National Palace of Culture
1414 Sofia, “Bulgaria” № 1 Square, Bulgaria

The National Palace of Culture – Congress Centre Sofia (NDK) is the largest and the most impressive multifunctional complex in South-Eastern Europe perfectly equipped for realizing prestigious events of the whole range of cultural and social-economic life. It is a member of two of the most prestigious international associations in the field of congress business – ICCA and AIPC, and in 2005, it has been distinguished by The World’s Best Congress Centre Award.

Incorporating facilities and excellent technical equipment, NDK is still the most preferable place to carry out professional fairs of a variety of branches:
• NPC is situated in the capital’s centre, which provides easy access and effective communications.
• 15000 sq. m of lobbies and halls lay on 11 levels, on which 6000 sq. m can be built up of non-standard exhibition areas – a real challenge to the design teams.
• There are comfortable halls to hold parallel events: displays, press conferences, symposia, cocktails, etc.
• NPC has prestigious partners like Bery Group Bulgaria and EBBS events, on which stable relations are built up in organizing and carrying out fairs.

The National Palace of Culture is a multifunctional complex, a contemporary castle synthesis of modern architecture and plastic arts. The magnificent spaces are spiritualized by more than hundreds of the monumental painting, sculpture, wood-carving, Gobelin, metal plastic, and other art genres.
