Description

The tour will begin with a short stop at the monument of the soviet army. Then you will reach the museum of socialist art using the metro.

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 ends with a return to the city center.
