The Memorial House 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,
this research project aims to provide a comprehensive guide
to the PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE of the Buzludzha Monument.
