The Foundation “Center for Entrepreneurship and Executive Development – Bulgaria” (CEED Bulgaria) launched the project “Virtual walk through the unknown Sofia – a digital adventure”, implemented with the financial support of the Municipality of Sofia – Program “Europe” 2023.
The overall goal of the project proposal is aimed at supporting innovative solutions for building a sustainable partnership between civil society structures, local government bodies and the tourism industry. The project promotes the innovative and digital presentation of the capital’s historical and cultural attractions, as well as the creation of digital products presenting interesting lesser-known tourist sites. In order to achieve satisfying results, innovative methods will be used that arouse the interest of a younger audience.
The implementation of the project is expected to supplement, upgrade and ensure sustainable development of the results achieved as a result of the already implemented previous projects “Virtual tour – Unknown Sofia” and “Sofia – virtually more and more known”, implemented with the financial support of the Metropolitan Municipality, respectively under the “Europe 2021” Program and under the “Europe 2022” Program.
During the project implementation period (July – October 2023), the following activities are planned:
- Improvement and upgrade of website (https://unknown-sofia.com/) and mobile application “Unknown Sofia”, incl. adding audio dubbing in a foreign language, expanding routes, updating the digital calendar of events.
- Creation of innovative products in order to popularize the little-known objects in the capital, such as a memory card (USB card) with interactive content and a digital puzzle in the form of a collage with photos of selected objects.
- Publicity and awareness activities in order to spread the achieved results.
- Organizing and holding a closing event at the end of the project implementation.
