Summary/Abstract: This paper aims to trace the link between mobility and the construction of European citizenship. Considering the initial fact that the concept of mobility is deeply rooted in the idea of the European Union, and based on empirical material, the text analyses the construction of a European identity among mobile citizens who have chosen to live in Sofia. Particular attention is focused on redefining the classical understanding of the citizenship as binding the individual to a nation state, author offers an analytical input through the concept of civic activity and civic engagement, going beyond the boundaries of the national public space.
