Buzludzha | Бузлуджа

Buzludzha. I’ve seen nothing like this before, ever. It’s a mysterious place, a shadow of it’s past. This ‘UFO’ tells us a story about the communist times Bulgaria has known. The monument was opened on August 23th 1981 as a tribute to the creation of the Bulgarian socialist movement in 1891. When in 1989 Todor Zhirkov, the leader of the Bulgarian Communist Party, resigned, communist times in Bulgaria ended and Buzludzha turned slowly into a vandalised and forgotten place.

How to get there?
142522129261114Between Kazanluk and Gabrovo there are two bumpy roads from the E85 who lead there. When I was at the big statue in front of the monument I thought I had to walk there. After asking around I found out there’s a road who leads all the way up to the building itself.

When you wa1425221292614nt to see what’s inside, go to the right side of the main entrance. There you will find a hole in the wall. This is the exciting, adventurous way in. If you want to climb the tower, make sure you bring a flashlight with extra batteries. I couldn’t climb the stairs when I visited because we didn’t have a good flashlight. And believe me, you do NOT want to be stuck somewhere in this tower without light.
