WELCOME


The House-Monument of the Bulgarian Communist Party sits on Buzludzha Peak, high up in the mountains of Bulgaria. It was opened in 1981, as a citizen-funded tribute to the socialist movement in Bulgaria... but since the country's transition to democracy it has lain abandoned.

     

Now, after nearly three decades of neglect, a new architectural vision offers an opportunity to preserve this unique heritage site for future generations.
