A group of young people from Sofia University’s sociology department has produced a book documenting the stories of 11 pre-1944 houses that are crumbling into ruins, a sad decline from the days when the buildings were homes of some of the Bulgarian capital city’s wealthiest and most influential families.

The book, Portraits of Vanishing Sofia, is intended to provoke discussion about the fate of the buildings, beautiful in their heyday, a glory still apparent in spite of their neglected, peeling facades.

The idea for the book, published by the Iztok –Zapad publishing house, came from photographs published on social network Facebook, which prompted the authors to set about collecting more photographs of buildings in the city dating from between the end of Ottoman rule and the closing stages of World War 2.
