Competition for a new pedestrian bridge in South Park

Sofia Municipality – Department of Architecture and Urban Planning is announcing an open international competition under the Public Procurement Act for a conceptual design of a new pedestrian bridge over Byala Cherkva Street.


The conceptual design should offer a spatial solution for a new pedestrian link, which would form a natural connection between the two separate parts of South Park. The new connection will be at a different level to road traffic, facilitating the expansion of pedestrian and cyclist flows in the area, improving the accessability of green spaces for local residents and visitors alike. The construction of the new bridge and the development of the adjacent area will complete the merger of the three zones: South Park – first part (the area around the National Palace of Culture), South Park – second part and South Park – third part into one continuous and large-scale urban recreation space.

The necessary documents for participation can be viewed and downloaded in both Bulgarian and English from the Buyer’s Profile section of Sofia Municipality in the Centralized Electronic Procurement Information System for Electronic Public Procurement (CAIS EOP), as well as from the dedicated website of the contest –


The jury will award three main prizes – BGN 20,000; BGN 15,000 and BGN 10,000.


The deadline for submission of competition entries is 5:30 PM on September 29th, 2022 at the office of the Department of Architecture and Urban Planning – Sofia, 5 Serdika Str. The winners will be announced on October 7th, 2022.
