Other Communists Monument, Bulgaria (visited Dec. 2013)

Recommended Posts

I think almost everyone knows it now. The monument on the 1441 m high mountain was opened in 1981 to the 1300 anniversary of the founding of the state of Bulgaria by the Communist Party (Socialist Workers Party). It's the largest ideologically motivated building in the country.

After a 2.5 hour flight to Bucharest / Romania end of December 2013, I needed for the nearly 300 km drive (partly in fog and on icy mountain roads) another six hours, until I had finally arrived ...

      I found this tank at a former military trainig area around Munich. The associated casern was closed in 2001. The tank was used as military target once. It is the only one left of originally 5 tanks.

      I hope that all makes sense

      As i promise i came back on the other day to this wonderfull house, this time someone was there and some of the windows where open. A take some photos with this incredible light. And finally explored the rest of the house, it has some really big rooms, each one more beautiful than the other. I also got a lot of new information on the property.
      You can read about the first visit here:
       
       
      Now let's go see the house.
       

      This is the dinning room, In here the family would dine with a wonderfull view of the river and the city on the other side, with their carved fireplace giving them warm.
       This room is really big, around 3 to 3 and a half meter tall.
       


      This is the most beautifull in my opinion. It would be the living room and also a place to entretain guests. It as a incredible fireplace with carved wood and as views to the front of the house and river, unfortunately the floor is full of pieces of chandelier.
       

      This derelict chapel once hosted private prayers, the priest would come from the church every sunday to give it to the count's family.
       
       

      This is the guest room, also very damaged.
       

      This is the entrance hall, it has a wonderfull dome covering it, through this doors already passed princes, dukes, counts, Presidents and industry tycoons.
       

      This stairs lead to the main bedroom, the iron work in beautifull.

      Over the stair a rotten skylight let light shine on the old stairs.
       

      This is the main bedroom, it as a balcony but is too exposed to the street, in here the last true count died 40 years after the monarchy was abolished.
       

      This is the extension that where added to the house in the 30's
       
       
      It's really a wonderfull house, a remainder of a far by gone era.
       
      Hope you enjoyed.

      A repair facility  of a big steel factory here in Belgium. Abandoned for many years but still surrounded by razor wire .
      Here they repaired the trains and also other equipment used in in steel factory (radio's, chargers,....).
      It' took some walking to see all of the building (and still missed some parts.It was a solo explore so I was cautious about every sound I heard. Found a former living quarter of some copper thieves with sleeping corner and a crude home-made heater/stove. This was my kind of Sunday morning activity. Tnx for watching. Hopefully not to many pictures.
