Boris Georgiev City Art Gallery, Varna

The Boris Georgiev City Art Gallery is a municipal gallery that has occupied the building at 1 Lyuben Karavelov Street since 1944. The building itself was built in 1885 and originally accommodated a high school for boys. It was renamed the Boris Georgiev City Art Gallery in 1999 in honour of the Varna-born artist. Inside you'll see a large collection of Bulgarian art from the early 20th Century onwards, most notably the principal collection of Georgiev's works. Among other Bulgarian artists presented here are Vladimir Dimitrov, Ivan Milev, Sirak Skitnik, Zlatyu Boyadzhiev and Tsanko Lavrenov. In total, the gallery has an area of 1,000 square metres spread over eight exhibition halls. The gallery's third floor regularly hosts concerts, plays and readings.
