Points and Areas of Interest

Welcome to "Go Local Online benefits". In my University years, I was a certified tourist guide and this edition is a continuation of my passion for travel. It has 130 posts (updated at the end of 2017), the first being back in 2014 as part of a Case Study in team collaboration. In 2018 I'll continue adding best practices to "Go Local Online Benefits" by exploring digital products, tools and features mainly on Google Maps but not limited to that.

Some evidence just needs experience, like when we see points of interest on Google maps, we learn how the same approach may apply to adding Google maps and Google My Business for our purposes too. No doubt we learn by example, observing the organisation of the bees ( see featured image)!

Our experience to get fast information teaches us about the dynamics of the world today, when a number of turbulent changes happen not even daily, but every hour. The most precious asset becomes our time and in this aspect digital devices are driving us fast to the information we need.

Being part of +Go Local Online  ( Free download of Case Study Local Businesses On Google Maps http://ninatrankova.com/downloads/) team, I have chosen to evidence examples of implementing Google Maps from the non-profit organisations, namely churches, by adding the churches in my neighbourhood to Google Maps

The church Authorities have received the map and it will potentially become part of the official page of the Institution. These churches and a number more in reconstruction are 130 years old. Following to the initiative of Father Serafim Yanev, The Orthodox Mitropolia and with the help of EU funding, the buildings have been completely renovated and now young people and tourists start visiting the places.

What did I learn from putting Old Churches on Google maps:

- When you operate on mobile, you get fast approval and mail by the team of Google maps;
- You can upload useful information, like a contact phone, when is the church open, photos from inside and outside, add board messages from the Church’s authorities;
- Visitors add the link to the address on their GPS system and easily find the road;
- You can leave a review like for any other place on Google maps;
- Potentially people can join a Community through their Google plus personal profiles and make the process of organizing events and responsibilities a fast and easy;
- Disabled and ill people can potentially communicate on Google hangouts with the priest and the Church community. On his first hangout, The Pope speaks about building bridges through digital communication.
- Depending upon the policy of the institution the Google plus page may turn into the digital communication tool for the Church and their public.

Google ecosystem gives equal tools to individuals, businesses and institutions. In this aspect when experts are willing to demonstrate the implementation of digital technology, and precisely  Google tools, they may approach non-government organisations and implement good practice for our neighboorhood.

Nencho Palaveev' House

This house museum has been added to Google Maps and I'm proud to recap here in case you want to read the story and walk the steps of an extraordinary talented entrepreneur who lived at the beginning of the 19th century.

The Bronze House Shines with Smiles
A sculpture project in Sofia, mastered by Plamen Dejanoff for 12 years

That's how I saw The Bronze House during my walk in the Еuropean Night of Scientists ( http://nauka.bg/night/eng/): a golden lace, vivid from the happy voices around it!

In my personal option, there isn't anything better one can wish for a public space which still holds the burden of the total control system ( for 50 years there was a mausoleum standing on the same place, for ref. read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgi_Dimitrov_Mausoleum) than shifting the energy to a symbol of fulfilling freedom and prosperity.

Here's "Kunsthalle Wien"'s article and interview:
"When Le Corbusier visited Bulgaria in 1911 as part of his travel to the Orient, he was enthusiastic about the simple, cubic, richly decorated wooden houses in villages like Arbanasi. Plamen Dejanoff has been working for a long time on this form of construction and its influence on international modernity. For over twelve years, he has worked on a public sculpture project: The Bronze House, which is now being erected on the central Alexander Battenberg Square in the Bulgarian capital Sofia. The modular construction of more than a thousand elements in cast bronze refers to traditional Bulgarian architecture but translates the tradition of wooden paneling and latticework into sculptural abstraction in public space. The eleven-meter-high work is conceived as a work of art in the center of the city, but also as an invitation to the public to appropriate it, to become an actor, and to establish a relationship with the place. The Alexander Battenberg Square has a central position in Bulgarian history, from the time after the Liberation to the present day.

Organized by Kunsthalle Wien, a series of talks and events will take place in Vienna and Sofia in the course of the year. This series will address The Bronze House and related questions such as: the impact of art in public space on its social environment, and how history and cultural memory are addressed by art.

The Bronze House will remain in Sofia until the end of the year. A publication planned for 2019 will document the project and the associated events." end of the quote

Sofia's Capital City Holiday
Faith Hope Love

Today is the city's holiday. If you are downtown, here's my recommended list to check on Google Maps.

I'm joining a special event at Beinsa Douno's center to learn about knowledge. Later on, I'll attend the interesting topical exhibition in Sofia City Regional Museum:

"Architect Adolf Collar - the first city architect of Sofia - 140 years"
https://cs.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/V%C3%A1clav_Kol%C3%A1%C5%99_(architekt)

Regional History Museum - Sofia
1 Banski Sq, 1000 Sofia Center, Sofia
02 985 4455

https://goo.gl/maps/MvY8QfVvimx

Note: I've created this recommendation by using my virtual and offline local guide skills, lifetime knowledge, Google maps public information and functionality. I hope this will give Sofia City virtual visitors the best experience. Feedback is welcome, just click 'like' when you find my reviews on Google Maps useful and helpful
