When constructed in 1904, the building was simply called the “National Theatre” in Sofia. The first play performed, happened to be Ivan Vazov’s “The Outcasts” and later on the theatre was named after this Bulgarian artist. The neoclassical style of architecture is one of my favourites and there in the heart of Sofia, it seemed to fit perfectly.
Some images are captured like magic – quickly and without hesitation. However, that was not the case with my photo shooting of the White Tower and the National Theater in Thessaloniki. So, I was walking up and down, trying to capture the perfect composition at the best light, which may have looked funny for an outside eye. Finally, during the blue hour, I took a photo that satisfied me – with the city lights giving this violet shade around Thessaloniki White Tower.
The Odeon of Herodes Atticusis among the best examples of Antique architecture. Its construction works were finalized in 161 AD. The ancient theatre was renovated in 1950, in order to be preserved for the future and to serve as a very special venue of cultural events. This ancient theatre in Athens has been actively used as an amphitheater on which stage many world-known musicians, singers and opera stars have performed.
