Travel back in time


Sofia communism tour will bring you back in time. Let us experience Bulgaria during the communism. Get to know what everyday life and the communist regime were like.
We will begin with a walking tour of the city center. Next, a visit to the Museum of Socialist art. The Museum is closed on Mondays. If you want to have the tour here anyway, we will include additional communist building on the tour.
In the museum, you will learn about the life during the communist regime. We continue with a visit to the Bells monument. It was built in 1979 for all the children in the world to play together.
We will visit a residential neighbourhood with residential blocks and learn about the communist living. We will also pass by an antique market where you could get a souvenir from the near past. We finish with an optional lunch at a restaurant in a communism style.

The tour can be organized also with a limousine. In this case, the price is higher. Please, inquire me for a customized tour.
