Buzludzha - amazing communist monument


A one-day tour to the unique monument of the Communism in Bulgaria at Buzludzha peak - the "UFO" or the "Frying Pan" - the monument is still remarkable example of the grand ideas of the communist party

Itinerary

Communism has obviously infuenced the whole world history. And while some countires are enjoying a variable form which includes some typical characterisitcs of the free, open economy market, here in Bulgaria we still have strong feelings pro- or against that promised "bright future". Some - on the North pole as an attitude, some - to the Equator, many of our parents still remiscing about the past, when all was safe, secure, jobs were available, and they were able to find their way around and through the "system".
Enjoy a one-day tour to the one and only on Earth monument - meeting hall at the peak of the Stara Planina mountain - Hadji Dimitar. . What? You thought it was named. . . "BUZLUDZHA"?? Yes, this its name now, and there's alot more cloudy information it so do witht he renaming of that peak. . . including the creating of a total mess with the names of the nearby peaks - Shipka is just one of them. . .
