• We're all playing the game

    24 October 2019

    text Violeta Ivanova

    Last November, the first Sofia Game Night caught in its web both gamers and those who had never heard of Dota or escape rooms. How? With dozens of events, from exhibitions to tournaments scattered throughout the city until late in the night. Why? To show the different faces of games and how gamification makes everything else - from education to art to activism - more effective and interesting. And to strengthen the industry in our country, of course. On November 2nd the new edition of the Night continues in the same path with even more events and locations, all visited for free.

    text Violeta Ivanova

    November 10th will be your day for reflection if you save it for Ratio. The full-day forum brings to the Sofia Event Center a three-step science menu, which is served up so we can swallow it easily and then ask for some more. Previous knowledge is required only in English - the lectures will not be translated in Bulgarian. Tickets + info on the speakers and topics can be found at ratio.bg.

  • European Researchers' Night 2019

    19 September 2019

  • To ride or not to ride?

    22 August 2019

    text Violeta Ivanova

    More comfortable than public transport, more eco-friendly than a car and much easier to ride than a bike - what is it? For a year or two, the answer has been all over streets around the world, and more recently in our country. That is why we are catching the topic of electric scooters while it is still warm and (at least here) no one has been seriously injured yet.

    From Buddhism through Hinduism to the languages of Pali, Marathi and Sanskrit the word udaya is translated as a temple, sacred mountain, growth, sunrise. For four years now, however, it means another yoga retreat near Pravets with a rich schedule of practices, workshops and live music that unfolds a mat for the welfare of your spirit from August 14th to August 19th.
  • Tears of Ra

    11 July 2019

    text Kristina Yordanova

    According to Egyptian mythology, when god Ra cried over the desert, the bees appeared. Today, we owe to them 70% of the food on our table, but in return we do not give them the only thing they want - normal climate and no one to mess with them.

  • Fresh air and two wheels

    20 June 2019

    If you want to feel the wind not of Tsarigradsko, but of the mountain, here is your reason: bicycle tour Srednogorie on July 6th. The distance is 50km from Gorna Malina to Pirdop, which we do without a race - the organizers from Begach mostly want to prove that everyone can bike as much. However you've got a few weeks to train before registering for 15 leva - so check out some beginners workouts and put it on your lists for summer to-dos.
  • FuckUp Nights Sofia

    13 June 2019

    FuckUp Nights is an event that invites people with different experiences to tell about their biggest failures. What do you mean why? Mistakes are part of life, and how you deal with them, what you learn, and how you get stuck out of the dust are far more important than trying to avoid or cover them.
  • Ratio Forum

    13 June 2019

    Beyond the regular bar meetings, where we talk about science in popular language, twice a year, Ratio are organizing a big event for hundreds of inquisitive heads.
  • And yet she will run

    6 June 2019

    In sport even a second of difference is important. And how about a lead of a few centuries? The only way to overcome it is with a serious battle for rights, as proven by the struggle of women who have been allowed to run in marathons for only about 50 years. A few days before Bioderma's Women Run on June 22nd, it's worth remembering the story of the movement that started in 1896 with the first woman who was refused to register at the Olympics.
  • On the other side of the bar: Nikolay Neykov

    16 May 2019

    Four friends enter a bar ... Instead of a hilarious joke, what comes next is the mistake we most often make when ordering a cocktail: "That you do it rarely and at the wrong places", says Nicky Neykov - a top bartender who once competed for World Class Bartender of the Year and is now a World Class brand ambassador that prepares us for the upcoming World Class Cocktail Month.
  • Days of pride

    16 May 2019

    "Do not give power to hatred, give power to love." With this message on June 8, the Sofia Pride Parade passes through the city, but a lot of other events are happening around it. They put out documentary films with strong stories, highlight the political meaning of the movement, or invite us to an exhibition and sports field to see the different faces of the issue - see more on the Facebook event page.

    14 March 2019

    "I'm not interested in practicing yoga. I want to be yoga" is written on one of the walls of the new 2Health Hub. Today we come in to see this place's recipe for being yoga - our guide is Iveta Filipova, herself a yoga instructor, yoga app developer and holistic coach. She shows us the place, inspired by Japanese zen, and talkes us through the program (which is at 2healthub.com).
