The first site we shall visit will be the Monument of the Soviet Army, which is located in the beginning of the Borissova Garden. Then we'll ride a local trolleybus - a relic from the old times.

We'll head afterwards to the National Palace of Culture, a building that can probably be considered the largest congress hall on the Balkans which even until today holds the annual congress of the Socialist Party. The vicinity of the National Palace of Culture also keeps a remembrance of one important event in the past - a piece of the Berlin Wall, the fall of which had begun only one day before radical democratic changes occurred in Bulgaria on November 10, 1989.

Next we'll have a walking tour down a popular Sofia street - the Vitosha Boulevard - to reach the so-called "Party House", home of the former headquarter of the Communist Party. We'll also drop by the Central Department Store (TSUM), which they say is the shopping center for the communist elite.

Our next stop will be at the place of the former Georgi Dimitrov Mausoleum, constructed in 1949 and destroyed in 1999.

Finally, the tour will end around the antique market outside Alexander Nevski Cathedral, where you may have the chance to buy some old communist relic.
