Ideal participant
Our ideal participant MUST be a real AEGEE freak. To live fast and enjoy the moment. To have endless energy, participate in “group activities", to be curious, addicted to travelling and to have a big imagination in order to jump into a real fairytale!

Event description
AEGEE is ….fun, discussions, debates, people, projects, places, workshops, parties, nights with white spots, European Students’ Forum or what? Is it ME?

Once upon a time somebody in a dark, rainy night told me that “AEGEE is LOVE”. Love in all possible ways. This summer we give you the opportunity to find out yourself what the secret meaning of AEGEE is.

AEGEE-Sofia officially dares to invite you to 8 days of workshops, simulations, games, fun, and…..nights of exploring mystical Balkan culture.
During YOUR fairytale you will explore our capital – Sofia. You will try our national cuisine and find out the difference between Ouzo, Mastika, Yeni Raki, Rakia. You will take part in a one day dream to an amusing island in order to jump directly into the Golden Shore.

Have you ever tried to dance in rhythm 7/8 and on 15/16? Well, we do it! Can you touch the history and get lost in the modernity? Well, here you can! Are you creative enough to convince us that you have the pure AEGEE spirit? Are you ready to experience it together with other 20 people?

We can show you a tempting AEGEE cocktail that mix up the best of our AEGEE nature and our Balkan soul! Prepare for the summer fairytale where everyone can create and live his own AEGEE magic.


Do you “live as you will die tomorrow and learn as you will live forever”? The story goes only for a special person. Is this you?





Sofia:
Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria and the 12th most populated city in the European Union with 1.4 million inhabitants. It is located in Western Bulgaria, at the foot of the Vitosha Mountain, and is the administrative, cultural, economic, educational and party centre of the country. One of the oldest cities in Europe, its history dates back before the 7th century BC. It offers a unique blend of historical and cultural sights and a cosmopolitan atmosphere that can take your breath away.

Plovdiv:
Plovid is the second largest city in the country, located in the south-central part on the banks of the Maritsa river. Its history spans over 6 000 years making it one of the world’s oldest cities. It is often referred to as ‘The city on seven hills” as it was developed on seven hills and offers a variety of sights – you can find a Roman theatre on one hill and a soviet monument on another. In modern times became famous as the “cultural capital” of Bulgaria being the home of many notable artists and hosting a large number of art galleries and cultural institutions.

Burgas:
Burgas is the 4th largest city by population in Bulgaria. It is located in the eastern part of Bulgaria at the Black sea coast. It has the most beautiful sea garden in Bulgaria (a coastal park). With its large port the city is an important economic and tourist center, is also host to the Spirit of Burgas – a music festival becoming one of the hottest open air events in all Europe.

Sunny beach:
The biggest summer resort in Bulgaria with more than 300 hotels and 500 000 beds. There are more than 400 restaurants and numerous live music bars, pubs, nightclubs, discos and cafés. Its development began in 1958 and continues until present days. It reaches Nesebar to the south and St.Vlas to the north.

Nesebar (optional fee)
Existing today as an open-air city-museum the town was founded more than 3 000 years ago as a Thracian settlement. The ancient part of the town was originally situated on an island which was later connected to the mainland by a manmade isthmus. With its abundance of historical buildings the ancient town is enlisted among UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. The city’s remains date mostly from the Hellenistic period, although there is a fortress dating from the Middle Ages, when this was one of the most important Byzantine towns on the west coast of the Black Sea. There are many typical wooden houses built in the 19th century.
