Bulgaria's capital Sofia will have a living Christmas tree for the first time and will light it up on Thursday, the local administration says.
Unlike previous years, the tree is not located in front of the Sofia Municipality building, near the Sofia Court House.
It was planted in the park in front of the National Palace of Culture (NDK) as the area was being refurbished over the past few years.
Christmas lights on the tree will be turned on at 19:00 local time (EET) on Thursday.
Starting 17:00, a series of concerts and musical performances will take place on a stage put up next to the tree.
A vintage tram will also be part of the festivities, using going back and forth along the tracks between Vazrazhdane Square, Hristo Botev Blvd, Pette Kyosheta ("The Five Corners", not far from NDK), the NDK itself, and Ivan Vazov market.
