Dive into the enigmatic history of communist Bulgaria with this in-depth self-guided audio tour of Sofia. Designed for history buffs and curious travelers alike, this tour shines a light on a 45-year chapter of the city's past. The journey begins at the Largo area, where you'll be greeted by architecturally formidable buildings that echo tales from the time when Bulgaria was behind the Iron Curtain. As you venture from the mighty columns of the Largo, you'll visit landmarks like the former Communist Party House and the monumental National Palace of Culture. These structures stand as silent witnesses to the city's communist-era narratives. Your route then guides you past the Monument to the Soviet Army and the ever-bustling TZUM, before leading you to the Sofia Largo Metro Station, adorned with historical artworks. The final chapters of your tour unfold at significant government buildings, including the Council of Ministers and Sofia University 'St. Kliment Ohridski'. Your expedition through Sofia's communist legacy culminates with inspiring stories of resilience and change, leaving you with a profound understanding of the city's transformation. Memories of this journey will be etched in your mind long after the sounds of history fade away in the bustling streets of modern-day Sofia.
