Buzludzha-Monument.com is a non-political, non-profit website dedicated to sharing information about the Buzludzha Memorial House in Bulgaria. This website has no connection to the Bulgarian government – the current owners of the monument – but in the absence of any kind of official online platform for the monument, this remains the closest thing Buzludzha has to an official website.

About the Team
Launched in June 2016, Buzludzha-Monument.com is a collaboration between Richard F. Morten (University of Central Lancashire) and Dora Ivanova (Buzludzha Project Foundation). Richard created the website and uses it as a platform to share his research into Buzludzha's past; meanwhile, Dora contributes news on behind-the-scenes developments, as well as ideas for Buzludzha's future.
Dora Ivanova is the young Bulgarian architect leading the campaign to save Buzludzha. She first visited the monument in 2014, while studying architecture at the Technical University of Berlin. Inspired by the building's potential, Dora submitted a full restoration proposal for her master's thesis and later, returning to Bulgaria, she founded the Buzludzha Project Foundation with the hope of making those plans a reality.

Richard F. Morten is a British PhD researcher with the University of Central Lancashire. After seeing the Buzludzha Monument during a holiday to Bulgaria in 2007, he became fascinated – revisiting many times, compiling historical data and eventually meeting with the monument's architect. His doctorate explores the effect of contemporary tourism to Buzludzha and asks the question of whether art and ideology can ever be separated.
