COMMUNISM TOURS


These are tours exploring the remains of the communist regime in Bulgaria, like monumental complexes, old factories, stalinist architecture neighborhoods etc.

The aim of these itineraries and programs is to provide the participants with possibilities for visiting and shooting of remains of the communist regime in Bulgaria.

The objects/places could be split up in the following groups:

А) Socialist industrial landscape – old active and non-active factories and plants and their surroundings. Some of these buildings and complexes are remarkable objects, put in the context of the modern urban landscape.

B) Socialist collective housing construction – half–destroyed and fully destroyed old homes, public buildings with their typical large size and style. To this category we can also add the so-called ghost villages, abandoned spectral villages, situated mainly in mountain regions of the country.

С) Socialist realism – huge public buildings, generally situated in downtowns of big cities and especially in Sofia. This Stalin style of architecture is not typical for Bulgaria only, but here can be seen some of the most impressive examples. To this category belong also the monumental sculptures and memorials spread all over the country.

In most of the cases, these are objects, which might be seen and shot solely in Bulgaria
