What To Expect
We get on the shuttle bus that will take us directly to the newly opened Museum of Socialist Art while accompanied by a professional guide who will show us some interesting signs of the Socialist period.
First, we'll watch a short movie about the most specific features of the Bulgarian communist past. Then we'll see many busts of famous communist leaders like Georgi Dimitrov, Dimitar Blagoev, Vasil Kolarov, Todor Zhivkov and Vladimir Lenin. We shall admire the typical socialist realism represented by statues of unknown partisans, workers, and Red Army soldiers. The inner exposition consists of some eminent paintings and plastics, including those depicting Stalin, Marx and Engels. The center of attraction in the museum is the great five-pointed Red Star, which was once at the top of the Party house in the city's center.
The tour shall end as we are transferred back to our hotels.
