Buzludzha Monument

Buzludzha Monument

Buzludzha Monument – an old abandoned communist congress hall north from Kazanluk is famous for its unique appearance. It once was a magnificent and now just massive building tucked onto Buzludzha Peak, high up in the mountains of Bulgaria.

This is a Memorial House of the Bulgarian Communist Party, which was opened in 1981. It was funded by citizen as a tribute to the socialist movement in Bulgaria. However, when country transited to democracy it was abandoned nearly three decades ago. Fun fact is that this once luxurious communist congress hall had never held a congress in its existence.

In our opinion it is a must visit location! Whole surrounding area including Kazanluk and Shipka towns are like on a palm of your hand. The views from up Buzludha Peak is something extraordinary!
