Follow the Soloveiko Songbird map to discover the songs and stories of Ukraine. The Soloveiko Songbird – nightingale in English – is the national bird of Ukraine and a symbol of song and happiness. 12 Soloveiko from different Ukrainian regions have travelled to Liverpool, bringing their songs and stories to EuroFestival.
The artists have produced 12 giant illuminated Soloveiko sculptures and an imaginative animation that brings the Soloveiko to life allowing the viewer to watch the birds travel throughout Ukraine, showing the country’s unique beauty, mythology and cities.
*Suitable for all ages.
As this is taking place in outdoor spaces, there are no toilet facilities and all areas that the birds are placed on are level and wheelchair accessible
