Guests can not only see with their own eyes what the famous mythical monsters looked like, but also appreciate their gigantic size – the height of the figures varies from two to eight meters.

The magic park will be open every day (Monday to Sunday) from 10:00 to 20:00. The exhibition will remain in the city until March 15, 2021.

The exhibition is interactive and animated – all dragons growl, move and emit specific “dragon” sounds. At the same time, each of them has its own voice, behavior and even character. This is the first exhibition of its kind of animated dragons ever presented in Bulgaria.

The overall concept of the attraction, as well as the choice of exhibits and the layout of the theme park is the work of Coco Agency, the Bulgarian company, which in the last 5 years presents a number of interactive and educational exhibitions for children, students and curious adults.

Millions of people around the world have already visited the attraction, but for Sofia this kind of fantasy park is a completely new form of entertainment. For the past two years, the exhibition has visited Israel, Saudi Arabia, Poland and Ukraine.

In the Living Dragons Wintertale you can meet the mysterious and good-natured dragons of Japan, the festive dragons from China and the fearsome dragons from Eastern and Western European traditions.

All figures and information panels provide visitors with a detailed explanation of how myths and legends about these creatures originated in different cultures around the world and why dragons are so popular.

In the theme park, children will be able to “ride” several of the exhibits, jump on a trampoline or listen to curious stories about dragons, “told” by the magic trees.

It is important to note that the park operates in accordance with all epidemiological regulations, including the requirements for social distancing. As the number of people who can see the exhibition at the same time is limited, visitors have the feeling that they have really traveled to a fairytale world.

Tickets are sold on the spot at prices of BGN 12 for children (from 2 to 18 years old) and BGN 15 for adults. The organizers have also provided an opportunity to purchase a family ticket. Children under 2 enter for free.

Given the epidemiological measures in the country, the organizers warn that the number of visitors admitted at the same time will be limited.
