Follow the Soloveiko Songbird map to discover the songs 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. 

Each Soloveiko has been placed in a unique location around the city, and visitors are invited to listen as they share the stories and songs of their homeland. To accompany the beautiful Soloveiko Songbirds, a four minute 3D animation will bring the nightingales to life and tell their stories.

See the map on the Visit Liverpool website here.

Floating Earth

Floating Earth is breathtakingly set against the dock’s historic colonnades, creating magical moments at sunrise and sunset. The piece was also accompanied with a soundscape by BAFTA-winning composer, Dan Jones that further enhances the experience. 

Floating Earth can be viewed from Royal Albert Dock’s inner quay, where visitors can view the installation daily with the soundscape from 12pm-10.30pm for free, although the piece will be illuminated 24 hours a day. 

Peace & Love Mural

Well-known local artist, Paul Curtis has been commissioned by the University of Liverpool to create a new work that celebrates the Eurovision Song Contest and calls for peace in Ukraine.

As an alumnus of the University, he has created a mural that depicts global unity and peace, in the lead up to Eurovision which is being hosted in Liverpool on behalf of Ukraine. 

The painting is located on the Guild Walk, close to the Sports Centre and the Guild of Students on Brownlow Hill and forms part of a wider of programme of events being presented by the University.
