something strange and unexpected for its author. The probable cause of this is the fun opportunity which she gives us to see a side-on view of ourselves and to laugh out loud about stuff from our everyday lives which we’re so used to that it doesn’t even occur to us how strange these things might seem to someone on the outside. Apart from that, Marta often writes about things she likes really very much in Bulgaria and which made her stay here. So, who exactly is this Marta?

Nicolas: A conversation over a cup of Yerba Mate

I got to know Nicolas about a year ago. We worked together really only very briefly. Just long enough for me to realise that he isn’t actually from Spain, but from Argentina, that he has a special attitude towards reading and writing as well as the fact that he really missed Mate tea in Sofia. I invited him to this blog even before it existed and Nicolas entrusted me with total confidence and responded without even knowing what exactly he was getting into. We managed to make the ‘conversation over a Yerba Mate’ happen after dozens of delays and having to hunt down the most authentic possible gourds and straws. In the end we managed to get it done just before he moved to live in Brussels. I think we’ll see him here again, though, because I had the constant feeling that Nico really likes Sofia.

Аssen is one of the most precious things I’ve inherited from the Spanish High School. A truly dear person to me, whom I’ve been proud to call ‘friend’ for 20 years already. We’re linked by one of those undemanding friendships in which communication can come to a standstill for a year or two after which we meet and share our most coveted secrets just as if we’d never parted for a moment. Currently he has established himself in a U.S. university where he teaches Spanish language to students specialising in ‘Latin American Literature and Culture’; he travels, publishes, researches the connections between cinema, literature and sexuality in the countries of the southern hemisphere and he does all this with incredible ease but also with great passion, which he transmits to his students and friends. Here I share a conversation about his journey from the Spanish High School to the bookshops of Buenos Aires and in general about some of the things we love and which connect us. Continue Reading



We quickly discovered a common language with the Brazilian Tadeu Bianconi, a melodic mixture of Spanish and Portuguese. What also connects us is the way in which he sees Latin America. For me what was valuable in his exhibition was that I saw his ‘map of the look’, the look of a person who is from there, of a person who lives, sees, feels and perceives like the people he is photographing.



These pictures were taken in the course of various journeys of mine, some for leisure, some for work. In Guatemala, for example, I was there for work, but the photos I was sent there for were supposed to be in colour. The ones you see here were done in my free time. In Guatemala it was really nice, I really feel like going back there some day. Overall, I’d really like to resume my travels in Latin America. Continue Reading
