If you need a space to explore and discover yourself, enjoying mountain atmosphere and village lifestyle; if you need to pamper yourself to think or create without being bothered by anyone, to escape for a while from your daily routine; if you wish to discover and enjoy the natural ambiance and village quietness to hatch your creative idea, to write, to create or to just have a "meeting with yourself", then the Kamenov House for Creative Thinking, located in the village of Zverino, 70 km from Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, is the real thing for you. It provides a great place to think, write, create and live in an authentic environment, and is intended for creative people, writers, artists, PhD students, academics on sabbatical and small-size creative teams. The House Launch Day will be July 15, 2018. E-mail:
