About
In this one day tour, you will have the chance to get acquainted with the communist period (socialistic period) in Bulgaria. The socialistic republic of Bulgaria existed from 1946 until 1989. This is one of the most controversial parts of modern history. But one thing is for sure - like any other political system, communism (socialism) bequeathed us both things that we would like to forget and others that we can admire.

I traveled through Bulgaria to the Buzludzha Mountain/ monument with Daniel Milushev. It was an amazing experience. Daniel should be teaching history at the University with such a knowledge about history of Bulgaria and his neighbors countries. He is a polite and very intelligent person who at the end of the trip became a friend. Two thumbs up!

Very pleasant and interesting trip! Our guide picked us up at 9:30 and immediately emmersed us in the communist history of both Sofia and the country.

The guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and polite and his English was just impeccable.

Highly recommended!!!
