From February 11th to 14th 2017 the Vienna days in Sofia took place. The focus was on topics like urban preservation, museum management and mobility.
Cultural emphasis was laid on the subject world heritage, therefore the Viennese ball in the Bulgarian capital was the inofficial kick-off event. The official part was opened by the mayor of Sofia Jordanka Fandakova and the chairman of the Viennese municipal council Thomas Reindl.
Positive publicity was ensured with the biggest Manner heart which provided for the proper Viennese flair – about 10.000 Manner Neapolitan wafers were distributed among the citizens. Moreover the vineyard Cobenzl gave a deep insight into the Viennese culture of wine-growing and "Heurige" (an Austrian establishment where wine from the latest harvest is served).
