8 x 21 x 10 cm – these are the exact measurements of each and every of the small golden yellow blocks – the most recognizable and characteristic symbol of Sofia in our time. For more than a century, the yellow pavement has been an emblematic point in the capital’s landscape. It is a symbol of the administrative, historical and cultural heart of the city and a witness of civil protests, military parades, aerial bombardment and sieges. Its history is surrounded by many urban myths and legends, which reinforce its status as an informal cultural monument with a multitude of symbolism. “Born on the yellow pavement” is an epitome for a person from the elite, an aristocrat, someone with power, or at least, having access to class, luxury and riches.
