The House-Monument of the Bulgarian Communist Party

Whoa, I just found out about this! What a spectacularly beautiful building! It looks like a flying saucer. This was built in 1981 and was used by the Bulgarian Communist Party for various types of gatherings including award ceremonies, educational and diplomatic events. Sadly, eight years later it was abandoned and now lies in a serious state of disrepair.

    I love this wonderful example of ‘Brutalist’ architecture. I have visited Bulgaria, but never got to see it. There are some good examples in London, that I used to enjoy when I lived there.

    And this one that I saw in Prague.

    It’s a real pity that the Bulgarians have let their fantastic monument slide into decay.
    Best wishes, Pete.
