The 25 Years Free Bulgaria campaign, marking the quarter-century since the country’s freedom from communism, is to hold an exhibition of posters entitled ’89 Then and Now on Lovers Bridge near the National Palace of Culture in Sofia, opening on October 18 at 1pm.

The exhibition will show the 25 best entries in a national poster contest on the theme of the campaign. The contest was held by the National Art Academy in September.
